Modern Day Intolerable Acts

March 22, 2010

The Heritage Foundation responds to the health care vote. They say it better (and with less cussing) than I could:

As for the States filing suit? YES.

South Carolina, where I live, has already committed to doing so. Our Attorney General, Henry McMaster, released a statement on Friday and again tonight.

After the U.S. House’s historic vote Sunday night passing the health care reform bill, South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster issued the following statement:

“The health care legislation Congress passed tonight is an assault against the Constitution of the United States. It contains various provisions and federal mandates that are clearly unconstitutional and must not be allowed to stand.

A legal challenge by the States appears to be the only hope of protecting the American people from this unprecedented attack on our system of government.

Michelle Malkin has a list of all other States who have started, or who are about to start, the process.

Make phone calls to your AG offices. Get this ball rolling.

    I live in Virginia, and Ken Cucinelli (good Catholic man, Fourth Degree Knight of Columbus, homeschool dad, and all-around friendly guy who worked hard in the VA Leg. branch to get our “Choose Life” plates) has already said that he’s ready to file suit as soon as the president signs the bill.

    Have I mentioned I like Ken? Met him at a K of C function for the state last year when he was running for AG here in Virginia.

    There is one little positive for me here in my Democrat-represented district. My Rep. actually listened to me and voted no. It’s like a Christmas miracle. (He voted no on the first one, too, BTW. Not sure WHEN he voted on each and if it was a matter of political CYA or not…)

    And this man is not motivated by “ideology”? Give me a break. He is from planet earth like the rest of us. He talks about freedom, liberty, basic rights, states rights blah, blah, blah.

    And, yet what does the Heritage Foundation pursue with the Republican party, federal control of state tort laws. A basic right of states to manage their own tort laws. They want to place a cap on many awards thereby making it more difficult for the common man to get his day in court.

    The problem of this society is that of our egos, our ideology. We have to be right rather then honest.

    You can not get an honest debate from anywhere these days and people are afraid of having their ideologies/egos challenged with honest debate.

    Michelle lists Oklahoma. Living here, I am doubtful. Our AG is a democrat who is running for governor against Rep. Mary Fallon (R). He will find it very difficult to go against his party. If anything, OK may join at a later day or file an amicus brief. I just don’t think our AG will want to stick his neck out during his political campaigning.
