President Obama just signed the massive healthcare overhaul bill that has allowed government to further decide and impede on personal freedoms. The anti-choice legislation has already sparked a furor across the nation, with neither side of the abortion debate happy with the results. In the states, many governors are deeply concerned about the national mandate included in the bill that will force people to buy health insurance and require states to overhaul already lean budgets so they comply with the law. Over 34 states considering legislation declaring the bill illegal (Virginia and Idaho have already passed such legislation) and 13 states set to sue. Here’s a breakdown of the states that are suing:
- South Carolina
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
Even more states are announcing every minute, with Mississippi’s Democratic Attorney General being told by the Republican Governor, Haley Barbour, that the Governor will file if he doesn’t. Many states are deeply concerned that the states will further imbalance budgets that are already falling too short. Some states have even said the legislation would bankrupt them.
