Calling the execution of the healthcare law a “real constitutional crisis”, former Congressman Allen West was interviewed on Fox News’ “On the Record with Gretta Van Susteren” Friday night.
When Susteren asked West whether or not the state attorneys general were actually going to take any action against the Obama administration’s lawless handling of the healthcare law, West told Susteren that they wouldn’t have a choice because states were stepping in to keep the feds in check.
“One of the things you have to look at is whether or not they [the states] can go back and challenge this based upon a thin possibility of nullification; sovereign states using the Ninth and Tenth Amendments of the Constitution are not going to follow this [Obamacare]…”
But can the States nullify Obamacare?
According to Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, the “Father of the Constitution”: Absolutely.
