Default New Idaho Law: AG Must Sue Federal Government If Health Care Reform Bill Passes

New Idaho Law: AG Must Sue Federal Government If Health Care Reform Bill Passes

BOISE, Idaho -- Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter is the first state chief executive to sign a measure requiring his attorney general to sue the federal government if Congress passes health care reform.

Legal experts say the measure, signed Wednesday, will likely be struck down. But Idaho's new law reflects growing frustration with President Barack Obama's health-care proposal.

Legislation similar to Idaho's is pending in as many as 37 other states nationwide.

Democrats in the nation's capital are hoping to pass health care reform by this weekend.

The American Legislative Exchange Council created the model legislation for Idaho and other states. The Washington, D.C.-based, nonprofit says Idaho is the first to sign a version into law.

Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli also threatened suit Wednesday against the federal government if the health care reform bill in Congress is passed using "deem and pass."

Last week, the Virginia Legislature passed a bill declaring it illegal for the federal government to require Virginians to buy health insurance.

Democrats are hoping to pass a version of the reform by this weekend.

Last week, Virginia legislators passed a measure similar to Idaho's new law, but Otter was the first state chief executive to sign such a bill, according the American Legislative Exchange Council, which created model legislation for Idaho and other states. The Washington, D.C.,-based nonprofit group promotes limited government.

"Congress is planning to force an unconstitutional mandate on the states," said Herrera, the group's health task force director.


Otter, a Republican, already warned U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in December that Idaho was considering litigation if health reform went through. He signed the bill during his first such public ceremony of the 2010 Legislature.

"What the Idaho Health Freedom Act says is that the citizens of our state won't be subject to another federal mandate or turn over another part of their life to government control," Otter said.

Minority Democrats in Idaho who opposed the bill called any lawsuits over health care reform frivolous.

Senate Minority Leader Kate Kelly, D-Boise, also complained about the bill's possible price tag. Those who drafted the new law say enforcement may require an additional Idaho deputy attorney general at a cost of $100,000 a year.

The Virginia (remember a year ago when they were a "blue" state?) assembly passed a bill on 3/11 to bar the "health-insurance" mandate.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...031003908.html

And today the Virginia AG confirms Virginia will sue over health care. is there a "suck a rope" emoticon?
