Here is KrisAnne Hall’s letter to Rick Scott and the Florida Legislature. Feel free to use it to send your own letter to Gov. Scott and your state rep — and if you live in another state, adapt it for your own use. — Andrea
Dear Governor Scott (replace with your Governor):
In the words of John Adams “I am more sick and more ashamed of my countrymen than ever I was before.” You have shook our hands in faith, promising to fight the insidiuous Healthcare Act to the very end, yet you cannot keep your word. Has something changed in this Act to make it more Constitutional? Have we reached “the end” and I just missed it? Where is your integrity, sir? We are commanded to make our yays yay and our nays nay. Perhaps you no longer see the benefit in submitsubmitting to the Word of God.
I understand that Sen. Don Gaetz claims the Healthcare Act is the law of the land. Is our Florida government that ignorant of Constitutional principles? Even Justice Roberts knows that the states have a right to stand against this federal attack on the sovereignty of our state. Or perhaps you have forgotten that he said, “As a practical matter, that means States may now choose to reject the expansion; that is the whole point.”
Even though Justice Roberts gives us his permission to reject this intrusion, we don’t need it. We already have a directive from the founders of this nation to call any legislation that is unconstitutional null and void! Federalist paper #78 explains:
“No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this, would be to affirm, that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves; that men acting by virtue of powers, may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid. “
This Healthcare Act IS unconstitutional. (If you need further explaination please see this analysis: http://www.krisannehall.com/index.php/blog/126-justice-roberts-gives-some-good-advice
You have a duty and obligation to stand against it. But even more so, you gave your word that you would fight. Are you a man of your word or are you just another politician to whom his word means nothing?
Sir, we expect you to keep your word. Sir, we expect you to keep your oath. If you do not, please do not expect to keep your job.
