On Wednesday, February 16, the Idaho House became the first state legislative body to pass a measure to nullify the entire ObamaCare law within a state.

As of today, at least one dozen states have already introduced bills to nullify the entire ObamaCare law!

Yesterday the Oklahoma House of Representatives issued a press release, "Ritze Seeks Nullification of ObamaCare," which stated: "State Rep. Mike Ritze has filed legislation to effectively nullify the new federal health care law and allow felony charges against individuals attempting  to enforce it in Oklahoma."

altEveryone is wondering what kinds of legislation will be the focus of the 112th Congress. The shift of power from the Democrats to the Republicans in the House, with the tea parties still highly energized and engaged in the political process, is bound to have some effect.

Choose Freedom — Stop ObamaCare Doctor Tour Begins
The John Birch Society sends three doctors on a speaking tour to kickoff its campaign to repeal or nullify the new healthcare law, allowing patients, doctors to choose a course of care

APPLETON, WIS.—September 23, 2010—The John Birch Society’s “Choose Freedom — Stop ObamaCare!” speaking tour officially begins September 24 in Idaho with a presentation by Dr. Mark E. Baxter.  The tour features three doctors who are passionate about affordable quality healthcare and constitutional, limited government that allows patients and their doctors to choose a course of care.

The tour begins in Idaho and runs through 13 states until the first part of November.

The "Choose Freedom — Stop ObamaCare!" tour is a nationwide speaking tour/media tour of three physicians and JBS President John McManus, sponsored by The John Birch Society.  It is an important part of the Society’s comprehensive campaign that includes billboards, radio and newspaper ads, videos and DVDs, flyers, bumper stickers, ObamaCare repeal and nullification petitions, Internet social network sites, and YouTube, as well as print and online articles.  The campaign aims to educate and enlist more Americans in the efforts to push Congress to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, while at the same time urging state legislatures to stop the federal takeover of medicine and healthcare through the constitutional process of nullification.

The three doctors are Baxter, MD; Frederick Pierce, MD; and J. Michael Ritze, DO, MFSA.  Baxter is a former urgent care and emergency room physician and a Senior Airman Medical Examiner for the Federal Aviation Administration.  He has long had an interest in the effect on medicine that would accompany government control of medical care.

Ritze has a family practice in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and has delivered over 2,000 babies.  He has taught forensic science specifically to law enforcement agencies across Oklahoma for years.  Since 2008, he has served in the Oklahoma House of Representatives.

Pierce spent the better part of his medical career working in the occupational and environmental health fields.  He served 27 years with General Motors and then at clinics in Michigan and Indiana before retiring.

McManus is the President of The John Birch Society, publisher of The New American magazine, publisher of the JBS Bulletin and author of several books.  Before joining the Society’s staff in the 1960s, he served on active duty as a lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps.

JBS CEO Arthur R. Thompson will be a fifth speaker and fill in where needed.  He has read the entire "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" and its reconciliation companion. Through JBS, he is helping lead the effort to overturn the new law and help return the choice of healthcare back to individuals.

The 25-city tour schedule can be found online. The doctors are available for interviews.

Founded in 1958 and headquartered in Appleton, Wisconsin, The John Birch Society is dedicated to restoring and preserving freedom under the U.S. Constitution. Members come from all walks of life and are active throughout the 50 states on local, regional and national issues. United by a strong belief in personal freedom and limited government, members have a strong sense of duty, and their educational efforts have played a continuous and pivotal role in exposing legislation and policies that threaten the independence of our country and the freedom of American citizens.

He also discusses what pundits aren't saying about ObamaCare, plus what a TSA agent told him about the Constitution, which reveals a significant disconnect with those interested in security and those interested in liberty.

There’s a lot of confusion occurring over what’s being nullified by the “Freedom of Choice in Health Care Act” legislation that’s been introduced in over 30 states, and already enacted into law in Virginia, Idaho, Arizona, Georgia, Missouri, and Louisiana. This legislation has been based on model legislation developed by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) back in December 2008, over a year before ObamaCare finally became law.

Here’s a three-minute video clip from Paul’s speech in which he expresses great satisfaction over the rapidly increasing interest in state nullification of federal laws.
