Sen. Curt McKenzie, R-Nampa, debating for a second time against SB 1042, read at length from “The Gulag Archipelago” by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn about resistance. “That speaks volumes to me,” he said.
Next up to debate for a second time is Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll, R-Cottonwood. “I know that we all agree that Obamacre … is an extremely unjust law,” she said. “We are setting up actually a national health insurance. We're setting up socialized medicine. This is the most important vote that I think I will ever make.”
Nuxoll asked, “Well, are we a state or not? Do we want our businesses running to other states because we’re setting up this exchange and they want to avoid all the regulations and all the penalties?”
