Lawsuits Fly Over Legality of Health Care Bill

by Robert L. Gisel

The controversy over the legality and fundamental rightness of the Heath Care Bill does not not end with its signing by the President. In fact the opposition only mounts as a mound of lawsuits appear to contest it.

Such as this headline:


Obama sued for secret abortion meetings

'In haste to socialize medicine, president violated commitment to transparency'

A legal firebrand whose work fighting corruption left both Bill Clinton and Dick Cheney on the defensive today took on Barack Obama, suing the president for secret meetings with Planned Parenthood and other lobbyists on his plans to nationalize health care.

Larry Klayman

Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and, more recently, Freedom Watch USA, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., under the Federal Advisory Committee Act. The law requires disclosure of records of meetings between the executive branch and outside industry lobbyists. It also requires access to meetings.

And another one:

Revolt by the sovereign states of the Union

As I write this, Virginia is set to file a lawsuit as soon as the usurper in the White House signs these junk bills into "law." The criminal syndicate in Comrade Obama's Politburo and Department of Justice will scoff at the notion that this "law" violates many Amendments: Fifth, Ninth, Tenth. They will try to use their favorite stand by - the commerce clause:

NEW YORK, March 22 (Reuters) - "Virginia's attorney general said he plans to sue the federal government over the healthcare reform legislation, saying Congress lacks authority to force people to buy health insurance."

Other States file suit as well:

BOISE, Idaho — "Idaho took the lead in a growing, nationwide fight against health care overhaul Wednesday when its governor became the first to sign a measure requiring the state attorney general to sue the federal government if residents are forced to buy health insurance."


Florida says several states to file health care lawsuit

MIAMI, March 22 (Reuters) - "Florida's attorney general will file a lawsuit with nine other state attorneys general opposing the health care legislation passed by Congress, a spokeswoman said on Monday.

"The health care reform legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives last night clearly violates the U.S. Constitution and infringes on each state's sovereignty," Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum, a Republican, said in a prepared statement announcing a news conference

"On behalf of the State of Florida and of the Attorneys General from South Carolina, Nebraska, Texas, Utah, Pennsylvania, Washington, North Dakota, South Dakota and Alabama if the President signs this bill into law, we will file a lawsuit to protect the rights and the interests of American citizens."

The Health Care precedent in Massachusetts Obamacare is modeled after was a financial disaster:

Lawsuits like this cost serious money, but the cost of not defeating this junk about to become "law" will be a massive financial disaster. Massachusetts Treasurer Says Obamacare Will Bankrupt Country in 4 Years. This is Mitt Romney Care, the plastic phony positioning himself for another presidential run in 2012. A yes vote by the newly minted fake conservative senator, Scott Brown, helped get it passed. Romney Care has had a devastating impact on Massachusetts:

"The Massachusetts treasurer said Tuesday that Congress will “threaten to wipe out the American economy within four years” if it adopts a health-care overhaul modeled after the Bay State's. Treasurer Timothy P. Cahill – a former Democrat running as an independent for governor – said the local plan enacted in 2006 has succeeded only because of huge subsidies and favorable regulatory changes from the federal government. “Who, exactly, is going to bail out the federal government if this plan goes national?” he asked."

I watched Cahill on FOX the other night explain in detail how disastrous the Romney Care system has been for Massachusetts and then he outlined for ObamaCare. Very articulate and had the numbers to back up his statements. Like I said, the lawsuits will come cheap in the long run.

From a sceptical eye it would seem that the main financial impact of the Bill won't come until after 2014, as that is when most of the Bill is in effect. So Obama will be able to say what a good boy am I for reelection and then will start in earnest to bankrupt the country in his second term, much in the way Bush's second term found the 911 scenario upon us fomenting Human Rights violations of the Homeland Security Bill and two preemptive undeclared wars. One wonders what else he has in mind for us.

Myself, I'm looking for a class action suit I can join in on. Anybody game?
