We Can Still Stop Obamacare in S.C., but we must act immediately.

Act Immediately- Davis Amendment Becomes a Bill



March 23, 2014: We Can Stop Obamacare in S.C., but we must act immediately.



We have received word from Jesse Graston that even though H3101 was defeated by a parliamentary trick, Representative Chumley has put the exact wording of the Davis Amendment into a House bill to be introduced on Tuesday morning. 



There is an explanation of the corrupt parliamentary trick that was used to stop H3101 at the end of this message.



On Tuesday, Senator Davis will also introduce the Senate bill containing the same language.



We expect to have 40 co-sponsors for the House bill, and it contains the exact language in both the House and Senate.



Many Senators said they supported the Davis Amendment, but could not support H3101 without it.

Let’s give them a chance to do what they promised that they would have done, if the Davis amendments had not been thrown out. 



Let’s Call ALL THE SENATORS now and tell them to



Support  the Davis Bill to be introduced Tuesday, and put it on Special Order



This is a chance to redeem themselves after last week’s betrayal.


Let’s give them a chance to do what they promised that they would have done, if the Davis amendments had not been thrown out. 


also tell them NOT to Support S1077 by Hembree (a do-nothing bill that outlines powers that our state already has- see below)

Let’s call our Representative in the House and urge him/her to


Co-Sponsor Mr. Chumley’s bill with the wording of the Davis Amendment  to protect SC from Obamacare

Let’s call Hembree and tell him not to insult our intelligence – his bill will give us nothing.  We already have the right to do everything it states.





Explanation of the Corrupt Parlimentary Trick Used to Stop H3101:



Obamacare Nulllification Was Defeated in SC Senate by Trickery and Spineless Republicrats
Glenn McConnell gained the office of Lieutenant Governor, without being elected, due to the fact that he was the Senate President Pro Tempore, when the office of Lt. Governor had become vacant, after the resignation of Ken Ard on March 9, 2012.As the unelected Lieutenant Governor, McConnell is less accountable to the voters of SC than any elected Senator. On the evening of March 19th, 2014 during the consideration of H3101, McConnell was acting as the President of the Senate.



Upon the Davis amendment coming up for a vote, a point of order was made by one of the democrats, complaining that the language in the Davis amendment was not germane to the original text of H.3101.  The notion that it wasn’t germane was so ridiculous that none of us were prepared to hear the Lt. Governor Glenn McConnell sustain the point of order, effectively killing the Davis amendment. Because McConnell ruled that the Davis amendment was not germane, the Davis amendment was thrown out, without ever getting a vote.  This amendment would have put teeth back into the amended version of H3101, passed by the House of Representatives, and we were all hopeful that the tremendous work of Senator Davis would be found acceptable, but it was never given a chance.So at about 9 PM on Wed, March 19th, 2014, the Senate voted on H3101.


Below you will see how they voted.


Below you will also see the whiney “explanation” from some of our lily-livered Senators who know they are about to catch it from their constituents.

Having failed to receive the necessary votes, the Bill did not receive a second reading. On motion of Senator COURSON, the Senate stood adjourned.

Here is the statement by




“We supported Senator Davis’ Amendment No. 2 to H.3101 and worked hard to assist him in its adoption. The Davis amendment focused upon anti-commandeering as an exercise of federalism and State sovereignty in accordance with the ninth and tenth amendments, and the holding of the U.S. Supreme Court in Printz v. US. It also carefully eliminated potential unintended negative consequences of the House Bill. However I could not support H.3101 as it passed the House because it did not mitigate unintended consequences as the Davis amendment did, used taxpayer dollars to pay for private fines, and subjected private businesses to suits from the Attorney



Let’s give them a chance to do what they promised that they would have done, if the Davis amendments had not been thrown out. 




If you are looking for a way to succeed, you might find a way to succeed.



If all you are looking for is an excuse for failure, then all that you will find is an excuse for failure.



Apparently there were only nine senators who were looking for a way to succeed. The rest were only looking for an excuse to fail.  



Only nine SC Senators had the courage to honor their OATH to the Constitution.


Democrats were honest about their dereliction to their OATH to the Constitution.


Republicans who violated their OATH to the Constitution hid behind parliamentary trickery to avoid taking a stand to honor their OATH to the Constitution, and also tried to avoid accountability.




Thomas Jefferson said:
“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”
We add this:
“The battle for liberty is never won, and is never lost.
The battle for liberty always continues.
It is never too late, and it is never soon enough, to defend freedom.
No matter how enslaved we are, we always have hope.
No matter how free we are we are never safe.
Any generation that fails to defend freedom will lose it.
The next generation will have to shed blood to gain it back.
When the defense of liberty becomes a crime, tyranny is already in force. At that point failure to defend liberty makes slavery at certainty.” John Perna
