Indiana Joins Health Care Reform Lawsuit

InsideINdianaBusiness.com Report

Attorney General Greg Zoeller says Indiana is joining at least 13 other states in a legal challenge to the new federal health care law. He says it is in the best interests of all to raise constitutional questions about the reform package to the United State Supreme Court. Many of Zoeller's concerns are in a 55 page report on the changes, put together at the request of U.S. Senator Richard Lugar. . . . (more)

That would take legal type freepers. I could read tons of suits all day long and would never know a good one from a bad one. Plus I’d go into a coma probably after an hour or two.

Thanks for keeping us up on this.

I’d love to see fifty states taking the federal government on, but even sixteen is quite impressive.

California stands to lose big-time on this, but Jerry Brown is our AG. He’s not going to buck Il Douche’.

A Constitutional convention would be an opportunity for the LEFT to cause all forms of mayhem with insane proposals and by inserting versions of social engineering into the Constitution and lastly is unnecessary. Lastly, I am very suspicious from where calls for Constitutional conventions are ORIGINATING. The Constitution is NOT a "living document".

Constitutional lawsuits will suffice to kill Obamacare if the supportive arguments are clear and the documentation is not shoddy. See post # 17.

The SC Lt. Gov was just on Greta and he is starting the ball rolling to try and get a constitutional convention with the sole purpose of killing Obamacare.

National constitutional convention? I think he may be jumping the gun a little but the saber rattling can't hurt. ;^)

We conservatives have GOT to keep banging the drum LOUDLY for putting the feral government back in its cage. It not only gives us the feeling we're accomplishing something, it gives the States cover to go to battle on our behalf. It should be obvious by now that DC could care less what We The People want. The States making demands on the other hand are a different matter altogether...

I just reported the facts from what he stated on the program... he said it would be for the sole purpose of Obamacare and nothing else.

LOL ! I hear ya.

None-the-less, America very much needs an army of watch-dogs to keep a very close eye on these lawyers to ensure they are not pulling a fast one on us. We've been bamboozled so many times in past by lawmakers and their lawyers supposedly working on our behalf.

The old saw rings truer than ever;

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

So its important that we have as many sets of eyes on these suits as possible.

You're welcome. A small gesture but a labor of love for my country I assure you.

I’d love to see fifty states taking the federal government on, but even sixteen is quite impressive.

Just so! I suspect there may be several more before the dust settles. Any noise we conservatives can make at this point I hope would give some wobbly States additional backbone.

California stands to lose big-time on this, but Jerry Brown is our AG. He’s not going to buck Il Douche’.

I saw moonbeam being interviewed a day or two ago on the subject. He hasn't a clue. His ONLY prayer at this point is his reliance on the current resident of the White House bailing his and his Sacramento commies' sorry A$$E$ out. Pardon my French...

They will (the left), but that is what happens when one party tries to overreach. I don't think it will go very far (yet) but Obama and the Democrats are not finished. This is a very scary thing they are doing and there is absolutely no telling what the unintended consequences will be from all of this.

What happens when we get to 25 states, much less 40+ or all 57?

I agree, and I hope smart freepers can post the Dummies’ Version for the likes of me.

When is Ohio going to stand up for her citizens?

Never with the Dems in charge.

We have to CHANGE that!

Let it be noted, relevant to your list, that Rob McKenna, the AG for the state of Washington intends to file on his own volition and his decision to do so is being hotly contested by lady Guv, Christine Gregoire (better known as “Fraudoire” to non-supporters in her state).

The whizzing match has only just begun to get interesting; I imagine the same may occur in a few other states.

The sad thing is, it is quite simple to join in once the decision has been filed. I am a lawyer and we call it the “me too” brief. I basically wait for a really smart lawyer to spend a ton of time writing a brief requesting the same relief that I am seeking. I then write “For all the reasons set forth in Ms. X’s brief, I hereby join in her request.”

Is that something that we, as individuals, could do?

Yeah, I'd heard he was catching holy hell from the barking moonbats. Steppin' out there ain't he??? A man of some substance it would seem.
