Obamacare Null and Void

While the push by more than a dozen state Attorney Generals to bring a case in front of the U.S. Supreme Court to have Obamacare ruled unconstitutional has garnered plenty of media attention, I have discovered another movement that has flown under the radar. This movement would have state legislatures declare Obamacare null and void since it assumes powers not granted to the federal government in the Constitution. As Thomas Jefferson once said,

whenever the federal government assumed powers not delegated to it, those acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force" and that a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.

The principles of the state AGs and this idea are cousins of each other. They both believe Obamacare uses powers it doesn't have. The difference is that the first relies on federal judges to declare said law unconstitutional. The second relies on the states themselves to rule it null and void and dare the feds to declare their act after unconstitutional.

Nullification? Really? Now Andrew Jackson is really turning over in his grave.

AG, I don't know what happened to your comment so here it is,

"Nullification? Really? Now Andrew Jackson is really turning over in his grave."

As for your comment, I'm not sure what that means.

Andrew Jackson was President when South Carolina tried to Nullify the Tariff of 1828. It created a huge rift between him and his VP John C Calhoun who eventually resigned to promote Nullification in the Senate.
