Outspoken Idaho Representative Vito Barbieri has pledged to continue his fight against President Barack Obama's health care reform despite the Supreme Court's final ruling on Thursday. Barbieri -- who sponsored a 2011 bill to nullify health care reform in Idaho, told KTVB he wants to try to nullify the law again. "This cannot be the reality," Barbieri told KTVB. Barbieri said he's deeply concerned that the federal government is overstepping its bounds and invading the personal lives of its citizenry. Barbieri said the next step for Idaho Republicans was to continue fighting the measure through any means possible/KTVB. More here.
