Wisconsin Lawmakers Seek To Arrest Officials Who Implement Obamacare

Wisconsin Lawmakers Seek To Arrest Officials Who Implement Obamacare
Even though House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has acknowledged that Obamacare is the “law of the land,” nine state lawmakers in Wisconsin are hoping to ensure that President Obama’s health reform law won’t ever be implemented in their state. The group of Tea Party-affiliated Republicans is backing a bill that would arrest any federal officials who attempt to implement Obamacare in Wisconsin.

The state officials responded to a survey from the right-wing advocacy group Campaign for Liberty to confirm they would support “legislation to nullify ObamaCare and authorize state and local law enforcement to arrest federal officials attempting to implement the unconstitutional health care scheme known as ObamaCare.” As the Journal Sentinel reports, the nine lawmakers who say they would back such a bill remain unconvinced of the health law’s constitutionality:

Rep. Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) is one of the nine from Wisconsin who told the Campaign for Liberty he would back legislation to declare Obamacare illegal and allow police to arrest federal officials who take steps to implement it in Wisconsin. He said he believes the health care law is unconstitutional, despite the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that it passes constitutional muster.

“Just because Obama was re-elected does not mean he’s above the constitution,” Kapenga said.

I guess nobody told them President Obama WON Wisconsin, including their home boy Paul Lyin' Ryan's district!

Dear Mr. Kapenga,

You are also not above the Constitution.

Sincerely,

The majority of American voters and the Supreme Court

Obamacare includes mental health care, doesn't it? Because I'm seeing an enormous need for it among Republicans.

Somebody's going to end up in jail, alright -- and it's not going to be federal officials.
