Skip to comments.First doctors group sue to overturn health care act
Posted on 03/29/2010 1:58:15 PM PDT by paltz
It looks as if it is not just state attorneys general that are filing a lawsuit against the new health care law recently passed by the Democrats and signed into law by President Obama. The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) put out the following statement:
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) became the first medical society to sue to overturn the newly enacted health care bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). AAPS sued Friday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (AAPS v. Sebelius et al.).

Waxman’ll be hauling their azzes on the carpet soon too!
Here is the story -
“Contrary to the claims of some of my critics and some of the editorial pages, I am an ardent believer in the free market.”
-Barack Hussein Obama-
Why the AMA campained for Obamacare is beyond belief.
I’m sure Obama will consider this a credible complaint, he did say “You are the people (doctors) who know this system best. You are the experts. Nobody has more credibility with the American people on this issue than you do.
Oh wait, he must have only been talking to the doctors that agreed with him!
HA HA HA
YEAH...WHAT THEY SAID!!!! ;)
It didn’t say what grounds they were suing on. Obviously, there are many available, but it would be interesting to
know more detail.
Doctors will be harmed immediately. This should get fast tracked.
The constitution doesn't uphold itself - must be a challenge to the law for them to rule. The more that take this on the better.
Is anything happening with any of the State AG lawsuits or private lawsuits that have been filed against 0bozoDeathCare? I was hoping that SCOTUS would have the balls to put this on an expedited schedule, before the taxes & add’l bureaucracies start to kick in and then take on a life of their. Personally I think that secession by 8-10 core Southern & Western states will be needed in order to stand up & stand opposed to 0bozoDeathCare. And hopefully another 8-10 states will then join the secession as well.
I’m looking into the possibility of getting a religious exemption for every prolifer in the country. The exemption language attempts to limit exemptions to a few, specific religious groups, probably because they have a long history (50+ years) of conscientious objection on other issues.
However, showing preference toward one religion to the exclusion of others is a classic case of de facto establishment of a religion, thus invoking an Establishment Clause violation. Standing would be immediate, because taxpayer standing, while denied in almost every other kind of case, is available in the right kind of Establishment Clause case. The exception fits.
Therefore, they can’t restrict it to Amish, Christian Science, etc., but would have to allow anyone with a demonstrable conviction that they cannot fund the murder of the unborn, which this bill certainly can be shown to require.
And if about half the country is prolife, and if we all opt out, the little boat called Obamacare loses all it’s fuel and under its own weight sinks forever out of sight.
Just a thought. And I’m thinking it could be a class action setup. We could get millions of people signed on. It could be the best kind of fun.
Just one court above the DC Circuit Court. SCOTUS.
These docs better be careful...I see IRS audits in their future...I wonder if their organization could be considered a right Wing militia group, afterall they use sharp knives and have access to dangerous gasses in bottles
Are they missing their white coats?
I like this
This group has opposed Obamacare right from the beginning. I wish them success and hope they don’t come under close government scrutiny over this. We have seen what happens to others who get in Obama’s way.
They should refer to it as the Redistribution of Wealth Act. That’s what Dean and Baccus are telling us it is.
from a news story..
The AMA controls the lucrative billing code system. Obama threated to nationalize it. (stupid AMA he will do that anyways)
The AMA wants to protect their golden goose at the expense of patients.
$$$$ in their pockets instead of ours. (BTW less than 20% of practicing physicians in the US are members of AMA. AMA is mainly a medical manual and medical office management publisher now.)
I’ll keep track of those who are interested, and when I get some feedback on the strategy (and assuming it’s a green light) I will start things up (unless somebody else beats me to it - should be a unified front). I’m thinking Facebook would probably be a good way to set up a central intake stream for plaintiffs. I’ll keep you posted.
not just state attorneys general
I think VA AG Ken Cuccinelli has to go throug N VA District (rocket docket) then the Court of Appeals in Richmond then SCOTUS.
RE: “Waxmanll be hauling their azzes on the carpet soon too!”
I suspect that before long there will be so many groups suing that Waxman will need to rent a football stadium to accommodate the hearings.
Great idea. Please keep us posted.
What I read from the article was that this case was being filed in the Circuit court, so next above that is SCOTUS, The Va AG’s case is entirely different.
Are you referring to those “doctors” in the white lab coats? They’re not real doctors, but they did sleep in the Lincoln Bedroom last night.
Court action is necessary to preserve individual liberty and to prevent PPACA from bankrupting the United States generally and Medicare and Social Security specifically, AAPS stated.
The AMA should be soooo ashamed. But they won't be.
THESE docs (the AAPS) know what they're doing and have proven they can take it. I'm encouraged to see them in the game! They're the group that won the release of the names on Hillary's top secret health care task force. I found my RA from my senior year in college on that list. I'd never known she had any interest in health care, although I was one of two seniors on that floor who became physicians.
