I wouldn't be surprised if they could; federal will always trump state.  We tried the other way around, it ended rather...messily.

Except that if it doesn't fall under one of the enumerated powers, they can't do it, period.

Interstate commerce clause.
I operate under Crocker's rules. Feel free to be mean to me, if it'll help us communicate more effectively.

Interstate commerce clause.

As expansively as that has been interpreted, it might still not be broad enough to keep states from enacting right-to-work laws affecting businesses operating only in that state, which would still mean the US has, as a whole, lower labour standards than Canada.

What I could see working is Congress's using its spending power to penalize states that have enacted right-to-work laws.

While Trump and the Republicans fuck up trying to fuck over Americans, Bernie and 16 other Democratic Senators are introducing Medicare For All. (Notable by his absence: Sherrod Brown.)

EDIT: Considering that among the co-sponsors are Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Kirsten Gillibrand, it seems that 2020 Democratic Presidential hopefuls are understanding that they either must at least pay lip service to supporting single-payer or they will not win the nomination.

The world may run out of popcorn after this.

Quote
Trump, in his series of tweets Thursday, did not deny reports that he would support a deal on DACA that didn't include the wall.

And, in brief comments to reporters later Thursday, Trump said "the wall will come later."

Best tweet in response?

No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Well, in "In Trump We Trust" Coulter did say that the one thing that could turn her against Trump was for him to backpedal on immigration reform.

Former Trump fans are burning their red trucker hats over fear he'll be nice to (some) immigrants.

I don't know what's funnier, the fact that those things are so cheap and nasty or how much the tanty throwing trumpkins suck at setting them on fire.

Under this version of Trumpcare, as soon as you get sick, the insurance companies can raise your rates!
