38 States Looking To Challenge Healthcarehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNPCDsqJXFs&feature=player_embedded
38 States? That is enough to change things! That is just enough states needed to amend the Constitution.
Article Five of the United States Constitution
The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.
I hope the states plan on not only resisting health care reform, but taking away some of the Federal government’s power while they are at it. The health care debate might end up doing some good if it rallies the states together enough to remove some Federal power.
