Will Louisiana Be The First State To Tell The Feds “NO!”?

January 15, 2010

First the Congressmen and Senators said “NO! We will not let the federal government change OUR health care, but we’ll change it for other people”. Then President Obama said “NO! I will not have my healthcare changed, but I’ll help change it for other people.” The people of our nation saw this and said, “Do not change our health care”. But the, Congressmen, Senators, and President continued on, intent on changing health care for everybody else… except for the Amish. Who knows why they were exempt, but they were.

Then the Unions said, “No, you will not change our health care, but you will change it for everybody else”, and congress listened. Congress apparently was too busy listening to their own self interests and their union buddies to listen to the American public. When the people of the heavily Democrat state of Massachussetts tells Washington, “No, you will not dramatically change our health care while giving yourselves excellent healthcare”, will Barack Obama and company still refuse to listen? Or will they push the bill through anyway?

And if so… will they listen when the States say “No! You will not drastically change our health care!”? They may have no other options as Louisiana is already preparing to tell Washington, “No!”. It’s a sad day when Washington refuses to listen to the people… good bye freedom, hello tyrants, the change we got.

What has to be disheartening for even Democrats running for state offices, is that they have to now take a stand on a wildly unpopular issue, in order to retain their own seats.

  1. [...] Louisiana State Senator A.G. Crowe (R, Slidell) is introducing a bill for the 2010 legislative session in Baton Rouge that would make Obamacare illegal if it violates state laws, effectively making Obamacare null and void in the Pelican State.Senator Crowe states that his bill “provides that no law or rule shall compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer or health care provider to participate in any health care system or health insurance.”Crowe’s proposed Senate Bill (download .pdf file) begins as follows:HEALTH CARE. Prohibits state or local governmental coercion of any Louisiana employer, health care provider, or individual to compel participation in any health care system or health insurance plan.Crowe insists that Obamacare violates Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution and “is therefore unconstitutional.” He also feels that the president’s plans violates the 10th Amendment among others.In addition to the proposed legislation nullifying any possible federal healthcare laws, Senator Crowe has asked Buddy Caldwell, the State Attorney General, to determine if, in his opinion, Obamacare would violate any state laws, the Constitution, or would pass onerous unfunded mandates on the state. (download .pdf of letter)Senator Crowe has been involved in many conservative projects including the 2009 State sovereignty resolution, a Tenth Amendment policy project. Also in 2009 Crowe introduced a resolution proclaiming April as “Abortion Recovery Awareness Month” which was signed by Governor Jindal. Crowe also became a signatory to AFP’s No Climate Tax Pledge. (Crowe’s committee assignments and associations can be seen at Project Vote Smart)Senator Crowe is part of an increasing push by state lawmakers to affirm state sovereignty and Tenth Amendment rights, laws that will likely come before the U.S. Supreme court in short order once Obamacare is passed in D.C. According to Michael Boldin’s Tenth Amendment Center some 25 states have introduced state sovereignty resolutions or bills that would nullify federal laws that the state legislature feels violates their laws and those of the U.S. Constitution.(Hat tip LouisianaConservative.com) [...]
