Petitioning States against Obamacare Reach 26

The health-care legislation by the Obama Administration have met with more opposition, as the States of Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, Wyoming, Maine and Kansas were allowed to be a part of a lawsuit that was filed by Florida. The suit is challenging the constitutional integrity of the health reforms, as they require everyone to mandatorily opt for health insurance.

The permission for filing the suit was given by the US District Judge Roger Vinson from Pensacola in Florida. The case now involves a total of 26-plantiffs and was filed last year by the then Attorney General of Florida, Bill McCollom.

Talking about the latest development, the Attorney General of Texas, Greg Abbot, opined that the actual mood of people all over the country was reflected in the number of states joining the petition. He added that the very integrity of healthcare reforms have been questioned repeatedly.

It was on the 23rd of March last year that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, was passed by the President Barack Obama. The legislation does not allow insurance Companies to deny people who are already sick from accessing insurance policies.

The downside to the law is that it requires people to opt for coverage or end up paying a sum of money as a tax penalty.
