NEW BILL REQUIRES STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL TO SUE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IF HEALTH CARE “REFORM” IS IMPLEMENTED
by Sharon Rondeau
(Mar. 19, 2010) — Idaho’s governor C. L. Otter has signed a bill which nullifies any health care legislation passed by Congress and requires that state’s attorney general to file a lawsuit against the federal government if such legislation were to be imposed.
The Idaho Health Freedom Act is the second bill of its type, following on the heels of a similar bill passed in Virginia on March 5. That state’s attorney general has said that he will sue the federal government if a health care “reform” bill is passed by the U.S. Congress.
According to Governor Otter, the Idaho Health Freedom Act will ensure “that the citizens of our state won’t be subject to another federal mandate or turn over another part of their life to government control.”
According to The Idaho Statesman, “State lawmakers opted for a bill rather than a resolution to give the measure greater weight and to help Idaho’s standing in court” if a federal mandate to buy insurance becomes law.
A total of 36 states are considering or currently taking action on health care “freedom” proposals. The Missouri House of Representatives recently passed HJR48, which “proposes a constitutional amendment prohibiting any person, employer, or health care provider from being compelled to participate in any health care system.”
