    Mckenna says he will sue over Health Care Legislation

    God Bless him..........



    McKenna Says He'll Sue Over Health Care Legislation Kitsap Sun

    22 March 2010

    OLYMPIA — Washington state Attorney General Rob McKenna said Monday that he will join a multi-state challenge to the constitutionality of a health care overhaul bill passed by Congress.

    The announcement by McKenna, a Republican, angered Democratic Gov. Chris Gregoire, who said that McKenna did not consult with her, House Speaker Frank Chopp or Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown, all Democrats, before making his decision.

    “I don’t know who he represents,” she said. “He doesn’t represent me.”

    As the chief legal officer for the state, the attorney general typically represents state officials or agencies. However, he is a statewide elected official who, under state law, can bring lawsuits on behalf of the citizens of the state.

    McKenna said he believes the measure passed Sunday night by the House “unconstitutionally imposes new requirements on our state and on its citizens.”

    He will lose and in doing so he will squander the state's budget on a nuisance lawsuit intended to serve his own political ambitions instead of the interests of his constituents. Shame on Rob McKenna.

    That's ironic considering many Democrats voted on expensive money wasting legislation to serve their own political ambitions instead of the interests of their constituents. More power to the man for sticking up for justice and giving the majority of Americans a voice through a legal battle.

    I know you lefties love socialism and communism but somehow to me it does seem right that the government forces and person to have health insurance and if they don't they get fined for not having it.........

    The only winners here will be the lawyers who get rich, charging the states beaucoup bucks for their services.

    Re: Mckenna says he will sue over Health Care Legislation

    Here is why this will be shot down in the Supreme Court:

    Helvering v. Davis, which, in 1937, ruled that the Social Security Act was Constitutional.

    It is a fascinating case. You can read about it here.

    The authority of the Federal government to turn something as repugnant as this health care bill into law is based on settled law, and the Supremes won't touch it. As a matter of fact, they would see this as a frivolous lawsuit. So would the lower courts. Any lawsuit in this area doesn't stand a chance. All you can do now is bend over and take it, while voting to unseat those in Congress who supported it.

    Apparently he ISNT such a top-notch lawyer. Missing something like Helvering v Davis is pretty big and if he plans to basically make himself a legal nuisance until something happens, he should ask Orly Taitz how well that works out.

    I don't agree. Social Security fell under the right to dictate taxes.

    This new socialism bill requires everyone to get health insurance by simply living in the United States. That has never been tried before the Supreme Court.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    No but it's held up in half a dozen states that require car insurance.
