Six more states join FL health care lawsuit against feds

by Dara Kam | January 18th, 2011

Six more states have joined Florida’s legal challenge to the federal health care law now awaiting a Pensacola federal judge’s preliminary ruling.

Iowa, Ohio, Kansas, Wyoming, Wisconsin and Maine are now among the 26 states, including Florida, challenging the constitutionality of the federal health care law. Virginia has filed a separate lawsuit and Oklahoma is considering its own as well.

Attorney General Pam Bondi filed the papers in Pensacola to add the six states to the lawsuit initiated by her predecessor Bill McCollum.

Meanwhile, the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives are debating a bill that would repeal the law. That measure is expected to go nowhere in the U.S. Senate, where Democrats still have the upper hand.

  1. Dems are whiners Says:

    Maine? Really? This has gotta upset Senators Snowe and Collins since both of these traitors pushed it into law. Good for these states joining the lawsuit of this illegal bill.

  2. Susanna Says:

    That headline kind of reminds me of the old saying “If so and so jumped off a cliff, would jump off too?” Not sure that six other states joining Florida makes the action legit.

  3. Alistair Says:

    Pam Bondi continues her one-hit wonder tour. She’s a disgrace to the state I love, almost as much as Governor Criminal Mastermind himself.

  4. Peter Says:

    Congrats to Ohio joining the ranks on this issue. This Health Care Law is unconstitutional, I signed up to serve a democracy, not socialism. You get what you earn, not have things handed out to you.
