Tea Party Boise Backs Nullification

Item: Tea Party Boise backs nullification, aims for 1,000 to show for Feb. 7 hearing/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman

More Info: Idaho's most active tea party group is urging members to help bring a crowd of at least 1,000 to next week's hearing on House Bill 59, which seeks to allow Idaho to deem federal laws null and void, including last year's health care law. "This is the line in the sand," says a notice from Tea Party Boise. "On one side is federal tyranny — on the other side is freedom. What do you choose? If it is freedom — then be at the Capital (sic) on Feb. 7th."

Question: What effect does the two rulings against 2010 health care reform have on Idaho's attempt to nullify the federal law on the state level?
