Alabama Governor Robert Bentley said yesterday that Alabama will not be setting up a state insurance exchange to implement the Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare"). The Governor stated that the tax increase that this act imposes on Alabama's citizens is unacceptable. He also stated that his conversations with other governors indicate that many of them feel the same way.
This is what I have been advocating for some time: the states must NULLIFY unconstitutional edicts by the federal government and simply REFUSE to go along. Further, the nullifying states should communicate and coordinate resistance to federal tyranny imposed by Barack Obama.
I am proud to say that my Confederate ancestors were Alabamans.
