Why on Earth are people missing this? It doesn’t matter. If the States don’t, then the Feds have the right, pursuant to the law, to come in and set it up and the States can’t stop it. This is utterly misguided. We are stuck with it for now so I’d rather have the States run it.
People need to read and stop listening to pundits.
I agree with you. The Supremacy clause give the Feds this power. When Congress “moves into an area” overwhelmingly - the state laws are irrelevant. This is one of the reasons Wallace was wrong when he stood in front of that door. Whether we like it or not - this 2500 page monstrosity fits the description of “overwhelming” by every examination I’ve seen.
The limits Roberts put on Medicare funding are really irrelevant to the discussion.
This part of the cost of living in a Federal system where the other balancing clauses such as the commerce clause have become overly broad giving the Federal government license to move into every aspect of our lives.
I’m thinking Constitutional Convention is the only legal course now. States trying to nullify Federal law is what started the Civil War!
I’d rather see the Federal Government come into a State and try to setup and enforce this! No time like the present to refuse Unconstitutional laws.
I think the states can opt out and must. It is time to take our freedom back
Yes, but if the feds set it up, the feds have to pay for it.
