First Lawsuit Filed to Challenge Deficit Reduction Act

(PRWEB via PR Web Direct) February 28, 2006 -- Due to a clerical error in the bill and in a move that challenges the bill’s constitutionality, Republican activist and Mobile, AL, elder law attorney Jim Zeigler on Feb. 13 filed a lawsuit disputing the bill. Along with cuts to programs such as Medicare and Medicaid, the bill hits the federal student loan program hardest, slashing a total of $12.7 billion. Zeigler served as President Bush’s attorney during the 2004 election.

 “  All of the provisions of the student loans will revert to how they were prior to Feb. 8 even though my particular area of concern is with Medicare and nursing home eligibility that is of no consequence in the case itself.

“My legal point is that the house passed one version, the Senate passed another version and the president signed the Senate version. That violates the Constitution, Article 1 Section 7. Me and my lawsuit could become the new best friend of the student loan program,” he said.

The differing versions have Democrats and constitutional law experts questioning the legality of the bill. From the start, Democrats have been up in arms over the legislation. The clerical error seems to be a notch in the belts of Democrats who would like to see the bill undone. The error has afforded Democrats the possibility of undoing the bill.

Democrats Want Recourse
Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, Democratic House Leader, along with Rep. Henry Waxman, D-CA, the ranking member on the Government Reform Committee, and six senior House Democrats sent a letter to Rep. Dennis Hastert, R-IL, Speaker of the House, stating that Americans have the right to be notified of the mistake. They requested that GOP leaders reconsider the bill with the intention to pass identical bills by the House and Senate.

With heat from Democrats and Zeigler’s lawsuit, GOP leaders could very well find themselves in a tough position regarding the Deficit Reduction Act. However, many Republican leaders now say identical bills do not have to pass to become law.

“Were putting together possibly a preliminary injunction to ask the judge to enjoin the effective date of the law. And we’re studying that right now,” Zeigler said of his lawsuit. “I’ve had four inquiries from other states about joining this suit or filing a separate lawsuit in coordinating efforts.”
