Liberal group petitions state health care suit

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:

A liberal activist group plans to deliver petitions to Colorado Attorney General John Suthers opposing his decision to join a national lawsuit to block a federal law overhauling health care.

ProgressNow Colorado says it will take petitions signed by more than 7,000 Coloradans to Suthers’ office Thursday. The online petition demands that Suthers “stop wasting taxpayer dollars on a frivolous grandstand.”

Suthers announced last week that he would join attorneys general in 13 other states to block the health care law signed into law last week by President Barack Obama. All but one are Republicans.

Suthers says a provision requiring most Americans to purchase insurance is an unconstitutional expansion of federal power. Democratic Gov. Bill Ritter and the law’s supporters disagree.

  1. If ProgressNow Colorado would like to make my mortgage payment for me from their own pockets, I’ll fund their health care. Fair enough?

  2. Of course the libs disagree… it is the broadest expansion of communism since FDR’s New Deal and LBJ’s Raw Deal … er… Great New Society.

    If you want to change the Constitution, then hold a Constitutional Convention and get all of the states to do it. But then, the commies have always said, ‘any means, justify the ends.’ Just like Stalin and Mao thought it was Ok to butcher millions because it furhtered the cause.
