50% of all states now suing to stop Obamacare

The Obamacare Disaster: An Appraisal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
Obamacare has proven very unpopular with states. State governments fear rising costs from expanded Medicaid. Local voters hate mandates, government meddling in their health care and higher taxes. Nobody really believes Obamacare will lower the deficit. The number of states now suing to stop the bill has reached 25.
(The Foundry)- …It is also why the newly elected governors of Ohio, Oklahoma, Maine, and Wisconsin have all decided to sue the Obama administration in hopes of stopping Obamacare. Specifically, Gov. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma has announced that the Sooner State will pursue its own case against the law, while Govs. John Kasich (R) and Scott Walker (R) (of Ohio and Wisconsin respectively) will add their states to Florida’s multi-state suit. And yesterday, newly sworn-in state Attorney General William Schneider announced Maine would also join the the Florida litigation. That brings the number of states on the Florida suit to 23 and the total number of states suing to stop Obamacare (which includes Virginia and Oklahoma) to 25.
