More than half of the states in the U.S. — 28 out of 50 — are now challenging the constitutionality of ObamaCare in federal court, joining Florida’s lawsuit questioning the the massive governmental overreach Barack Obama signed last March. He said it was done “On behalf of my mother.”
Arizona is part of the Florida lawsuit along with Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming and Virginia.
Virginia has filed its own lawsuit, making it the 28th state challenging the health-care law in federal court
Yesterday at the Arizona Republican Party Statutory Meeting, newly elected Attorney General Tom Horne brought the assemblage of elected state committeeman to their feet in a cheering, standing ovation as he declared “In contrast to my predecessor, I have joined in the lawsuit declaring ObamaCare [the government mandated health care plan] unconstitutional.”
Gov. Brewer initially joined the suit last May. But Democrat Attorney General Terry Goddard, refused to join in the suit. Horne, a Republican, was elected in November to succeed Goddard.
On behalf of the state of Arizona, Horne has also has joined in the lawsuit in support of SB 1070 — unlike his predecessor.
Additionally, and in contrast to his predecessor, the former Superintended of Public Instruction — now Arizona’s Attorney General — is fighting Tucson Unified School District’s controversial ethnic studies program, which he stated divides our students by race and teaches them from Marxist textbooks.
Horne remarked that he was attacked in a recent New York Times editorial for his stance, adding that the Communist Daily Worker beat the NYT by four years.
That should answer any questions about the positions held by the renowned Gray Lady.
