Is your state on this list?

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.

    What if all fifty states protest this? Will federal law still supercede?

  • Too many BO supporters for all 50 states to fight it. The rest of us will be standing outside their doors,with our hands out...and not receiving anything...just as we are now.

  • These lawsuits are alot of effort on the Republican party to slander and put out lies about the Health Care Reform and Obama. Unfortunately for them, this effort is going to lead to nowhere. Time to stop fighting and embrace the change. Obama is not the devil in disguise, he wants what is best for the American people and in time you will all see that this is for the best.
