    Is that even legal. If they did pass it, wouldn't the federal law over rule the state law?

    Federal law only overrules state laws if the federal government has the constitutional authority to enact said law. Since universal healthcare does not fall under the federal government's jurisdiction per the Constitution every state has the right to nullify the universal healthcare.

    However, the Ohio Senate is controlled by the Republicans, so it is likely to get through there. He's not obstructing, he's simply expressing Ohio's sovereignty over the issue of healthcare.

    Thats good for Ohio. I think any kind of govt backed healthcare should be on a state/local level and not a federal one. You have more of a chance to give feedback and interact with your state govt than you ever will with the senate or house.

    KevinKennedy knows as much about the Constitution, its history, and American culture as much as he does about poppy growing in Afghanawildstan.

    Yes, the Supremes would overturn any such state or congressional legislation, and have the bailiffs turn KK's butt out into the alley.

    Let's move on.

    Wow for a liberal you sure are intolerant of a fairly reasonable view that differs from your own. When did the liberal democrats become the representatives of intolerance?
