States opposing health-care legislation
As President Obama prepares to sign the health-care bill into law, Republican legislators in more than three dozen states are seeking to challenge U.S. government authority. They contend that the bill will infringe on state sovereignty and individual freedoms. Many constitutional scholars are skeptical of the challenges: They say federal law and precedents are clear.
That is more than half the country already! How could this continue with nearly the whole country fighting this??

Yes, my state is on there, it surprised me. This may be true, federal law supersedes state law, however from what I understand the constitution is suppose to supersede federal law. Which the health care plan is un-constitutional. And that is the grounds they are going on.

Federal laws don't always supersede state laws. There are many federal laws that the individual states do not enforce.

good luck with the battle, federal law superscedes state law
What if all fifty states protest this? Will federal law still supercede?
