LANSING - Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox today announced that Michigan has joined the State of Florida in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of health care legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives Sunday night (H.R. 3590).

"Congress' attempt to force Michigan families to buy health insurance - or else - raises serious constitutional concerns," said Cox. "We will fight to defend the individual rights and freedoms of Michigan citizens against this radical overreach by the federal government."

Michigan joined several states in Florida's legal challenge to H.R. 3590. The lawsuit challenges Congressional authority under the U.S. Constitution to enact an individual mandate compelling Michigan citizens to purchase health insurance or face large fines.

Cox also expressed concern about the continued inclusion of the so-called "Cornhusker Kickback" in legislation. The "Kickback" allows the State of Nebraska to avoid paying its fair share of an expansion of Medicaid by forcing taxpayers in states like Michigan to pick up the $100 million tab.

In December, Cox joined a bi-partisan group of Attorneys General from across the country opposing the kickback and demanding Congress remove the unfair provision or potentially face legal action.


  1. The lawsuits are just beginning, and I hope people back them up and don't give up- maybe we can get things pending and slow it up a bit until November, at least!

    This will divide the nation as states opt out at the suing fest begins!

  2. ramsam I can only pray that this bill gets knocked down so we can have a good bill that is good for the people not special interest.

  3. Constitution Means Nothing to This Administration! Hopefully it STILL Does To Judicary Branch of Government!

    Fixing Health System is the RIGHT Thing to DO, Taking Away Freedom of Choice is a LEFT Thing to DO!

    Give UP One Freedom and It Would Be Like a Deck of Cards So Now We Will See and WAIT for November When WE Can Get a REDEAL!

  4. al, the deck of cards started falling with the Patroit act but you on the right didn't bitch and moan about the cons who voted to usurp the constitution. I didn't see you vote them out or protest them.

    just being hypocrites again thats all your doing.

  5. JOEY sings the lib classic: "Two wrongs make a right!"

    Same old song, sung by the same old hypocrite.

    Joey, so you have no problem with the government forcing people to buy a product from a private corporation? That's the sense I get from you is all.

  6. ADULTERER........

    Just thought in keeping with how the republican party works these days we'd subject Mike Cox to the same civility that Dems are getting from the right.

    I want to go to a press conference and yell that just to be like the right.

  7. Wow, are you in 4th grade or did they hold you back in 3rd?

    Joe, if you don't like others doing it why would you do it?

    I guess do whatever makes you happy.

  8. John, you think i am being serious. I wouldn't waste my time. It just show you how stupid these people that yell these things are. the guy during Obama's speech, this assclown, they are stupid. in 4th grade like you said.

  9. On that point, we agree Joe. I guess I'm just used to you being an a-hole. Maybe you can add an emoticon if you are just being sarcastic or something. Makes it easier to distinguish. Save me some damn typing! LOL


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
