Half Of All States Now Suing Over Obamacare

Before the elections, 21 states were suing the federal government either on their own or as part of a multi-state case over the implementation of Obamacare. In Maine, Oklahoma, Ohio and Wisconsin new governors were elected, and those governors have decided to add their states to litigious ranks as well.

…the newly elected governors of Ohio, Oklahoma, Maine, and Wisconsin have all decided to sue the Obama administration in hopes of stopping Obamacare. Specifically, Gov. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma has announced that the Sooner State will pursue its own case against the law, while Govs. John Kasich (R) and Scott Walker (R) (of Ohio and Wisconsin respectively) will add their states to Florida’s multi-state suit. And yesterday, newly sworn-in state Attorney General William Schneider announced Maine would also join the the Florida litigation. That brings the number of states on the Florida suit to 23 and the total number of states suing to stop Obamacare (which includes Virginia and Oklahoma) to 25.

Poll after poll has shown majority opposition to Obamacare, and now we’re near a simple majority of state government’s that are opposed to the federal legislation as well.

At what point can we just admit that the people do not want Obamacare? Or does the will of the people truly not matter any more?

    I believe the individual mandate will be struck down by the SCOTUS anyway. Without that it will all fall apart. But it good to see more states waking up to this insanity.

    This day of action is just part of JVP’s ongoing campaign to target TIAA-CREF. In July, activists attended the shareholder meeting and presented an “overwhelming” amount of signatures they had gathered in support of TIAA-CREF’s divestment from companies that profit from Israeli occupation policies.

    Lenins useful idiots accomplishing thru cultural terrorism what the Constitution would not allow.
    The state running facist over its people in the name of health care for all. This pattern is not “greek” to me as I have seen it used lately in alot of my reading and search for factual history. Wether the common purse to ensure health care duped to allow facism, or the common purse to allow terrorism in the actual physical realm as the above story and lind show evidence, the fact is “EVIL” unites under “cause” and in the “name of” something shown to be for good, while in fact it accomplishes something 180 out and is evil. Propaganda specialists wagging the populace..
    God Bless

    Meanwhile, the Palestinian-led movement of boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israeli human rights violations and apartheid policies continues to gather steam elsewhere around the world.

    We stop obamacare via an unconstitutional ruling and I think we may open up a can of whoop-a$$ (a$$=democrat icon). I’m hoping it goes all the way to SCOTUS and this “interstate trade” distortion gets reigned in.

    Obama is thinking how would he handle all the fans of Justin Bieber because Bieber is now more popular than him.

  • Mark

    the new legistature must simply repeal obamacare
    or do you citizens want to feel warm and fuzzy thinking the court cases will stop this stupidity
    all the states suing over this is worse than a bad divorce…only the attorneys will win
    tax payers loose
    wake up

    When the count reaches 37 (3/4th) of the states, that is when the fun begins. They call a constitutional convention and explicitly spell out what the Constitution means. Without the spin from the leftists.

    Good news, not that it will be paid attention to by the MSM and the left. It does not matter what the plebes want, our masters know what’s best for us.
