  • List of 27 States Suing Over Obamacare

    Last March, Virginia and Florida (joined by 12 other states) filed suit against Obamacare, challenging its constitutionality. Since that time, many other states have joined in, recognizing the threat posed by the legislation to both the Constitution and their own state budgets. As we reported on Friday, more than half of all states are now suing over Obamacare.

    In Friday’s post, several commenters asked for a complete list of the states involved with the various lawsuits, which we have compiled below. The following list contains all 27 states that have started or joined in a lawsuit against Obamacare. Those highlighted gray are in the process of joining a suit or, in the case of Oklahoma, preparing to sue on their own.

      With all kinds of exemptions and waivers being handed out to Obama's favorite companies and with over half the states suing, says it's unsustainable and because it's not the federal governments job, repeal is of the essence. This bill continues to waste time and money. Keep in mind also the wasted PAPERWORK!

      • I agree this is like going back in time to the clivil war for states rights.
        when the federal goverment is able to control the american people it is time to disolve that goverment.
        Plus the federal goverment has stopped working for its people obama and his health care act,and the irs abilitly to fine a person 2000 dollars cause he can't afford a good healthcare plan.
        then there is bill dick clition that passes the equal housing act then the banks fell because of hege funds,then the passing of NAFTA the worst act is history to destory the america's peoples jobs,they all went to mexico

    4. EJJ, Fort Worth, Tex says:

      The timely hearing & ultimately decision by the SCOTUS on the constitutionality of Obamacare is critical…even if it is repealed by Congress. A SCOTUS ruling will create better boundaries for what a progressive Congress might attempt in the future.

    5. George Colgrove, VA says:

      This is unprecedented. The cost of this which the self-preserving entity called the federal government – of which needs to defend itself from the people – will need to incur will be high. This will eat up tax dollars we do not have. We are a poor nation. We are debating in congress about if we are going to keep it or repeal it. Three quarters of the American people want to see the federal government shrink – it is unclear where, but we want it to shrink. Not even a tenth of the country sees raising taxes is smart. Obamcare will make the federal government swell in proportions never enjoyed by such a greedy bunch ever before. Common sense says this legislation has to go down. At best, it was an ill-conceived mistake. Just let it go, before it consumes the future of America. However, in today’s world common sense is practically dead.

      An Obituary printed in the London Times – Interesting and sadly – rather true

      Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth, records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

      - Knowing when to come in out of the rain;

      - Why the early bird gets the worm;

      - Life is not always fair;

      - And maybe it was my fault.

      Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (do not spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

      His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

      Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

      It declined even further, when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

      Common Sense lost the will to live, as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims did.

      Common Sense took a beating when you could not defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

      Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

      Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.

      His four stepbrothers survive him;

      I Know My Rights

      I Want It Now

      Someone Else Is To Blame

      I am a Victim

      Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

    6. West Texan says:

      Thank you for pulling together a list of states. I'm so very proud of these governors and/or attorney generals for exercising their constitutional duty. This is the most significant stand against federal overreach since the civil war. Fortunately today such federal power grab is being challenged in the courts and not on the field of battle. Tomorrow is Confederate Hero's Day here Texas. The Old South's human livestock and racist policies were pure evil that demanded an end. But their defense of our inherited dual sovereignty and individual freedoms was proper. And as HF's earlier post indicated, Frederick Douglas would have agreed.

    7. Lee, Alabama says:

      It would be interesting to also identify the which states are Republican and which are Democrat. Is Obamacare leaning toward a partisan or by-partisan issue or is it more a state by state gauge of socioeconomic preasure?

      • Lkrahn says:

        Dear Lee, as a conservative living in WA state, I was dumbfounded to see my state on that list. Washington state is as blue as the deep ocean we border, we've not had a conservative in higher office in the 40 years I've lived here. I think it goes to prove that when people ACTUALLY read the bill (which I have) they agreed it was a fiscal nightmare and a social mess.

      • zac says:

        two of the twenty-seven states have democrat governors. The two states are washington state and Colorado. here is a link to wiki that has a map of red and blue state as well as a list of governors and their party affiliation.

    8. Barb in WI says:

      Obamacare is an Obamination. It is 2000+ pages chock full of new taxes and regulations giving the Dept of Health & Human Services the power equal to the German Gestapo. There is no place for this type of law in our constitutional republic. We simply cannot be forced by the government to buy anything! Also, more than 230 waivers from Obamacare compliance have already been granted and of course these are to Obama's hand selected unions and others on his "Friends of Obama list". Just imagine the payoffs and corruption in the granting of such waivers. The president, his family and Congress are also exempt. The rest of us unwashed masses are not so lucky. Obamacare is such madness that all Americans should be furious that this was rammed down our throats in such a dirty fashion by such an arrogant Congress.

    9. Jill, California says:

      Shame on California for not being part of the lawsuit.

    10. Dusty, Washington says:

      As a resident of Washington state, let me caution everyone reading this to assume too much from this list. Our Attorney General is acting of his own accord, against the wishes of the legislature. Ultimately, it only takes one person in one position to join the suit, and in no way represents (even though it may align with) the opinion of the people in the state. Even many of the representatives who opposed the bill find themselves unable to support this action, as there is no backing of the people.

      • Bill says:

        I also live in Washington. I know this state is in such a mess Governor Gregoire will not seek another term. Republican attorney general will most likely be the next governor. He will get Obamacare off the backs of Washingtonians

      • Diana says:

        Unfortunately, you are correct about this. It seems that "We The People" truly do not matter. Oh, they talk a good talk while campaigning but once in office it's another story. Back to the issue at hand. It couldn't hurt if we spread the word even now in hopes that those Americans residing in the states which have have not filed suit yet would contact their representatives pleading with them to join the others filing suit against Mr. Obama. It would be wonderful to have have every state of the Union filing suit against him.

    11. Greg B. Vail, AZ says:

      George: Can I use this little article tidbit to pass out amongst friends? I just love the satire.

      West Texan: I have long admired the Texan state of mind. In your state as here in Arizona we have our liberal embarrassments. You have Houston and we have Tucson. I live on the City of Tucson line. The city council of Tucson has the city drowning in debt. With 5 democrats and 1 Republican, you now know why. The idea of free health care for all is a mantra there. The slight Democratic majority manages to elect individuals who support Obama Care. With all due respect to Gabby Giffords, (pray she recovers quickly), she is a tax and spend Democrat, supportive of Obama Care and Government stimulus. She is however a staunch supporter of the 2nd amendment and a vocal supporter of border security. I just wish she would be a little more careful with our tax dollars.

      • TucsonNative says:

        No,West Texan, no one knows why it's more Democratic. Why not share and explain.

      • Clay Thomas says:

        Greg, where were you when the Feds were spending $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ on the war? You probably had a sign out in front of your house near Tucson "Support the Troops". Who can argue with that statement. But how about those Liberals in Tucson? Did they have a sign saying "WMD was a fraud"? Can you argue with that statement?

    12. Scott Carver says:

      With as many states sueing to stop enactment, and all the back-door, cloak-room deals made to actually pass it in the first place, on top of all the loopholes and exceptions make to gather support for it; is there anybody in their right mind that actually thinks Obamacare is a good idea.

      Good ideas stand on their own. They don't need to have support bought for them. They don't need to have exemptions made for a specific groups to get them to support it. Obamacare is not a good idea.

    13. Leith Wood Richmond says:

      I'm proud to live in Virginia and delighted to see the list of states who have followed.The health care bill is not about quality care, but quantity. No rergard for individual rights and desires and no respect for the sacred bond between a patient and their doctor. The epitome of nannygate, no common sense thinking, where we're all alike. Thank God we're not. All about control and power from a huge, mindless government.

    14. ONTIME says:

      Barry who's administration is questionable at best without credentials, needs to be challenged in a great number of areas concerning the Constitution and his fondness for fiat, executive order and circumventing constitutional law. The congress is seemingly naieve or confused as to what their roll is, representation and upholding the law is not in their realm anymore they look to all as if they have given up thwarting the exec branch and all their edicts and go onto fund this insanity as if it were their idea.

      Many who follow the workings of government are hoarse from yelling about the breech of trust between their elected officials and themselves. There is little or no investigation, open discussion or defunding of these crazy defilements of liberty and law. So far the disgraceful 111th replaced by the 112th congress is now filled with conservatives willing to fight for states rights and repeal but that is yet to be proven and we will be waiting to see who works as a trusted conservative and who becomes another victim of compromise by libs and RINO's.

      Best of luck America, the fight is on.

    15. Tammie, Indiana says:

      Kentucky, my home state, WHERE ARE YOU???? Thankfully, my adoptive state Indiana had the sense to join. Oh wait….I know why. They elected a moron for governor – which shocked me because they are normally more conservative than Indiana. Hopefully, he'll be gone next time around.

    16. paul says:

      How do we here in Minnesota go about demanding that our state be added to the list of states sueing the obamacare issue?

      I fear our State Atorney General is in favor of this bill and will not follow the demands of the majority in this state that Do Not Want This Law forced on us.

    17. George Colgrove, VA says:

      Greg B. Vail, AZ

    18. Tom Sullivan in FL says:

      We need a map of these states. We need 34 states to call for a constitutional converntion, and 38 states in order to ratify amendments.

    19. A.W. Bowman, Shrevep says:

      With the number of states joining in with legal challenge to repeal Obamacare, one would have thought that there would never have been enough congressional votes to pass that legislation in the first place. It really is too bad that there are still so many in congress (federal government) that are so out of touch with the will of people they claim to represent.

    20. Michelle says:

      I totally stand behind these states! May victory be one on our behalf.

      I am ashamed to even say I live in California. The once wonderful state has been destroyed by the liberals and helped along on its path of destruction by a has-been actor who merely followed along with the spending, regulations and supporting illegals to the detriment of taxpaying citizens. Arnold started gearing up for Obamacide prior to leaving office. California is nearly bankrupt now and the additional burdens put upon taxpayers in this state due to this monstrosity will only hasten bankruptcy.

    24. CREW says:

    26. bzylady says:

      The introduction article "How to Repeal Obamacare" Any Senator can use Rule 22 to commence debate on H.R. 2 if they have held the bill at the desk. Rule 22, the filibuster rule, states:

      "Notwithstanding the provisions of rule II or rule IV or any other rule of the Senate, at any time a motion signed by sixteen Senators, to bring to a close the debate upon any measure, motion, other matter pending before the Senate, or the unfinished business, is presented to the Senate, the Presiding Officer, or clerk at the direction of the Presiding Officer, shall at once state the motion to the Senate, and one hour after the Senate meets on the following calendar day but one, he shall lay the motion before the Senate and direct that the clerk call the roll, and upon the ascertainment that a quorum is present, the Presiding Officer shall, without debate, submit to the Senate by a yea-and-nay vote the question: 'Is it the sense of the Senate that the debate shall be brought to a close?'

      And if that question shall be decided in the affirmative by three-fifths of the Senators duly chosen and sworn—except on a measure or motion to amend the Senate rules, in which case the necessary affirmative vote shall be two-thirds of the Senators present and voting—then said measure, motion, or other matter pending before the Senate, or the unfinished business, shall be the unfinished business to the exclusion of all other business until disposed of."

      There are 27 states that have or are in the process of defying Obamacare so there should be enough Senators to come up with the "16" figure. I am in Arizona and I am sure that our 2 Senators will step up to sign a closure. I intend to ask them if they will do so and seek additional support. Perhaps others within the listed states might do the same…..

    27. Bill - Texas says:

      This law is an abomination! Members of Congress are specifically exempted as are all Muslims. On page 425, it specifically states that everyone will have advance care planning consultation. Social Security participants will be required to attend "end of life planning" seminars every 5 years (death panels). These two stipulations are just two of the law's requirements that have nothing to do with health care. On page 272 section 1145, cancer hospital are instructed to "ration" care according to the patient's AGE!

    28. David says:

      Please stop referring to the health care bill as "Obamacare". It is disingenuous and derogatory. This bill was perhaps the biggest exercise in compromise with a minority party in our nation's history. It's sad that the premise of the repeal is based on a clause insisted upon by the insurance lobby and heavily supported by the GOP. It's almost as if this was planned from the beginning of the process just to undermine the democratic party and administration.

      The mandate that everyone should obtain health insurance or have it provided for them by the state is almost as atrocious as the mandate that you must obtain a lawyer before a trial or have one appointed for you. It would have been completely legal to levy a tax and dispense the proceeds as medical payments (the "Single Payer" model). It is the use of private industries to provide care which is at issue here, not the over-extension of government.

      The heavy regulations imposed on the insurance companies was the aim of the bill, the mandate was the cost in political terms. Exceptions were provided only for groups who do not participate in our current health care system (mostly Amish, Native Americans on reservations, and other religious groups who do not believe in medicine). I have read all 1900 pages of the health care bill, and it's pretty darned reasonable. The greatest cost is to the insurance companies who need to change their processes. Since they have already done so my money is on the bill staying law: the insurance lobbies are powerful.

      In the mean time, the new regulations mean that for the first time since I was on my parents' health care plan I can go to my doctor for a free (no out of pocket cost) anual checkup, my company was able to switch to a better group policy (since policies can't be denied for pre-existing conditions), and my aging mother will have health insurance (subsidized) for the first time in ten years, for which I am incredibly grateful.

He/she is only trying to make points with the administration at best. He/she is one of the attornies who would take your money and then have you plead guilty, OR, takes the job and does nothing for the money being paid. How many of the Senators are attornies?

      I sit here and wonder what in the world became of this great Republic. They are right now voting on repealing Obamacare. I believe the Republicans will have their 10 minutes of fame, and the vote will fail. They will than turn around to the Republican party and say "Hey we tried, we kept our promise". And it will return to business as usual.

      To the folks of the State of Nevada, what was going through your heads when you re-elected Harry Read? You should all be ashamed of yourselves. You had an opportunity to get rid of the Read & Pelosi act, and you failed the country.

      There are so many exemptions and pork in this bill it makes your head spin. Is this what you want for you children and grandchildren? The Government running every aspect of their lives or did you think that far ahead.

      We are no longer America the Great (as wanted by Mr. Obama) we are zombies in America. Catering to every single special interest imaginable, we mustn't offend! Well congratulations – the destruction of the country is near!

      I am wondering why, instead of joining the larger suit, Oklahoma has decided to stand alone in their suit. I just saw the newly inaugurated Oklahoma Governor, Mary Fallin, interviewed on Fox News. It is interesting to note that there are 6 states which have been added to the list in the new year bringing the total to OVER half of the country.

      Being a resident of Oregon, I have to sit on the sidelines and cheer for the success of this effort. I too would wish that Oregon would like to have her states rights respected but as long as my state remains "blue", I can only watch and perhaps donate. Is the 10th amendment a part of this suit?

      This is about more than repealing Obamacare. This is about repealing a bill so huge that was passed and signed into law and NOBODY knows all that is in it!

We need to repeal this bill just on the grounds that God knows what is in this Trojan Horse.

    46. TheCivilRoar.com says:


      > "The heavy regulations imposed on the insurance companies was the aim of the bill"

      Regulations — i.e. centralizing control of local decisions — was certainly the aim of this bill. But don't stop with insurance companies; the Democrat majority and the President also loaded on new ways to micromanage the care doctors provide, what health plan businesses must provide their employees, how much money states must allocate for health care, and indeed whether or not any American can refuse to buy health insurance.

      It's a massive central control scheme, no Republican in Congress voted for the final bill, and 34 House Democrats voted against it.

      > "perhaps the biggest exercise in compromise with a minority party in our nation’s history."

      Perhaps not. If the input of both parties was sought, you would think that the only two doctors in the Senate would have some sort of voice in the process. This was not the case, see their series of videos here: http://republican.senate.gov/healthcare/doctors/i

    47. Sarah Nelson, CO says:

      Obama said 'if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor' – that was the patient bill we were promised. Since then, Barack is on record saying 'that promise may not be feasible'. In his own words – we can argue – the bill does not protect patients but rather mandates them to pay into a system that takes away their health care choices. No We Can't be mandated to purchase insurance and then not be able to keep our doctor.

      THANK GOD for Judge Vinson! Let's hope Obamacare snowballs from here to the trash heap of history, where it belongs!

    52. Wildcat from Dallast says:

      Judge Vinson’s ruling is far more important than Barry’s administration wants to acknowledge per his Super Bowl day interview with Bill O’Reilly. Barry’s arrogance relative to this specific issue came thru in vivid color during this interview as he stated that more judges have upheld rather than declared it unconstitutional so he is not concerned about that ruling.

      In my assessment the 27 states’ attorney generals need to return to Judge Vinson’s court with that clip and file a “cease and desist” motion to stop this un-American administration from continuing to implement this unconstitutional law pending the eventual final ruling from the Supreme Court.

      Perhaps the Heritage Foundation could pursue evaluating this proposal, contact the 27 state attorney generals and start a grassroots response to ALL American citizens to contact their state attorney general to demand they take decisive action at the soonest opportune time.

    53. Fed Up! says:

      Well all I have to say is to the ones who are supporting Obamacare. IF its really great SO great then WHY more than half of U.S. States filed a lawsuit against it??

      I am proud that my state is on the list to say no to Obamacare. Hospitals can not turn people away because they don't have health insurance – Right!? Obama is forcing so many states to spend money they can't afford to spend to fight him on so many things. This is ridiculous.

      • PedroLuvFree says:

        Question: What happens when a private hospital turns a person away? Answer: They drive themselves down to a county hospital and receive free healthcare payed for by you the tax payer.

      I learned a lot when I read the book "THE AUDACITY OF DECEIT" , At first I would not read the book because of the picture on the front, but I am glad I did it has opened my eyes a hole lot.

    59. James A. Greenough says:

      Obamacare must be repealed or our Constitution means nothing!!! Americans will loose their freedoms of Life, Liberty, and the persuit of happiness forever!!

    60. jwtx says:

      capps law now in effect to allow Obama to rip everyone's 401k legally also pension plan up to 10 percent, the law stipulates that age 55 cannot buy cancer savig drugs or diabetics drugs. Can't travel or own gold. Now obama lovers how do like him now ?

    61. Genevieve says:

      MA isn't against it because for years now it has all ready made it possible for everyone in the state to be covered. They cover small business owners and self employed people if they can't afford health care.

    62. alice gordon says:

      I am not afraid of very much in life after living for 78 yrs….however I am deathly afraid of this Obama Health Care Plan.
      What is Washington State doing re: this plan?
      This OCP MUST be repealed…from what I am reading it will effect evey poor soul living here in America. It's absolutely atrocious.

    63. Liv says:

      Obamacare must be repealed. If not, might as throw away out Constitution. Of course, Obama would love that.

    64. Bill says:

      It is almost certain that Romney will carry all these states plus probably a dozen others that did not want to spend state budget money to oppose it but are also against it: Arkansas, Tennessee, Georgia, Iowa, Montana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, North Carolina, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Missouri. Also in play will be New Jersey and Massachusetts. This list of states plus those who also oppose it will spell a devastating defeat for Obama come November.

    65. @dangaskins says:

      States will be sued for requiring car insurance if the mandate on Obama Care is deemed unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court

    66. carol mc says:

      i am don't understand why all these states are suing Obama care! all 50 states require some form of auto insurance to put a vehicle on the road, in their state——when did a piece of metal and plastic become worth more than a human being, what a sorry sorry country we have become.

    67. Edlindaspy says:

      OUT OF THE 26 STATES suing ObamaCare, 24 are Republican Governors..2 states ,,Colorado and Washington are Democrat Governors… Is this political? INDEED IT IS,,,…American's need health insurance SHOULD be the issue,,but it always boils down to the politics..The "Supreme Court Of Corporations" elected by and for corporations not for the people? I don't understand how republicans who are not millionaires/ billionaires can vote republican against a bill that is life or death for people of America… Someone asked for this,,here it is: Spin it anyway you want,,it tells the entire story

      Virginia ……………R
      South Carol ………R
      South Dakot……..R
      North Dako………R

    68. sanity rules says:

      Today is a victory for all Americans!

      Obama’s got your back.

      Vote for your self interests not those of the greedy corporations who have the poor uneducated masses brainwashed in America. Why else is our standard of living falling so fast? The only conspiracy here is the coordinated efforts of the scared wealthy few to hoard their money. Remember, they won’t be able to build a fence high enough! Just hope the “masses” don’t agree to defend them.

    69. been thinking about moving out of California. here's my list of possble destinations

    70. Jeri Medure says:

      How are we doing with these lawsuits? I haven't heard anything about it iin the news. I hope we are winning these lawsuits. We can't let this healthcare law be implemented. It will bankrupt our country. It will destroy the Catholic religion and all the other religions will be in jepardy. They want to implement the muslim faith and sheria law. We need to look into how many muslims are in this country without a visa. What muslims are here illegally. They need to be deported. If this President gets in again we will lose all of our freedoms. He will get rid of Fox News . He will take over the internet, and replace it with propaganda. You see the idiots in there following suit.,the mayor of New York Bloomberg and Rom Emanual and I don't know all their names. He will get rid of our guns with an executive order. All the things he hasn't gotten thru he will use an executive order to put them thru. We can't let him get rid of our weapons and leave us defensless. We can't let him slash our defenses.

    71. Sherry says:

      I wanna know why my state is not on this list? I will be trying to rectify this on Tuesday, that was one of my major factors on every candidate who is against Obamacare. Missouri can not afford this most of us are surviving day to day, Mr. President I respectfully request that you stay the heck out of my personal affairs, do I tell you how to run your life?

    72. Romney care was duefully elected by the people. Obama's Affordable Healthcare Act should should have been put to the people, but we know it wouldn't have withstood that test. Sue the posers who tried to impose this.
