“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6


"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

***FLORIDIAN ALERT: FL Attorney General, Bill McCollum Issues Post-Healthcare Hearing Statement




Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum today released the following statement after the hearing in federal court in Pensacola, Florida on the lawsuit challenging the federal health care law:
“Today, the States presented their argument that the individual mandate is unconstitutional and that the massive expansion of the Medicaid program under the new law coerces the states to spend their resources in a manner that vastly exceeds Congress’s powers."

"This case is of pivotal importance to our Constitutional rights because Congress has limited, enumerated powers under the Constitution and beyond those specific powers, Congress cannot pass law."

"A federal court has already ruled the individual mandate is unconstitutional, but no court has yet addressed the substantial burden the Medicaid expansion will place on state budgets and taxpayers. The states cannot just walk away from the Medicaid program, nor can the states refuse the Medicaid expansion and its tremendous costs."

“Never before have we seen Congress intrude so far upon states’ rights and individual liberty. This is public policy at the expense of our Constitution and the founding principles of our nation, and it is imperative that the states prevail in this suit.”
