In a church pew, faith is divine. But is it any way to run a state? For almost two years, from Gov. C. L. (Butch) Otter on down, it was an article of faith that national health care reform - Obamacare - would be struck down as unconstitutional. So instead of preparing for its implementation in 2014, Idaho's leaders fought it. They resisted it. They ignored it. With the rhetoric of death squads and states rights ringing in their ears, Otter and the GOP rode to victory in the 2010 election. The following year, the Idaho Legislature flirted with the flammable mixture of defiance and anarchy - masquerading under the dubious principle of nullification. Otter danced right up to the edge of violating the U.S. Constitution, then vetoed a watered-down nullification bill and embodied most of its contents in an executive order/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune.

Question: Should the Should Butch Otter and the past to Idaho Legislatures have taken Obamacare more seriously?
