Virginia Approves Legislation to Block Obamacare

On Wednesday the state of Virginia Legislature passed legislation to block Obamacare from being implemented in that state if it passes.

The law passed with bipartisan support with no debate in a state that Obama carried easily in the race for the Presidency. And, 

"thirty-four other state legislatures have either filed or proposed similar measures _ statutes or constitutional amendments _ rejecting health insurance mandates, according to the American Legislative Exchange Council."

This goes right along with those recent elections in Virginia, Massachusetts, and elsewhere in which Democrats lost to Republicans. Democrats and Republicans Congresses and in the general public do not want universal health care to pass.

This pits the 10th Amendment against the Supremacy Clause, so expect to see a ruling by the Supreme Court if Obamacare passes.
