As previously reported, South Carolina’s bill H3101 will essentially gut Obamacare. State senator Tom Davis (R) believes that not only will the bill pass, it will become model legislation for other states to eliminate Obamacare.
Davis introduced stronger language to the House version of the bill. The bill rejects the federal grants, imposes a thousand dollar penalty for any violation of the act, and applies anti-commandeering to all of Obamacare.
The historic bill has received national attention. Fox News contributor, Judge Andrew Napolitano said South Carolina has the Constitutional right to pass a bill that would essentially gut or eliminate Obamacare.
Despite pressure from lobbyist and special interest groups, South Carolina is leading to way to stop Obamacare through a bill, H3101, entitled “South Carolina Freedom of Health Care Protection Act.” It was passed in the state House of Representatives last April. Now, it’s in the Republican-controlled state Senate. If passed, it could quickly be signed into law by South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
The Chamber of Commerce, however, is fighting tooth and nail to make sure Obamacare stays alive.
State senator Shane Martin (R), sent this message out via Facebook:
The State Chamber of Commerce now supports Obamacare! H.3101 is the bill to stop Obamacare in SC. This is terrible as they are supposed to represent those same businesses that are being harmed by Obamacare! Call the State Chamber and tell them how you feel. Here is the email they just sent all Senators:

Please oppose the potential compromise amendment drafted by Sen. Tom Davis as well as the full nullification bill. It negatively impacts the business community and will hinder economic development.
