Idaho GOP Ready to Nullify Obamacare
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho led the nation last year in passing a law to sue the federal government over the healthcare overhaul.
Now, its Republican-dominated Legislature plans to use an 18th century doctrine to declare President Barack Obama’s signature bill null and void.
Lawmakers in six other states — Maine, Montana, Oregon, Nebraska, Texas and Wyoming — are also considering “nullification” bills. They contend states, not the U.S. Supreme Court, are the ultimate arbiters when Congress and the president have run amok.
