Georgia’s Fight Against Health Care

For the past few weeks Georgia has had different strategies being pushed to fight changes that Obamacare will bring.  These moves have included two failed attempts at amending the state constitution which would have declared under the 10th Amendment that the state was exercising its right to opt out of the Health Care Law.  Senator Saxby Chambliss joined a group of Senate Republicans on a bill that would have repealed Obamacare.  The latest step taken was today 3/25/10 Governor Sonny Perdue announced that he will be appointing a special Attorney General to file suit against the plan since the State’s Attorney General Democrat Thurbert Baker refused to do it himself.  The Governor’s special attorney general will be another in a growing list of states, 14 so far, suing the federal government over the health care overhaul challenging the constitutionality of the new law.
