Silly State Tricks

While I certainly appreciate the sentiment, I fear that stunts like this are counter-productive:

"South Carolina state Rep. William Chumley, R-Spartanburg, S.C., has prefiled a bill, H. 3101, that could make trying to implement PPACA in South Carolina a felony punishable by a fine and imprisonment."

Five other states have proposed similar legislation, but enforcement may, problematic.

In this instance, it seems pretty clear that Federal law trumps state (although anyone with actual citations to the contrary is welcome - nay, encouraged - to share them in the comments).

The problem with this strategery is that it sucks needed oxygen from the far more viable efforts to derail the ObamaTax via Fed-run Exchanges. While the intent is certainly praiseworthy, these legal maneuvers are actually counter-productive.
