Idaho Signs Law to Sue Fed for Health Care Mandates: 37 States to Follow

Idaho Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter signed a law today requiring the state attorney general to sue the Federal government if Idaho residents are forced to buy federally mandated and qualified health insurance. Thirty-seven other states have similar legislation pending, but according to this, constitutional law experts say federal laws supersede those of the states.

I'm thinking those "constitutional law experts" are Democrats. The Heritage Foundation did an exhaustive review of this issue and the bottom line came down to the necessity for the Supreme Court to create a new constitutional doctrine, in order for Congress to have the power to enforce the mandate. Read the arguments for the unconstitutionality of mandated health care here.
