From Texas GOP Vote, about the conservative Republican politician: "According to 1200 WOAI News, State Representative James White (R-Lufkin) has introduced a Constitutional Amendment which would prohibit any Texas official, or any federal official operating in Texas, from taking any steps whatsoever to punish any Texas resident for refusing to purchase health insurance. 'We don't think another bloated federal plan is going to be the solution,' White told 1200 WOAI news."
The article continues about his proposed bill: "This bill has many hurdles to clear, but if this bill passes the Texas House of Representatives and the Texas Senate, it will be put on the ballot for all the residents of Texas to vote on. If the residents of Texas vote to approve, the Texas State Constitution would be amended to invalidate the individual mandate of Obamacare. Yes, it would of course face a United States Supreme Court challenge, but that does not scare Rep. White."
