Why is Texas suing to strike down Obamacare?

“Your honor, I’m suing my family today to force them to accept my list of vacation locations. A second lawsuit will hold my church accountable for services exceeding one hour. I anticipate several amicus briefs.”

Living by filing lawsuits seems crazy, doesn’t it? As adults we should have reasonable discussions with others to explore choices and resolve disagreements outside the court system, right?

Try telling this to the State of Texas, which has sued the federal government more than 50 times in the last 10 years at a taxpayer cost exceeding $15 million. Texas just spent $7 million on a years-long lawsuit because they didn’t want to air condition a state prison in which inmates had died from the heat. The kicker, at least financially? Texas could have saved $3 million of our taxpayer dollars fixing the problem. Texas has sued against clean air and clean water regulations, immigration policies, health insurance, voting rights — and the list unfortunately goes on and on.
