So some WI lawmakers think it's a good idea to arrest people implementing the law of the land. I thought this was the most interesting part:
Governor Scott Walker (R) has until Friday to decide whether to implement a state healthcare exchange or leave implementation of the ACA to the Obama administration.
The mandate, which requires individuals to buy health care coverage or risk fines, effective 2014, was upheld by the Supreme Court in June. Despite that fact, Kapenga insisted it was unconstitutional.
“Just because Obama was re-elected does not mean he’s above the constitution,” he told the newspaper.
Yeah, and just because you won re-election does not mean you are, either, or above the law.
As I've said before, the fact remains that a duly-elected Congress passed a law they deemed constitutional, the duly-elected President signed that law he deemed constitutional, the Supreme Court upheld the same law they deemed constitutional, and the People--including a majority of WI voters--clearly deemed the law constitutional when they re-elected the architect of the law and returned a Congress that will be unable to repeal it. So go ahead, punk, make my day.
