Three ministers were among 11 activists arrested for blocking the road to the SC State House entrance March 4, on the day the Senate took up the “Nullify Obamacare” bill, recently amended to the “ACA Anti-Commandeering Act.” The civil disobedience action was the latest in a sustained effort to educate the public about the Affordable Care Act and to shame state lawmakers into expanding Medicaid. Failure to do so will result in as many as 1,400 deaths this year.
