H3101 rally and today’s update
Mike Maharrey at the TenthAmendmentCenter.com with a story about yesterday’s rally and today’s events re: H3101:
Hundreds of people rallied at the South Carolina state capitol building yesterday, calling on state lawmakers to nullify the Patient Protection and protestAffordable Care Act.
South Carolina Republican Liberty Caucus secretary Daniel Encarnacion estimated 300 to 400 showed up to demand the state do everything within its power to stop implementation of Obamacare in South Carolina. Others put the crowd at over 500 people.
