(NaturalNews) At a recent meeting with US state governors in Washington, DC, President Obama made clear his intent to force the individual states to comply with his unconstitutional health care overhaul. Twenty-six states have already filed federal lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of the bill -- and some judges have already declared it to be null and void -- prior to the announcement.

Clearly overstepping his constitutional bounds, Obama chided states for even questioning the bill, despite the fact that it will likely plunge every one of them into irreparable bankruptcy. He also declared a refusal to allow states to "weaken" the bill in any way, even though two federal judges have already ruled it to be unconstitutional (http://www.naturalnews.com/030716_Obamacare_...).

In eerily dictator-style fashion, Obama stated to the governors that they are free to come up with modifications to the bill that will help make it enforceable more quickly, but that any attempts to dismantle it will not be tolerated. Such a proposition, of course, is a gross violation of the law, as a president cannot arbitrarily oppose the will of the judicial branch and demand that unconstitutional provisions be enforced.

The Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution states that the powers not granted to the federal government -- which happen to include issues involving health care and all attempts to mandate that people purchase coverage -- are reserved to the states or to the people. Ironically, this means that the ones who should be lawfully calling the shots in this case are the governors, not Obama.

This gross violation of the law and the arrogant and threatening way it is being played out by the Obama administration perfectly illustrates why the states right now need to reassert their rightful authority over the out-of-control federal government. Obama has no lawful right to demand that the states enforce his unconstitutional bill, which is why groups like The Tenth Amendment Center (http://www.tenthamendmentcenter.com/) are working hard to help states oppose it.
