"The health care reform legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives this last night clearly violates the U.S. Constitution and infringes on each state's sovereignty," [Florida Attorney General Bill] McCollum said in a statement. [...]If this can't be undone in the courts, then we may have run out of nearly all of our options. I pray that's not the case.
Constitutional lawyers have questioned whether such a lawsuit could be successful, since federal law trumps state law. But opponents are looking to get around that by questioning the law's constitutionality.
McCollum is joining with attorneys general from South Carolina, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alabama, Washington, Pennsylvania, Utah, Texas and Nebraska.
