Utah is now 1 of 18

From Attorney General Mark Shurtleff's blog site:
Eighteen states have now joined Utah in suing the federal government on the grounds the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional.

Wow, something to be proud of. Maybe we should sue Shurtleff for continuing to make bad decisions. Greiner: You're okay, don't worry about that Hatch Act thing. Utah residents: Vouchers will stand even if Utah Residents vote it down because of the amendment bill.

I may even sue Shurtleff for messing with my rights as a United States Citizen.

Is anyone still taking Shurtleff seriously on this? That's unfortunate. Some expensive stuff for the people of Utah just so's Mark can run for Senate as the tea-partiest of candidates again. What a tool.

The truth is that ObamaCare breaks new constitutional ground. Never before has Congress required people to buy a private product to qualify as a law-abiding citizen.

If Congress can force Americans to buy a product, the question is what remains of the government of limited and enumerated powers, as provided in Article I?

Keep up the good work, Mark. You make us proud that someone has the guts to do what is right.

Ethan Allen: if you are a big fan of the "Constitution", you should have called him on his HB 150. A little consistancy would be nice. But since there isn't any, it's not hard to come to the opinion that Shurtleff is just posturing. Trying for that next 15 minutes of fame on Utah taxpayers dime. Nice.

This is nothing but a tremendous waste of the state's money and human resources. Why doesn't the Utah Republican Party raise the money to pay Utah's share of the cost of this futile partisan gesture and let Utah use its taxpayer funds to address the needs of its citizens.
