Abbott: Texas to challenge health care overhaul

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas will join other states in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of federal health care legislation as soon as President Barack Obama signs the bill, Attorney General Greg Abbott said.

“To protect all Texans’ constitutional rights, preserve the constitutional framework intended by our nation’s founders, and defend our state from further infringement by the federal government, the State of Texas and other states will legally challenge the federal health care legislation,” Abbott said in a written statement late Sunday night after the U.S. House of Representatives approved the measure.

The legislation is headed to Obama to sign, which could happen Tuesday.

“We plan to file the moment Obama signs the bill,” Abbott said in a posting on Facebook. Attorneys general for several other states indicated Monday they would join the lawsuit.

    March twenty first two thousand and ten, A date that will live in infamy, the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by…well you how it goes.

    “No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.”

    So it is written, so shall it be.


    • And, today, March 22nd is the anniversary of the Stamp Act of 1765 which got things rolling here in the Colonies…

      Of course, the Stamp Act was repealed about a year later… Let’s hope that is what happens to Health Care Deform.

      Cheers

    Glad to hear Texas is joining the fray.
    That being said, I still think perry is an asshat.

    I read today that Gov. Jindal has asked the attorney general to join the others in the lawsuit.

    “I fully expect that list to continue growing.”

    I do hope and pray it will, and that they will be successful. The Left has shown it’s true colors, as do those fool enough to continue following them.

  6. CavMom Says:

    I read that Michigan, Colorado, and Idaho have joined in with filing lawsuits. One report stated 36 states have filed, but I cannot find a list or anything to back it up.

  7. CavMom Says:

    Read an article that the Governor of Georgia asked his AG to file, but the AG (a political buddy of the O-man) declined for state financial reasons.
