I’ve mentioned Richard Mack here a few times. He’s the founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association and he thinks that the federal government has no authority over sheriffs or governors. He also thinks Obamacare is a Nazi plot to turn America into a communist hellhole. Which explains why he doesn’t have health insurance.
Former Arizona county sheriff Richard Mack, a fierce opponent of Obamacare and a leader in the “constitutional sheriff” movement, is struggling to pay his medical bills after he and his wife each faced serious illnesses. The former sheriff and his wife do not have health insurance and started a GoFundMe campaign to solicit donations from family and friends to cover the costs of their medical care.
“Because they are self-employed, they have no medical insurance and are in desperate need of our assistance,” reads a note on Mack’s personal website.
Mack, the founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, suffered a heart attack in January and is in recovery. His wife fell ill late last year. Mack is on the board of Oath Keepers, a right-wing fringe group made up of police and military veterans, and is known for supporting Cliven Bundy in his standoff against the federal government. He is also an ardent opponent of Obamacare.
“The States do not have to take or support or pay for Obamacare or anything else from Washington DC. The States are not subject to federal direction,” he wrote on his website, outlining how state governments can block President Obama.
But he refuses to get health insurance, probably with subsidies to keep the cost low, because then he’ll be forced to goosestep all the way to the doctor’s office and ship his kids off to FEMA concentration camps, or whatever bizarre fantasy he has cooked up in his mind.
