Pam Bondi discusses new states joining the lawsuit against Obamacare

Pam Bondi was on Greta Van Susteren's On the Record show last night, to discuss the addition of six new states to the lawsuit against Obamacare:

...don't miss the nice "Please call me Pam!" moment at the end of the video between Bondi and Van Susteren. :)

Currently, over half of the 50 states are engaged in active litigation against Obamacare, and others may join in the next few weeks.  When you add in the fact that the legislation has always had negative polling results and voters in the 2010 midterm elections overwhelmingly stated that they were voting for Republicans because they wanted them to repeal the health care bill, it boggles my mind how Obama and the Democrats in Congress can get on TV and say with a straight face that the health care bill is "popular" or that they are representing the "will of the people."

As I type this, the House bill to repeal Obamacare has passed, 245-189.  I am very proud of the Republican Congressional leadership who put together a short and simple bill, and also of all the Republicans and the three Democrats who voted in favor of repeal.

Regarding the Senate, I highly recommend you read this excellent commentary on RedState:

Contrary to what the Democrats are claiming, today's vote was not merely "symbolic."  The Republicans ran on a pledge to repeal ObamaCare; failing to take action on this issue would have made them hypocrites.  Also, the Democrats are now forced to go on the record and decide whether or not to vote for this bill.  Newly-elected Democratic members of Congress who had escaped the political fallout that rained down on their colleagues last year will now have a public vote supporting ObamaCare permanently attached to their names.
