Indiana Attorney General to Join Lawsuit against Obamacare health care reform

Alright, go Greg Zoeller.  Indiana decided to join 13 other states (possibly more to come) in a lawsuit against the federal government challenging the national healthcare reform law. It’s cheaper by the dozen so this means that the cost to the State to pursue this suit will be split between the 13 others. Whatever money does get spent you can blame Pete Visclosky. He is the one who brought this monster to our doorstep. I doubt that any legal fees between 14 states will come close to the $11 million Pete Visclosky took from Indiana, right out of the gate for just one line item in the massive 3000 page healthcare law.

The time is now to remove these non-representatives. Help elect Rob Pastore in the May 4th primary.

What most people do not realize is that the Founding Fathers NEVER intended for the federal government to grow to have the powers it currently has given itself. The states were to have the power and the feds were to be a sidebar deal with little to no impact on what happens to the citizens of any state.

The federal government is mandating you to buy health insurance or else you will be fined . How’s the Hopey Changey thingie working for you now? Those 16, 500 additional IRS agents will be sure to pick your pocket in a nanosecond  What’s next? Use your imagination, the Feds are.

INDIANAPOLIS | Indiana will join a multistate lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the recently approved national health reform law.

Attorney General Greg Zoeller said Monday the state will sign on to a court case filed last week by 13 other states that claims Congress exceed its authority by creating an individual mandate to purchase health insurance.

“This is an insurance product that everybody, as a condition of being a citizen of the United States, will be required to purchase under the threat of penalties,” Zoeller said. “This is the first time the federal government has required people to purchase a commercial good.”

The Republican attorney general said it’s in the best interests of all Americans that the Supreme Court determine whether Congress has the power to impose such a mandate.

“This is such a large program that’s almost unprecedented that everyone’s going to need to know the answer whether this is constitutional or not,” Zoeller said.

With Zoeller now on board, 13 of the 14 state attorneys general suing to stop health care reform are Republicans. The new law was a legislative priority for President Barack Obama, a Democrat, and won congressional approval without a single Republican vote.

Zoeller said that while he believes the law was enacted through a fiercely political process, his motivation for acting has nothing to do with politics.

“I’ll stand by the proposition that when the sovereignty of our state government is in question, I think it’s really a responsibility to raise the challenge,” Zoeller said.

Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels said last week he encouraged Zoeller to join the lawsuit. The attorney general’s office also received some 7,000 e-mail messages, 100 phone calls and more than a dozen letters supporting a court challenge.

By joining with other states in the lawsuit, Indiana will be able to save money compared to the cost of filing its own challenge to the health reform law, Zoeller said.

He wouldn’t estimate how much Indiana might spend on the case, but said “I doubt you’ll see a large figure at the end of this.”

The health reform lawsuit was filed in federal court in Pensacola, Fla., seven minutes after Obama signed health reform into law. The lawsuit will be amended soon to include Indiana and its claims, Zoeller said.
