27 states now asking for challenge Constitutionality of ObamaCare

With the additions of Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Ohio, Wisconsin and Wyoming, the total rises to 27 states.

More than half of the states—27 out of 50—are now challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare in federal court.
Six additional states--Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Ohio, Wisconsin and Wyoming--petitioned in federal court on Tuesday to join Florida’s law suit challenging the constitutionality of the health care law President Barack Obama signed last March. Nineteen states had previously joined with Florida in this suit, making the total number of states that are now a party to the suit 26.
Virginia, which has filed its own lawsuit against Obamacare, is the 27th state challenging the constitutionality of the health-care law in federal court. (A complete list of all 27 states appears at the bottom of this story.) . . .

UPDATE: With the addition of Oklahoma, 28 states are challenging the constitutionality of ObamaCare.

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has filed a legal challenge against the federal health care overhaul President Barack Obama signed into law last year.

Pruitt's filing Friday in U.S. District Court in Muskogee makes Oklahoma the 28th state to challenge the constitutionality of the individual mandate provision of the federal health care act.

The petition questions whether Congress has the power under the Constitution's Commerce Clause to require citizens to purchase health insurance coverage or be penalized for not doing so. . . .
