State Attorney Generals Threaten Pelosi and Reid over Health Care Legislation

Republican State Attorney Generals in 13 states are threatening a lawsuit over the proposed Senate Health Care legislation, if passed into law. Apparently, there are no Democrat State Attorney Generals concerned about the the unconstitutionality of the Bill.


A letter was sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid on Wednesday, December 30th. I can see them thumbing their collective progressive noses in unison:
The letter was signed by top prosecutors in Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Michigan, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Washington state. All are Republicans, and McMaster and the attorneys general of Florida, Michigan and Pennsylvania are running for governor in their respective states.
States are concerned that legislation was changed to garner the vote of, in particular, Nebraska's Senator Ben Nelson. In other words, Nelson's vote was bought, and taxpayers will pay $100 million dollars for the deal now known as the "Cornhusker kickback." In other words, taxpayers in states other than Nebraska will pay the deficit that Nebraska is now relieved of. More on Nelson here, and here.

Get this America, Professor Andy Siegel, at Seattle University School of Law, and formerly a professor at University of South Carolina School of Law, says this is:
...some combination of the losers just complaining about the officiating, or complaining about how the game was played, in combination with trying to make the bill look as seedy and inappropriate as possible, for political purposes,"
Academia proves over and over, everyday, that it is a institutional curse upon this Nation. A Nation of laws and the U.S. Constitution means nothing to law professors. Thank you to Stop the ACLU. Read their story here.
