South Carolina Bill: Implement Obamacare, Go To Jail For Five Years

Pursuing an archaic legal theory that punctuated pre-Civil War disputes between the federal government and states, South Carolina state Rep. Bill Chumley last week pre-filed a bill for the upcoming legislative session that would criminalize implementation of President Barack Obama’s 2010 healthcare reform law.

If his bill becomes law, any state official caught enforcing the healthcare law would be guilty of a misdemeanor and “must be fined not more than one thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.”

Federal officials caught enforcing the law, however, would be given stiffer punishment under the proposal.

Any federal employee or contractor enforcing the law “is guilty of a felony and, upon conviction, must be fined not more than five thousand dollars, or imprisoned not more than five years, or both,” the bill proposes.

“I think we’re within our rights to do this,” Chumley explained to U.S. News. “It’s an obligation, I swore an oath to uphold the Constitution and protect the people.”

    My new hero…that rocks!

  • CaptTurbo

    Great idea.

    • Paul

      This is the first time in years that I have felt a little hope for the US!! Well done. Now we have to fight them from taking away our guns. Our votes are no longer valid and if they take away our guns, we’ll have nothing left to protect us from government! Woo Hoo!

  • Jaybird7

    Bravo!!!! Finally somebody who fights back against this Tyranny.

    • Sandra Lee Smith

      Others are doing so from different aspects; but it’s an uphill battle for all!

  • good for them if we don’t fight it now what will be next?

  • Sam

    Good idea that will go nowhere. Should not have reelected a Muslim President, if you didn’t want to destroy the country.

    • Sandra Lee Smith

      The CFR chose him, and there was no getting past that!

  • Steve

    Election was rigged or he would have never went back in. Lots of facts out there to proveit andno one will do anything about it. Did you know Obama did not win a state where voter ID was required.

    • Sandra Lee Smith

      This thing is so much BIGGER and NASTIER than that! It’s not just THIS election or even the past few; our elections have been rigged and fixed since before WILSON was elected a century ago! Our Constitution was perverted in the late 1860s and the federal government incorporated to become the Federal government {caps important here}, but the conspiracy itself is LITERALLY GLOBAL in scope, and it’s against ALL humanity and liberty!

    • Yes, and the mathematical odds against his losing in those seven States alone yet winning in all the others that didn’t have voter ID are of the order of 223390000000 to one. About those of throwing eighteen straight passes in a row at a crap table in Vegas. Never yet heard of anyone doing that.

    It’s about time.

  • HadEnuf

    Praise the Lord! Will the South rise again? – Ipray that it does! I recently moved to SC and I’ll be more than glad to help enforce the the law – for free! It is way past time that the states (START MANNING MILITIAS) and the people start taking ACTION against this Muslim-Marxist and his communist regime.

    • Dee cide for yourself

      Well Stated!

  • Sandra Lee Smith

    GO South Carolina! The Feds wouldn’t listen to the people about that insanity otherwise, so put their derrireres in prison for violating their duties and FAILING to listen to the REAL government: the people!

  • Teapartyjoe

    Great idea. That is where Obama and Holder belong and most of the senate and house Democrats for that matter. Maybe Lawyers in general.

    Death Penalty for tyranny against the people.

  • CincinnatiRIck

    I don’t see any legal rationale as to how this would work so that we could evaluate whether it is anything more than a political protest and if it has real possibilities. McCulloch v. Maryland (1819), while specific to the states power to tax, contains the general principle that a state cannot impede lawful activities and rights under the US Constitution and laws. I think this Chumley fellow is going to have to be a great deal more clever and less transparent in what he is trying to do than thus far appears to be the case.

    Hot Damn…A state with guts…Moving to South Carolina tonight!

  • Harold

    GOOD for the people of S.C. .it’s about time someone shows some gunmption and stops this twerp in the white house along with the gutless wimps in the congress and the un-American commies in the senate. I also have a question, ” How in the world did the people of Nev. ever elect such a snake as Harriet Ried to the senate? If there ever was a person who is total jerk and the personifacation of a village idiot, Reid is.

  • Gee…some people in America actually have spines

  • Lemrob

    Now that is the best news I have read all day.
