States mull ‘nuclear option’ on healthcare—Nullification

As Constitution Day nears, states mull options to limit Washington, including nullificationTHE US REPORT

A columnist at The Tenth Amendment Center said the states have a 'nuclear option' on healthcare—nullification.*

The Tenth Amendment Center is calling attention to September 17 because on that day in 1787, members of the Constitutional Convention signed the draft of the document that is the keystone for liberty. As Congress attempts to expand the powers of the federal government to historic levels, the Center's founder Michael Boldin said in a news release, "This year seven states have passed sovereignty resolutions under the 10th amendment to the Constitution of the United States." 

* Thomas Jefferson and James Madison argued that the states are the ultimate interpreters of the Constitution and can "interpose" to protect state citizens from the operation of unconstitutional national laws.
