“After years of rhetoric and rulings out of Washington, D.C., reality is hitting home as Minnesota counties scramble to implement and pay for what one frustrated county board leader calls the “not so Affordable Care Act” for local property taxpayers.
“Locally, we are just beginning to fully realize how unaffordable the Affordable Care Act will be to carry out, specifically the publicly-funded medical assistance (Medicaid) portion of this law,” said Rhonda Sivarajah, chair of the Anoka County Board, in a recent op-ed. “After years of identifying efficiencies, streamlining services and reducing the county levy, we will now be hit with unfunded costs estimated to be as much as $1.4 million over the next three years to pay for the additional staff and overtime needed to administer the “Affordable” Care Act.” (Watchdog.org, 05/01/13)

PUSH BACK! Kansas, Missouri respond to Eric Holder Threat
Not backing down. Will Texas join them on Saturday too?
In response to Eric Holder’s threat against Kansas for its new gun control nullification bill, there have already been two official responses from Kansas. Plus the Missouri legislature provided some needed backup too.
1. Kansas Secretary of State Kobach responds, draws a line in the sand.
“With respect to his concern that federal officials be allowed to enforce federal laws, Mr. Holder’s statement is a curious one. He was evidently not concerned that ATFE officials be allowed to enforce federal law when his agency oversaw the “fast and furious” operation to walk guns into the hands of Mexican cartels.”

2. Kansas Governor Sam Brownback responds, not backing down
Thanks Holder for his opinion, asserts the authority of the people. ”The people of Kansas have clearly expressed their sovereign will.”

3. Missouri legislature backs them up. A day after Holder’s threat, the Missouri Senate passed their version of the 2nd amendment Preservation Act by a veto-proof majority – effectively thumbing their nose at the AG.

4. Will Texas join in? On Saturday, the Texas House will vote on HB928, a bill that would make most federal gun control measures “nearly impossible to enforce.”
