I support “The Federal Healthcare Nullification Act” for Colorado…

I am a member and supporter of the Tenth Amendment Center and its founder Michael Boldin. He has partnered with to set in motion a constitutional repeal of the unconstitutional healthcare “reform” bill, forced through by an out of control congress, with this petition drive. If elected Governor of Colorado I will spearhead this process in Colorado.

Here are some excerpts from the press release:

"We recommend a different path, one advised by prominent founders such as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison - nullification," said Boldin. Nullification, according to the Center, is the rightful remedy to an unconstitutional act, as it considers the recently-signed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to be. When a state nullifies a federal law, it is proclaiming that the law in question is void and inoperative, or non-effective, within the boundaries of that state; or, in other words, not a law as far as the state is concerned."

"In partnership with, the Tenth Amendment Center has announced the release of their model legislation for such state-level action, the Federal Health Care Nullification Act. The Act would codify in state law that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act "is not authorized by the Constitution of the United hereby declared to be invalid...shall not be specifically rejected...and shall be considered null and void and of no effect" within the boundaries of any state enacting it. It also mandates that it "shall be the duty" of the State's legislature "to adopt and enact any and all measures as may be necessary to prevent the enforcement."

"It's time to remind the federal government that We the People are in charge and not the other way around," said Boldin. "Following the Constitution every issue, every time, without exceptions or excuses requires us to resist federal overreach and keeping our health care decisions where the Founders assured us that they'd be and where they belong...close to home."

We need to support the effort and stop this federal government.
