March 19, 2010 - The Governor of Idaho has just signed a measure that requires his Attorney General to sue the federal government if ObamaCare is signed into law.
Governor C.L. Otter is the first state chief executive to sign such a measure in response to the impending takeover of our health care system by the Obamunists.
The Idaho response expresses outrage at ObamaCare's provision of requiring all Americans to purchase health insurance. This is considered an illegitimate mandate that will impact every state in the union.
The Idaho measure says the citizens of Idaho won't be subject to this government mandate and refuse to turn another part of their lives over to the central government in Washington.
The Attorney General of Virginia, Kenneth Cuccinelli has also warned Speaker Pelosi against ramming through ObamaCare without a direct vote on the legislation.
The Virginia General Assembly has voted to ban any federal mandates on purchasing insurance.
Currently, Speaker Pelosi is working with House Rules Committee Chairwoman Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) to impose nationalized health care on all Americans without even voting on the bill. Her gimmick is to "deem" the Senate bill passed instead of a full vote in the House.
There are at least 34 states planning on rejecting ObamaCare health insurance mandates, according to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
In addition, the Landmark Legal Foundation is preparing a lawsuit against the unconstitutionality of ObamaCare if it is signed into law.
Landmark President Mark Levin has noted: "Landmark has already prepared a lawsuit that will be filed in federal court the moment the House acts. Such a brazen violation of the core functions of Congress simply cannot be ignored. Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution is clear respecting the manner in which a bill becomes law. Members are required to vote on this bill, not claim they did when they didn't. The Speaker of the House and her lieutenants are temporary custodians of congressional authority. They are not empowered to do permanent violence to our Constitution."
"The passage of ObamaCare will be a political disaster for the Democrats in November," said TVC Executive Director Andrea Lafferty. "The legislation will eventually be overturned as unconstitutional, but come November, ObamaCare will become Obamacide for Democrats. They will have managed to bungle health care reform - and will effectively fire themselves in the upcoming election."
TAKE ACTION: ObamaCare must be defeated. Let your Senators and Representatives know you oppose any nationalized health care plan!
