Can the States Nullify Health Care Reform? | Health Care Reform Center

These resistance efforts are not about law — they are about politics. But of course at this point, health care reform is only about politics, except insofar as it is still about the morality of equal treatment for all.

I am not a constitutional lawyer, but I believe that states have the right to determine how to care for, educate, tax their constituents… pls correct me if I am wrong. While VA’s republican majority gov’t has put this bill forward, it did have significant Democratic support. As far as I know, this is the only reform legislation that can claim that…sad as it is.
