    Prior to midnight yesterday, Liberty Counsel filed a federal lawsuit against the newly signed healthcare law on behalf of Liberty University. The suit names as defendants the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, Timothy Geithner, the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, the Secretary of Labor, Hilda Solis, and the U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, in their official capacities overseeing the enormous government expansion in health care regulations.

    Forcing health insurance on every person and employer is a stunning example of arbitrary power the Constitution does not give to federal bureaucrats.

    I hope these challenges are successful but have a thought that the success may be limited to striking out certain provisions of the law. I hope others in the private sector get on board and clog up the system with court challenges.

    Hopefully, the states may have a more permanent and broader impact on this law.

    [BTW, off topic here, but wonder about the promised executive order???? I thought executive orders depended on openings built into existing law which the president finds and takes advantage of. He is not given the power to legislate by executive order.... but that doesn't mean he wont try, and it doesn't mean the congress will do its diligence and challenge. The birds of the same feather will flock together.]

    The executive order is unconstitutional and will be struck down. There is only one provision that needs to be struck down in this pseudo health care bill and that is the mandate that everyone must buy insurance. Once that is deemed unconstitutional most of the rest of it falls apart.
