Jobs Bill Forces States to Surrender Sovereignty!

By Alan Caruba

Here’s the truth about Obama’s “jobs bill”.

The Jobs Bill is not about creating jobs, but surrendering States’ Sovereignty.

Under Sec.376, States receiving any Federal funding whether Medicaid, Medicare, Tuition, FEMA, etc. will now surrender its Sovereignty under this new Jobs Bill.

Surrendering Sovereign Immunity allows states to be sued by anyone recognized by the Federal Government.

Interesting that Hilda Solis has been advocating the rights of illegals and now this Jobs plan forces states to yield its sovereignty to be sued. It is also likely Labor Unions could invoke this requirement to supersede Right to Work and force unionization of state agencies and businesses.

Is this a Jobs Bill or a bill to expand Federal power via DOJ, DOL, and others members of the Federal Family?

“SEC. 376. FEDERAL AND STATE IMMUNITY.

(a) Abrogation of State Immunity- A State shall not be immune under the 11th Amendment to the Constitution from a suit brought in a Federal court…”

    There was a time when the Federal governement forced states to go along with them by threating to withhold funds for programs and funds the state needed. The federal government is out of control and it happened because it has become too large and powerful. Our founders warned us over and over that the government is best which governs least.
