State Rep. Jason Spencer: 'I will identify the Republican Benedict Arnolds' who stopped my anti-ACA bill

Posted By on Tue, Mar 18, 2014 at 9:45 AM

"That eleventh hour betrayal effectively killed the bill, but it could still be brought back to life by an amendment of companion legislation. Tomorrow, I will identify the Republican Benedict Arnolds, the King George the Third and his myrmidons who ship wrecked his path breaking, patriotic bill (HB 707) to prevent the federal Leviathan from commandeering the machinery of state government or resources to enforce ill-conceived federal health insurance mandates. A patriot saves his country from his government. HB 707 would have been the first occasion in a century to draw a constitutional line against state complicity in endless federal encroachments."

In a press conference later this afternoon, State Rep. Jason Spencer, R-Woodbine, promises to call out everyone and anyone responsible for undermining the progress of his legislation that would have stopped state employees, public schools, and state agencies from enforcing the Affordable Care Act or helping with its implementation.
