Would you like to sue the Administration over ObamaCare?

In an unprecedented move, Officials at Liberty Legal Foundation are offering Americans the opportunity to join in a lawsuit that calls Obamacare unconstitutional and alleges Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Obama simply ignored the Constitution to adopt their plan. They point out if the federal government can regulate our health insurance by affirming their right to control us under the "General Welfare" clause, claiming "Congress can regulate conduct of individuals if the 'class of activities,' 'taken in the aggregate'" affects interstate commerce." Under that broad interpretation, there would essentially be no behavior the government couldn't demand the power to regulate. Liberty Legal Foundation also aims to reassert States Rights under the 10th Amendment.

From the lawsuit: (PDF)
"All rulings by any Federal Court that leave no appreciable limitations upon Congressional authority clearly destroy the central purpose of the Constitution. All such rulings, therefore, violate the most fundamental canon of legal interpretation. Specifically, all precedent that interprets the Commerce clause or the General Welfare clause of the Constitution as granting Congress essentially unfettered authority to regulate all aspects of human interaction, effectively destroy the most important purpose of the Constitution. Such precedent has eroded the foundations of our Republic, and must be overturned."
To date they have about 30,000 signatures. Add your name to the list-think how wonderful it would be to send this petition to the court with 1 million signatures.
