    As of yesterday, I heard that 37 states were preparing to sue the federal government because of the mandate to force citizens to purchase health insurance (among other provisions). Also, Mark Levin's Landmark Legal Foundation is preparing to sue President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and members of Congress if the Slaughter Rule is used to pass this bill. While it's true that this type of "Deem and Pass" rule may have been used before, clearly to use it for legislation as large as the Health Care Reform Bill makes a mockery of the United States Constitution.

    The states will not 'sue' the Federal Government. What they can do is pass state legislature that NULLIFIES the Federal Government law. Much the way California and other states have done with the legalization of medical marijuana. So far, Idaho is the first to move forward on this.

    As far as Colorado is concerned, only time will tell.

    i'm no longer bowled over at what percentage idiots answer. If the bill is got here upon to be no longer interior the scope of the powers of the U.S. authorities as dictated by technique of the structure and further enforced by technique of ideal courtroom Rulings, then the flexibility is residing interior the states. So wager what which skill? Idaho DID do something sensible! Suing isn't inevitably a monetary outpay. Suing is a project and therein they confirm they could project any bill that receives exceeded. this can deliver it into the SC, the position it can nicely be determined no matter if the bill is suitable and passes constitutional muster.

    Has any state ever successfully sued the federal government over ANYTHING?

    They might attempt to nullify any law that passes, and that may or may not succeed based on a host of Constitutional issues - but I don't think civil court will apply under these circumstances!

    The ones that want their share of Federally-distributed tax dollars reduced will, and I suppose that would be the ones where the Governors & all other elected officials wanted to guarantee not getting elected again to anything...
