Broden has made repeal of ObamaCare a centerpoint of his campaign, though that fact alone doesn’t distinguish him from many establishment Republicans. That establishment Republicans would also oppose Obama’s healthcare legislation should be no surprise, as polling data and Washington, D.C. talking points from the Republican National Committee have created a chorus that emulates the Tea Party grass roots. But Broden goes much deeper than the superficial Republican Party talking points, frequenting “Nullify Now” events at campaign stops and declaring categorically in an interview with�The New American�that “government has no constitutional right to be involved in healthcare.”

Broden told The New American that “I believe the Constitution is the means by which we can direct this country away from a socialist paradigm.” Part of what the government should be doing under the U.S. Constitution is “enforcing Article IV, Section IV of the U.S. Constitution” by protecting states from invasion and securing the borders from illegal immigration. Broden says that “I believe in less government,” but adds that securing the borders is “not more government; it’s [the government] fulfilling its duty under the Constitution.”
