Lawsuit up to 18 states

Can anyone remember the last time that eighteen states joined together to sue the federal government over the constitutionality of newly-enacted law?
The joint lawsuit led by Florida and now grouping 18 states was filed on March 23. It claims the sweeping reform of the $2.5 trillion healthcare system violates state-government rights in the U.S. Constitution and will force massive new spending on hard-pressed state governments.

South Carolina, Nebraska, Texas, Utah, Louisiana, Alabama, Colorado, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Washington, Idaho, and South Dakota had previously joined Florida's lawsuit.

"We welcome the partnership of Indiana, North Dakota, Mississippi, Nevada and Arizona as we continue fighting to protect the constitutional rights of American citizens and the sovereignty of our states," Bill McCollum said.
Anyone? Anyone?

Me neither.

But, hey, I've been assured by all of my facebook friends that ObamaCare can't possibly be considered unconstitutional. These states must all be run by, and filled with, wingnuts...
