Good for those states! While most people will agree that the health care system needs to be overhauled, Obama and his government have no right to FORCE people to pay for it.

You know one thing I can't understand for the life of me the health care system is broke now. Just because a president wants a new one nobody likes it especially Republicans. Now we want to use tax payers money to sue the Health Care system waiste more money. Don't we need to focus on something else your not going to please everyone the system we are in now does not please many people so get over it and lets see how this works. Lets wake up trying to fix Last presidents bone head mistakes.
