Corbett to Sue Feds Over Healthcare

States rights and all that.

Political grandstanding...pure and simple. A total waste of taxpayer money and it wins him some Tea bag votes. My opinion of him just fell.

Interesting link... discussion on the federal "supremacy clause" and Congress exceeding the "commerce" and "necessary and proper" clauses.

However, the "federal system" of government we teach in our schools is largely on paper. As soon as the national government begins any conversation with "do this or else you will lose such and such funding..." any "reserved powers" arguments quickly melt away. If these states gain any traction, see the dialog go this route. Power always follows the deeper pockets, even if its a pocket deep in debt.
