The litigation strategy should be to sue the hell out of the Feds and make Obama regret the day he tried to mess with Texas.

This would certainly determine where I move. I am disgusted at the cowards and angry communists I have seen today in Washington. TeaPartiers should be very proud of what has been accomplished. Thank you for going to Washington and fighting the good fight. I made my calls and they heard from me.

I saw the Attorney General of Florida on Fox. He “promises” to have a lawsuit filed within one hour of the President’s signing of this bill. He also said that Arizona’s governor will be joining the suit, since that state’s AG is a Dem. I understand that Virginia and Idaho have already passed state laws nullifying this bill. I’m sure many states will be joining this suit.

I guarantee flaming socialist Connecticut AG Richard Blumenthal, who is running as the RAT US Senate candidate, will not do anything to thwart the Unconstitutional, socialist health care BS.

37 or 38 state legislatures are trying to pass laws to protect their citizens from obamacare...And 2 or 3 state Attorney Generals say they will file suit if the HCR bill passes, that’s FL, VA, and -????Can’t remember the 3rd one. If anyone knows differently, let me know, but I believe the AG actions are separate/in addition to the state legislature actions. Be nice if at least 40 states try to opt out, and 40 AGs file suits. I believe both VA and FL say they will file their suits the day after the HCB passes.

MO passed a bill in the house, I assume it will go to the senate after the HCR bill passes Congress. Then it will have to pass by a veto-proof margin as our governor is untrustworthy-or if he does veto it, they better re pass it over his veto.

So far two VA and Idaho have laws on the books making obama illegal for their states - another 35 or so are in various states of progress

Not sure how many states will join this suit - should be all but a handful

I'm proud of our fellow Americans. Even though this passed, we still dragged it out for a year and even with large Dem majorities it still had to come down to the wire.

Here in WI we have a fine Republican AG who no doubt will make a move on this, and the Republicans running for Governor both said they will nullify Obamacare.

Please God tell that's true. If not I will be moving to a state that believes in true freedom.

Christie might just go for it though. He is really kicking ass and taking names here.

This would certainly determine where I move.

Before leaving Forgottenland, remember that packing yourselves into a few states reduces your influence in Congress. Fight is needed nationwide; it makes a difference in the unlikeliest places sometimes.

“and I also saw something that 38 states could do a Constitutional amendment”

Definitely a bad idea to do that with the politicians we have ‘representing’ us right now.

Maybe it’s time to look at supporting Republican state AGs across the country this fall, such as in CT: http://blogs.courant.com/capitol_watch/2010/02/gops-john-pavia-gathering-supp.html

Last count I heard was 37. Stated on the house floor last night a quote from TX AG. “Texas stands ready to lead the way.”

Facebook post:

Greg Abbott: We are fully engaged in the legal challenge to the healthcare bill. On Thursday we had a strategy call with other AGs, and today we briefed Texas congressional members who share our concerns with this bill. Texas will be undoubtedly challenge this constitutionally questionable law—it’s just a question of whether to fi...le our own lawsuit or join a multistate effort.

If we can confine the folks from CA to the Austin area until their conservative bonafides are reviewed, then nothing would change. ;-)

That is a very good point. And we should know too, what governorships are up this fall. SOS’s are going to be CRICIAL from here on out, we need good republican govs to appt them. Soros is trying to take them to be re-educated in Marxism, and teach them how to “count” votes.
