Democrat Montana Governor Schweitzer made an unannounced visit to the Democrat Caucus Monday to voice his concern over what he calls these un-American and unconstitutional bills. – “When we say, that we will nullify a portion of federal law that is simply saying that we don’t consider ourselves bound by the constitution of the United States of America, that’s very dangerous territory,” says Governor Schweitzer.
Republican House Rep. Derek Skees, sponsor of the Montana Nullification Reaffirmation Act, replied with – “the Governor isn’t qualified to deem bills unconstitutional. He isn’t any more of a scholar in constitutionality of law then any of us.”
Rep. Skees bill reaffirms the state of Montana’s 10th Amendment right to hold the federal government in check and within the limited powers delegated to the FED in the US Constitution. Governor Schweitzer has publicly deemed that right “unconstitutional” and even “un-American.”
In order for the Governor to be right, the Bill of Rights would have to be “unconstitutional” and even “un-American,” as Rep. Skees bill is based upon Amendments Nine and Ten of the US Constitution.
