    In 2006 one state nullified the REAL ID act and it stopped it right there from being enacted throughout the United States. I wonder how hard will this healthcare bill be to enforce if all 37 states passed their healthcare nullification bills now sitting in state legislatures.

    This could be a very interesting developement.

    If even a quarter of the states refuse the mandates demanded by this bill, much less 37, will this force a Constitutional Convention? Maybe The Big 0 will literally end the Republic.

    A President of consequence(s)?

    37 is a big number in this arena. 38 is even bigger.

    Article V - Amendment Note1 - Note2 - Note3
    The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.

    Indeed. it would create a challange unto the Courts...and i wouldn't put it past the Democrat Statist Prgressives to FORCE the issue.

    *AND* What IF they refused to cotow to the Courts? Could we have a civil war? *I THINK* that's what the Statists are hoping for so they can declare *Marshal Law*...

    Here is what *I* fear as to the question of a Constitutional Convention?

    It's a dangerous premise in the current climate, when there are too many spineless fence sitters, and too many that have NO REGARD for the process.

    So in that veign? I am against such measures. There are too many that could derail it, and we could wind up with something that would turn the Constituton on it's ear...never to recover unless there was bloodshed.

    Healthcare? No. Government takeover of healthcare is a different discussion entirely.
