Ut-oh. I've only written one blog post about this one (back in February) because the argument behind it is so idiotic that it actually makes King vs. Burwell seem like Marbury v. Madison by comparison.

Here's the short version:

Texas is suing the federal government over President Barack Obama's landmark health law — again.

In a 20-state lawsuit filed Monday in federal court, Attorney General Ken Paxton argued that after the passage of the GOP's tax plan last year — which also repealed a provision of the sweeping legislation known as "Obamacare" that required people to have health insurance — the health law is no longer constitutional.
