Shallow In a recent memo, Patriot Update informs me that State lawmakers and attorney generals are lining up to challenge the constitutionality of ObamaCare and wage an outside-the-beltway war against it in the courts. The new IRS mandate with ObamaCare enforces penalties and collections making Americans buy health insurance. If you are due a refund or some other federal benefit, and you did not obtain quali- fied insurance, your refund or benefit may be tapped for your fee. The IRS is not a bill collector, insurance is not a tax and the IRS lacks the authority to enforce the collection of insurance premiums but the mandate effectively creates a back door tax for government run healthcare. Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum will file a lawsuit against the U.S. government over passage of ObamaCare. As of March 29, I0 states have joined Florida in this proposed lawsuit, Alabama, Texas, South Carolina, Utah, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Washington, North Dakota and South Dakota, and as I conclude the paragraph (April 7) Arizona has just announced it is joining this lawsuit. The Lawsuit will challenge the constitutional basis of the healthcare bill. The health care reform legislation passed by the House of Representatives clearly violates the U.S. Constitution and infringes on each states sover- eignty. Massachusetts is the only state in the na- tion to require healthcare. Citizens are well aware when the federal funds are exhausted the state will be bankrupt. Voters retaliated by electing Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate, the seat held for 47 years by Ted Kennedy. The American people were outraged when Demo- crats in the House accepted Pelosi&apos;s bribes of power, money, promises of committee positions and getting better office space to sell out America and destroy the best healthcare system in the world. Democrats ignored the 60% of Americans that do not want ObamaCare. Democrats ignored a moun- tain of more than 1,346,016 faxes from AmeriPAC supporters and phone calls that virtually shut down the Congressional switchboard. In conclusion I inject the contempt I feel the Demo- (Continued on Page 4) "dV 7"00o/l E.egenJ00 J'Der:orm at eJ, undrai00er Oldieo U00Ji]00t to 00ene00it 00tudento" 00ducation Rock' n' roll legends The Tokens, Shirley Austin Reeves of The Shirelles and Charlie Thomas and the Drifters, will perform at the Medford Vocational Techni- cal High School's Oldies Night. The fundraiser, to be held at the Chevalier The- atre, Medford, on May 8, will also feature The Toys with Barbra Harris and comedian Paul DeAngelo. "This is a night for the fu- ture," said the school's direc- tor Dr. Mahoney. "It is an important fundraiser for the school and it means a lot to the young adults enrolled here." All money raised on the night will go directly to providing the students and staff at the career and tech- nical education high school with current technology and equipment. This is the sec- ond year the non-profit Alumni & Friends of Medford Vocational Technical High School, Inc., have organized the musical night and they hope to raise $40,000 for the school.

"Curve Appeal" at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum CURVE AP- PEAL: Style and Elegance in Automobile Design, the latest exhibit at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum, opens May 7 th, just as America's oldest auto museum gears up for the 2010 season of its famous, annual outdoor Lawn Events. Lo- cated in Brookline, MA, an historic suburb of Boston, the Larz Anderson Auto Museum announced a brand new exhibit in the 19  century carriage house, and the 2010 schedule of Lawn Events. CURVE APPEAL: Style and Elegance in Automobile Design will be unveiling curvaceous, aerodynamic cars from the "streamlining" era of indus- trial design, which evolved in 1930's and 40's. Streamlining is a single style based on aerodynamic simplification to minimize resistance to wind or water. The teardrop, considered by experts to be the perfect shape for an object in motion, epitomized the smooth body lines, flowing up, down and around a gracefully curved canopy, which graced the premier automobiles of the day. The exhibit will feature cars from the Ameri- can and European schools of Streamlining, and the elegant designs that would follow. 2010 LAWN EVENTS SCHEDULE The Museum's 2010 Lawn Events season kicks off Sunday, May 23 rd at 10:00 am with Cadillac Day, and the Lawn Event series features a different make of motorcar most every weekend through October's Studebaker Day. People who love cars, en- joy history, and admire this high-rev form of industrial art gather on the Museum's great lawn, as they have since 1927, when motorcars were quite a novelty, owned by only the wealthiest socialites. Now every- one gets to enjoy the company of hundreds of collector cars and their proud owners who gather for each event. British Car Day, German Car Day, the Great American Car Show, Tutto Italiano, and European Motorcycle Day are popular family events. Entertainment, refreshments, vendors, music and breathtaking panoramic views of Boston from the Larz Anderson Park are part of the fun and tradition. For a complete schedule of all the Larz Anderson Auto Museum events visit:, or call 617-522-6547. Admission includes both the outdoor lawn event and the indoor exhibit. Wheelchair accessible, all events are rain or shine. Coro-ante Spring Concert LETTERS POLICY The Post-Gazette invites its readers to submit Letters to the Editor.
