I read several articles concerning all the states that have challenged health care reform as unconstitutional. Various Attorney Generals were reported to have joined together to save America from the evils of socialism.
Eric Cantor is not the biggest Republican liar it appears. You see the tale of the states challenge is a bigger lie.
In Texas, we have Greg Abbott as our Attorney General. He is as lazy a Republican as only they can be in Texas. But, he employs many, many Assistant Attorney Generals whose job is to collect back child support, set child support and enforce child support obligations, by jailing the offenders if needed.
Among other things, Abbott's employees regularly ask the Republican judges of our state to order a parent to provide health insurance for their children and regularly ask those same judges to jail those who fail to provide those children health insurance.
And, Abbott regularly issues press releases boasting of his prowess and his employees diligence in enforcing these orders. In short, he is a hypocrite.
But, he is also a liar. The lawsuit described by the press as a challenge by fourteen states has at least one state that is not part of that suit. That would be Abbott's home state and employer Texas.
You see Abbott cannot sue anyone on behalf of the State of Texas without authorization of the State Legislature, which has not met, considered the action or authorized the litigation.
Abbott simply put his name on the lawsuit. Texas is not even claimed as a party to the litigation. It is simply a publicity stunt to impress the tea party Republicans. Liar, liar, pants on fire.
