Cup half full – States suing to stop Obamacare grows to 25

A full half of American states have suits in the hopper to stop the dreaded Obamacare, thanks to the State of Maine.

As The Heritage Foundation writes, “If it is allowed to be implemented, Obamacare will eventually do deep and irreparable harm to our nation’s budget deficit. But while Obamacare is more of a long-term threat to fiscal health at the federal level, it is a clear and present danger to the states. Of the 34 million Americans who gain health insurance through Obamacare, over half (18 million) will receive it through Medicaid.

The majority of Americans don’t want any of the socialist legislation that the Obama Administration has been cramming down their throats: not Obamacare, not amnesty, not cap and trade, not lifting the debt ceiling, not a ban on drilling, not his wife’s nutty food restrictions, and not new taxes. They said so emphatically in the last election, but Obama remains deaf and blind. Does our Healer-in-Chief care that his cup is half-filled with pissed-off voters? No, he’ll put a swizzle stick in it.

If it is allowed to be implemented,Obamacare will eventually do deep and irreparable harm to our nation’s budget deficit. But while Obamacare is more of a long-term threat to fiscal health at the federal level, it is a clear and present danger to the states. Of the 34 million Americans who gain health insurance through Obamacare, over half (18 million) will receive it through Medicaid.

…It is also why the newly elected governors of Ohio, Oklahoma, Maine, and Wisconsin have all decided to sue the Obama administration in hopes of stopping Obamacare. Specifically, Gov. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma has announced that the Sooner State will pursue its own case against the law, while Govs. John Kasich (R) and Scott Walker (R) (of Ohio and Wisconsinrespectively) will add their states to Florida’s multi-state suit. And yesterday, newly sworn-in state Attorney General William Schneider announced Maine would also join the the Florida litigation. That brings the number of states on the Florida suit to 23 and the total number of states suing to stop Obamacare (which includes Virginia and Oklahoma) to 25.

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin says “Kill it” (Obamacare)
