As President Obama said "it's the law of the land," but Republicans in Wisconsin aren't convinced, and they're considering backing legislation to arrest federal health officials for implementing Obamacare.
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.
In addition to Kapenga, those listed as supporting the Campaign for Liberty's positions are Sen. Mary Lazich of New Berlin; Reps. Don Pridemore of Hartford; Erik Severson of Star Prairie; Tom Larson of Colfax; Scott Krug of Wisconsin Rapids; and three Republicans elected for the first time last week who will be sworn in early next year - Rob Hutton of Brookfield, Mark Born of Beaver Dam and Dave Murphy of Greenville.
Remember when the GOP was going to moderate? I remember it like it was just yesterday.
Every name on this list of lawmakers who support the bill deserves a scarlet letter for being an insufferable idiot. The Supreme Court upheld Obamacare and federal health officials have every right to establish an insurance exchange in the state of Wisconsin if the state does not establish one itself.
