Obama Signs Healthcare Reform Mandate

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:

  • Virginia
  • Florida
  • Texas
  • South Carolina
  • Idaho
  • Alabama
  • Nebraska
  • North Dakota
  • Pennsylvania
  • South Dakota
  • Utah
  • Washington
  • Colorado

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.

RMC and RRM are continuing to update our members as news develops. Stay tuned to our Twitter and Facebook as we keep announcing new states joining the lawsuit.

    Watch the grammar in writing this stuff. Reflexive pronouns are misused, and sentences would read better if you did not put adverbs in middle of verb structures. If we want to look smart, grammar should be good.

    Perhaps the best response to this latest intrusion in our lives, our personal choices and our purses is a sage reflection from our noble and wiser past…

    “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government — lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

    Patrick Henry
