The senate majority fight has claimed most of the news stories this week, rightly.
Less talked about is the new level of Republican control at a State level. 23 States now have the Governorships and both chambers in Republican
control. Many other states have a larger republican influence as well.
As the prerequisite 'finding common ground' rhetoric is over, Obama's reassertion of an E.O. on immigration and responses of defunding any such
E.O. in response by Republicans shows the muskets are being loaded, lines in the sand drawn and super gridlock is likely..
Does this open the door for unilateral action by States to nullify/block/abandon Federal programs and laws?
Some states have disassociated from common core, Obamacare and outright nullification of Federal gun control laws before this election cycle.
With control of both house in Republican hands is the door open for individual states to ramp up nullification and other acts knowing they will be
backed/support by congress?
Is this a potential tactic that could break a Federal gridlock and lessen federal controls over individual state rights issues?
Would any Obama retaliatory move be blocked by Congress?
I'm largely shooting in the dark on this one so any feedback would be appreciated..
