SC Senator: “Heads Will Roll” If Obamacare Nullification Fails

The South Carolina State Senator who successfully passed the first nullification law out of his “Republican-controlled” chamber took to social media this week, warning his colleagues in no uncertain terms that they had better follow suit on a much bigger nullification test.

Tom Davis – whose bill nullifying the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in South Carolina passed the State Senate in late March – warned that “heads will roll” if State Senators fail to pass a S.C. House bill nullifying U.S. President Barack Obama’s socialized medicine monstrosity.

“SC House nullifies Obamacare,” Davis wrote on his Facebook page. “SC Senate must now concur. We’d better be up to task, or heads will roll.”

Damn … we haven’t seen Davis this saucy since last August, when he slammed U.S. Federal Reserve chairman (and South Carolina native) Ben Bernanke as a “traitor” and a “dictator” (criticisms which aren’t as off base as you might think).

This website has no problem with the Obamacare nullification effort – or the nullification movement in general (click here and here to see what we mean).

Our only concern? That “Republican” lawmakers will use the eventual failure of this bill – either in the legislative process or in court – as a pretext for supporting the massive Medicaid expansion associated with Obamacare.

Remember, this is the same argument that played out back in 2009 – when “Republicans” (including S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley) strenuously objected to the Obama “stimulus” but then voted to greedily lap up its funding anyway.

Isn’t it ironic (don’t ya think)?

There’s also some irony in this fight, as Haley’s administration has pushed for – and succeeded in generating – a surge in Medicaid enrollment in South Carolina.

Anyway … it’s worth pointing out that the Obamacare nullification bill that cleared the S.C. House was stripped of several of its most controversial enforcement provisions, rendering it more of a symbolic gesture than anything else.

Remember, the original version of the bill held that any federal employee attempting to enforce Obamacare would be “guilty of a felony and, upon conviction, must be fined not more than five thousand dollars, or imprisoned not more than five years,” while any state employee attempting to enforce the law would be “guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined not more than one thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than two years.”

Both of those provisions were scrapped from the bill that passed the House by a 65-34 vote (with at least a dozen Republicans – including some of the bill’s original sponsors – sitting on the sidelines).

Symbolic or not…and you can BASH Republicans for Taking on Obama all you want. But most people read the headlines, not Torturously written Wonk-speak, speculation that always attacks the GOP…
So: Any Some-Beech who sees anything close to NAZI-Obama-Care implementation, they will have legislative backing, and reason to tell whoever is pushing Obama-Care, to CRAM it…
In other words FITS: These Republicans, you hate- gutted legislation or not- are doing FAR more in the fight for Freedom than any of your beloved democrats or the Selfish Dolt, career politician who you served under… (figuratively and actually)….

Uh, yeah, no, that isn’t going to happen. States can’t make a federal worker doing his/her job illegal. You can’t arrest someone with the EPA, USDA, FCC, FEMA, etc., on the sole basis that they are simply performing their job function as described under federal law.

Medical marijuana dispensaries get raided by the feds all the damn time despite state laws making exceptions for them. Do you really think this crap will survive in SCOTUS? lol… Calling it now: “Justice Roberts strikes again!”

It is a giant waste of time and taxpayer money to defend such bullshit in court, but apparently SC loves doing that pretty fucking often.

So I LOVE seeing SC legislators using my tax dollars going Against Der Fuhrer Obama who HATES freedom, and the will of the people.

And aside from money, iId love to see you waltz your effeminate, lisping @$$ into my place of business, and try to Force ObamaCare on me. Saying it’s one thing. Doing it’s Another…especially when Obama failed (miserably) at overturing the 2nd amendment…Hahahaha…

So, you’re not bitching about tax dollars being pissed down the toilet, you just want it pissed down the toilet in a vain effort to stop something you don’t agree with, even though it won’t ever fucking happen. Funny.

Oh, and no one has to “force ObamaCare” on you. Have fun going off the grid if you don’t like it, because it is going to change the entire market whether you like it or not, and the only way your ass is going to escape it is to join the ranks of the uninsured. But even a god-fearing Republican like you knows how fucked an uninsured person is in this country. You may not admit it is a problem, but you’d be damned to experience it yourself.

Maybe you need to understand the constitution a bit better. If you’re going to talk about the Supremacy Clause, at least understand it. Why don’t we look at what was stated at it’s creation.

“Hamilton added: “It will not, I presume, have escaped observation that it expressly confines this supremacy to laws made pursuant to the Constitution….”

The National law must be in conformity with the Constitution. It isn’t, so you need to go back to school.

The federal government’s delegated powers is extremely small. It never had and never will, have authority to delegate things like eating habits, drugs or healthcare.

The constitution is a system of government, it EXPLICITLY STATES what roles and powers government has. If it isn’t listed, it is to the states and people respectfully.

Clearly, you’re the idiot.

The “train wreck” that is Obamacare must be repealed root and branch at the Federal level.

Only Mark Sanford in the May 7th SC-1 Special Election has promised to support and lead efforts to repeal this disaster that will raise premiums and decimate the healthcare industry across America.

Meanwhile his opponent is backed by the same radical leftist, corporate controlled morons like Pelosi who said “we must pass the law to see what’s in it”. Really!

I don’t think you understand the meaning of the word. Hypocrisy means saying one thing and doing another. The perfect example woud be Congressman Mark Sanford calling indignantly for President Clinton’s resignation and then committing the same acts as Governor and refusing to resign himself. Or another example would be talking excessively about “family values” and his devotion to “Jenny and the boys” and then leaving them on Father’s Day weekend to see his mistress.

John Duncan May 4, 2013 at 9:29 pm

Sorry could care less about his personal life.

Whether he has a mistress or ten of them and neither do I care about his (admittedly sweet) boys.

I care about how he’s going to vote in Congress and if he’s going to oppose spending, raising taxes, repealing Obamacare, bringing jobs to Charleston like he did with the Boeing factory, protecting the rights of the unborn, protecting civil liberties and much more .

On every single issue he is WAY, WAY ahead of the Democrat shill who calls herself a businesswoman but works for a public university and took stimulus funds claiming it would bring 20,000 jobs to SC but ended up bringing 134 jobs costing 350k per job!

I mean come on. THERE IS NO CONTEST !!!

This is why Mark will win on Tuesday and you’ll look a fool. Hell, he could have a sex party and celebrate if he wants to.

I DONT CARE !!!

Just as long as he goes to DC and votes the way I as a conservative expect him to and you can pretty much guarantee he will.

On the other hand the Democrat will vote with Pelosi and against everything I and district 1 voters care about;

Game, set & match. Now try and make a case against him without mentioning something so IRRELEVANT as his personal and family life ?

Because you can’t can you.

Okay, how about this to nm just a few:
As Congessman he voted against funds for the Ravenel Bridge; he voted against funds to dredge Charleston harbor.
As Governor, he vetoed funding for the “Meals on Wheels” program for the poor and elderly; he vetoed funds for “Camp Chemo,” where kids plagued with cancer could have a chance to have a little fun. He vetoed funds for Camp Burnt Gin to help the mentally challenged. He vetoed a tax(the lowest in the nation) on cigarettes that would have raised needed funds and discouraged smoking.
In fact, other than parroting the usual self-serving limited government, low taxes rhetoric in a state that already is the classic example of both, give me an example of something Mark Sanford has ever done that actually helped people and made this state a better place in which to live.

I like how by passing nullification bills they violate the oath they took when they became senators and house members to also uphold the Constitution of the United States

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I am duly qualified, according to the Constitution of this State, to exercise the duties of the office to which I have been elected (or appointed), and that I will to the best of my ability, discharge the duties thereof, and preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of this State and of the United States. So Help me God.”

Dear Senator Davis

Before you start your cockroach beheading jihad there are a few facts that may help you to keep your cockroach head

Contrary to popular perception, cockroaches’ heads also house their brains. I know, fucking unbelievable. However much of their nervous system activity takes place in nerve ganglia located throughout their bodies.

In male cockroaches the major center of activity is in their pecker, anus or both if they are bi-popular

In female cockroaches the major center of activity is their mouth. One would be led to believe that the vagina would be the hot spot but as everyone who has been married for more than two days knows, it ain’t so

This is one of the reasons why a headless cockroach can live for more than a week. When a headless cockroach finally dies, it dies of thirst

So if you embark on your cockroach beheading jihad, beware a headless fellow cockroach could still do you in a week after you do him in

Here we go again.

Do these people read the constitution or have a passing knowledge of American history? See John C. Calhoun.

From the Onion:

HUNTSVILLE, AL–For the 135th straight year since Gen. Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox, representatives for the South announced Monday that the region has postponed plans to rise again.

“Yes, sir. The South will rise again, and when it does, I’ll be right up front waving the Stars and Bars,” said Dock Mullins of Decatur, GA. “But first, I gotta get my truck fixed and get that rusty old stove out of my yard.”

“Lord willing, and the creek don’t rise, we gonna rise again,” said Sumter, SC, radiator technician Hap Slidell, who describes himself as “Southern by the grace of God.” “I don’t know exactly when we’re gonna do it, but one of these days, we’re gonna show them Yankees how it’s done.”

“The way things stand, things in the Deep South almost have to get better. Otherwise, the people who live there will devolve into overall-wearing sub-morons within a century,” said Professor Dennis Lassiter of Princeton University. “Either Southerners will start improving themselves, or they’ll be sold to middle-class Asians as pets.”

I personally think until the states are willing to actually stand up to the federal government and take a no-compromise approach against unconstitutional acts this bill is more or less a lost cause. The states individually have to be willing to vigorously enforce these “nullification” bills by actually including the penalty provisions and actually spending some money to enforce it. The states are on a tight leash these days with all the federal money that subsidizes their individual budgets every year. I think the states might find kicking out all the fiscally taxing federal programs and rejecting federal funds with “strings attached” might put them in a much better position to begin with. Heads aren’t going to roll here either way since this bill becomes more or less a political statement than a blunt instrument of enforcement.

Just my two cents.

You can take a tour boat to Fort Sumter on a boat owned by Chip Campsen, who was provided with a no-bid contract to this federally owned facility by none other than former Congressman Mark Sanford. Amazing how crony capitalism works.

WATCH, WATCH, WATCH AS THE FOOLS WALK IN!!!

DUMB AS BRICKS, AS IGNORANT AS HORSES ASSES.

THE SC LEGISLATURE IS IN SESSION.

Passing laws that nobody reads. Tilting at wind mills, and waving red flags at the Bulls.

Lets all applaud as the fools act just like they did in 1860.

BY THE WAY, HOW DID THE LAST FEDERAL LAW NULLIFICATION ACT WORK OUT FOR SC IN 1860???

OH, YES; WE GOT OUR BUTTS KICKED ALL OVER THE PLACE.

THEY EVEN BURNED DOWN OUR CAPITOL.

UNFORTUNATELY, WE REBUILT THE CIRCUS WITH 3 NEW RINGS:

SENATE, LEGISLATURE AND IN THE CENTER RING: CLOWN HALEY.

What can possibly go wrong with this outstanding show?????

All our taxpayers have bought at ticket to the new Lawyer’s Support Act, soon to be showing in Federal Court.

SC didn’t pass the Ordnance of Nullification in 1860 – it was in 1832. It ended with Andrew Jackson promising he would hang the political leadership of SC and the rest of the South refusing to follow us over the cliff. So they dropped it. In any event, it’s called the Supremacy Clause. Look it up Tom.

What dose being constitutional have to do with anything. 1/2 the laws on the books are unconstitutional. Pass the bill . The court cost will be less than the health care bill.. I have never seen the Feds enforce what we the state refuse to obey. It just talk. You think Obama would send in the army and Federal Marshals . The fight needs to start some where. Why not SC. When the Feds are wrong we must stand our ground.
