Yes, I too am trying to understand this, how it would play out.
My question is, we already have OPTING OUT, which a few states have already done (perhaps Idaho is one, see post #7), and the most recent I have heard of is Florida. So, back to my question: how is nullification different from opting out in how it would play out? Is it just a legal thing, that the states decide on the basis of the 10th Amendment that they will NULLIFY this law?
My guess is that the attorneys in the Governors’ mansions all over this country are going to be really busy, and I would love to be a fly in the wall at the next Governors’ Meeting.
Repeal and replace with something we can afford, is my hope and prayer for this country.
However, if opting out or nullification would take care of Obama’s inferior health care quicker than repeal and replace, I would be for whatever does the trick.
Americans do not want that INFERIOR health care. It is just about Gov’t control and not a blessing to us.
It is inferior, inferior, inferior...INFERIOR!
Obama may just declare the opted out states as secessionists.
He would rather castigate the non-Obamataxcare states through the MSM.
Thats just fine, peachy and dandy as we can counter.
We can counter with our own election, we have Tea Party candidates, we can have a popular vote.
We don’t need Obama or Romney, let them battle for control of the blue states of Obamacataxcare-land.
He made a good point, although he seems to have also made a factional error. The war of 1861 was not over nullification but southern independence/secession/revolution.
The nullification crisis took place almost 3 decades earlier in 1832 and did not lead to war, nor did it end as a Washington victory as some books say. the fact is South Carolina only backed down after Washington lowered the Tariff of Abomination, and then nullified their bill of force.
