Republicans in Washington may not like Obamacare but concede it's the law of the land. Not so much in South Carolina, reports U.S. News. There legislation being pushed by state Rep. Bill Chumley (R) would criminalize implementation of President Barack Obama's 2010 health care reform law.
If his bill becomes law, any state official caught enforcing the health care statute would be guilty of a misdemeanor and "must be fined not more than one thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than two years, or both."
And any federal employee or contractor enforcing the law "is guilty of a felony and, upon conviction, must be fined not more than five thousand dollars, or imprisoned not more than five years, or both," the bill proposes.
No matter that the Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Care Act - and with the decisive vote by conservative Chief Justice John Roberts.
Among the items in the health care law that irk Chumley are the individual health insurance mandate, "the establishment of 150 or so more agencies," "the addition of many thousand new IRS agents," and "home visits to come out and see how you're living."
