Over 10,000 Americans Join Lawsuit Against Obamacare
Date:4/19/2010

In a new twist on lawsuits against Obamacare, TN attorney Van Irion filed a national class action in Federal court. The suit challenges Obamacare on the basis that Congress is not authorized by the Constitution to regulate health care. Mr. Irion is asking the courts to re-evaluate the Commerce clause precedent, arguing that current precedent in effect destroys the intent of the Constitution and specifically the 10th Amendment.

(PRWEB) April 19, 2010 -- Over 10,000 Americans have joined a lawsuit against Obamacare. In a new twist on lawsuits against Obamacare, TN constitutional attorney and congressional candidate Van Irion filed what is shaping up to be a national class action in Federal court April 8th. The suit challenges the constitutionality of Obamacare on the basis that Congress is not authorized by the Constitution to regulate health care. Mr. Irion is asking the courts to re-evaluate the legal precedent related to the Commerce clause, arguing that current precedent in effect destroys the intent of the Constitution and specifically the 10th Amendment.

The lawsuit is a unique take on legal actions against the recently passed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. It is the first suit that allows any US citizen to join as a plaintiff and is the only suit to directly attack the legal precedent of the Commerce clause and therefore the Constitutionality of Obamacare. Greta Van Susteren, who has been following lawsuits related to Health Care Reform on her show “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren”, will interview Van Irion this week during the 10pm time slot.

“The lawsuit quickly became so popular among grassroots movements, that we set up a website to take plaintiff information and allow people to follow the progress of the case,” said Irion, The site name is Obamacare Class Action, or “OCA”, and can be found at http://www.obamacareclassaction.com. The form that captures the necessary information asks for name, address and email address. Phone number and company name is optional, but gives US companies the option of signing on as a corporate plaintiff. “Once the complaint is amended to include all the plaintiffs that have signed on, each name will be listed,” said Irion. “At that point, we expect to have tens of thousands of plaintiffs.”

Since filing suit on April 8th, the site has added 1,000 plaintiffs a day on average, although Irion says that rate is increasing as more people hear about the opportunity to join. “This is truly the ‘People’s Suit’. It is their name on the complaint, versus the President, Pelosi, Reid and the U.S., saying that the Obamacare legislation is wrong. It is unconstitutional and must be overturned. The chance to take this to court with a team of constitutional attorneys making the points they have been shouting for over a year is something Americans have been looking for,” said Irion. "I am one of those that have been pointing out the unconstitutionality of Obamacare and am thrilled to have the opportunity to take on this fight.”

The complaint was filed in Federal Court, Eastern District of Tennessee, Chattanooga, case file number 1:10cv-71. For more information about Van Irion, visit Van4Congress or Law Office of Van R Irion PLLC.
