GOPer Ernst Backed Arresting Feds Over Obamacare In 2012 Survey

State Sen. Joni Ernst, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Iowa, once said she would support legislation that would allow "local law enforcement to arrest federal officials attempting to implement" Obamacare.

Ernst voiced her support for that, as well as supporting legislation that would "nullify" Obamacare in a Iowa State Legislative Candidates survey for Ron Paul's libertarian-aligned Campaign for Liberty in 2012. It can be viewed here.

The question was: "Will you support legislation to nullify ObamaCare and authorize state and local law enforcement to arrest federal officials attempting to implement the unconstitutional health care scheme known as ObamaCare?" Ernst answered that question as "yes."

Campaign for Liberty Communications Director Megan Stiles told TPM on Friday that the "yes" answer is what the group is looking for in candidates. Stiles, however, cautioned that the group does not endorse candidates.

In similar surveys questions were asked about eliminating the Department of Education and other agencies ... this survey is strictly related to state issues in which the federal government might be involved.

Yet, your readers might appreciate the responses on the Minnesota survey.
