Resistance Will Be the Real Mess of Obamacare

It's going to be a long weekend for members of Congress who will be voting on the health care measure. Should it pass, you can look for Constitutional challenges, court fights and states rights battles across the country. This legislation has the potential to do what Watergate and the Clinton Impeachment did: tie up our government for years and stifle it from being able to properly carry out the people's business. Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia's Attorney General, told Greta Van Susteren if the bill passes on Sunday, the commonwealth of Virginia will be in court on Monday.

Governor Bob McDonnell last week signed a law making it illegal to mandate that people have to buy health insurance in the commonwealth of Virginia. A number of other states have passed or are in the process of passing legislation that shores up their 10th amendment rights. Sarah Palin told Glenn Beck yesterday that the states will use all legal tools to remind the federal government that there are enumerated powers and limits to what the federal government can do. These legal tools will be the way in which governors can lead their citizens to have their voices heard. She expects Alaska to follow suit with other states in resisting Obamacare.

Defeating Obamacare now is ultimately the answer. While there may be some hope in efforts to repeal it or defeat it in court, expect these to be the least palatable of options considering the long drawn out fight that would occur should Obamacare pass. Not only will this create a Constitutional "crisis," but will severely limit what a successor administration can do in the event Obama loses the 2012 election as they work to undo the damage caused by this legislation. It will also further undermine the already dwindling faith that citizens have in their government.
