And now, North Dakota
The Peace Garden state (seriously, look it up) joins the legalistic revolt against the health-care law. Watch as Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem signs the document while simultaneously waving the Gadsden flag ("Don't Tread on Me"):
At some point, you have to say to the Congress, "Enough." They have stepped beyond their authority. ... There is a limit to the spending authority of the Congress, and there may come a point, the court said, where spending power is not unlimited. We’ve passed that limit to the point where it’s become coercive.
Stenehjem is running for reelection; Rep. Earl Pomeroy (D-N.D.), running for reelection, voted for the Affordable Care Act and trails in some polls.
