The week after Chief Justice John Roberts sided with liberal justices and upheld Obamacare in the Supreme Court, Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced that his state would not comply with the ruling. Said Scott: “We care about having a health care safety net for…vulnerable Floridians, but this is an expansion that just doesn’t make any sense.”
And while such an announcement may not have been applauded by the MSM, the left, or even the Republican establishment, we know today that it was applauded by Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who is taking the same stand in his state.
Said Perry: “I stand proudly with the growing chorus of governors who reject the Obamacare power grab.” He added: “We in Texas have no intention to implement so-called state exchanges or to expand Medicaid under Obamacare. I will not be party to socializing healthcare.”
Both Scott and Perry are perfectly aligned with the 10th Amendment, which says clearly: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the People.”
