Ohio Votes to Nullify PPACA Insurance Mandates


By:Tenthamendmentcenter.com

“For Immediate Release – (November 8, 2011) – On the eve of the 213th anniversary of the passage of Thomas Jefferson’s Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, laying the intellectual groundwork of nullification, 


the people of Ohio exercised their power and nullified the insurance mandate in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Ohioans passed Issue Three, a constitutional amendment to preserve their right to choose their own health care and health care coverage. Preliminary returns indicated a wide margin of victory, with more than 60 percent approving the amendment. The amendment makes it illegal for any local, state or federal law to require Ohio residents to purchase health insurance, effectively nullifying a key component of the PPACA.

“This signifies that state level resistance to federal power is not just an old idea relegated to history books,” Tenth Amendment Center executive director Michael Boldin said, “It’s something that’s alive and well right now.”

Ohio became the tenth state to reject the insurance mandates in the PPACA.

“James Madison said that power over objects which in the ordinary course of affairs concern the lives, liberties and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement and prosperity of the State would remain with the states. Health care choices clearly fall into that category,” TAC communications director Mike Maharrey said. “Ohio sent a strong message to D.C. tonight. We are not going to just sit back and accept your unconstitutional power grabs.”

On Nov. 10, 1798, the Kentucky legislature adopted resolutions authored by Thomas Jefferson in response to the Alien and Sedition Acts. In these resolutions, Jefferson explained the states’ power to judge the constitutionality of an act, while also asserting that unconstitutional federal acts hold no force. He wrote, “That the government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among parties having no common judge, each party has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions, as of the mode and measure of redress…”

Jefferson continued, “whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force”

As the federal government continues to grow, states have begun to push back more aggressively. Fifteen states have defied the federal government and legalized medicinal cannabis, and six years after the passage of the Real ID Act, states continue to successfully resist its implementation.

“Nullification is so simple, even a 3-year-old can do it. You just say, ‘No!’” Boldin said. “Washington D.C. will never willingly limit itself. It’s up to the states to put a check on federal power and say, ‘No!’ when Congress passes these unconstitutional acts. Ohio stepped up and did that tonight. Thomas Jefferson would be proud.”Read Here

Operation: DOMINO EFFECT



Announcing Operation: DOMINO EFFECT
Michael Badnarik - “On January 14, 2012 I will be teaching my Constitution class on the floor of the State House in Oklahoma City. I would like to teach my class in *every* state capitol in 2012! With your help we can have unconstitutional laws falling like dominoes.

Would you like the members of your state legislature to understand and respect the Constitution? State Representative Charles Key has requested that I come to Oklahoma City to present my eight-hour class on the floor of the State House. Can you imagine me teaching from the spot where the Speaker of the House presides over the legislative process? This sounds almost too good to be true, but I think the moment has come when Americans have a chance to stand up and take back their cherished republic. We have an opportunity to snatch Liberty from the jaws of tyranny if we join together to act now.

I would like you to eMail me the name, phone number, and physical address for the Speaker of the House in your state. I will send them a written letter informing them about the class in Oklahoma, and requesting an opportunity to offer the class in their state capitol. I would also like you to send a written letter requesting the state representative from your area to work with the Speaker of the House to make this happen. If you send me a copy of the letter you have written, I will send you a copy of the letter I have written to your Speaker of the House. With a little effort - and a little luck - this could generate a renewed wave of interest in the Constitution. Given all the protest rallies popping up across the country, I feel certain that Americans are desperate enough to make this change happen.

When you eMail me information for this project, please make the subject title "DOMINO EFFECT: TEXAS" (or whatever state you are writing about.) That will help me keep track of which states I have already written to.

Be advised that this effort meshes perfectly with Sheriff Richard Mack's COUNTY SHERIFF PROJECT that is scheduled to happen at the end of January. Please visit his website to contribute money to make it possible to bring 200 county sheriffs to Las Vegas to learn about the oath of office they took to protect your life, Liberty, and property.

I have already received information for the following states:”

Michigan (Jeanne P)
Indiana (Phyllis K)
South Carolina (Ron K)
