More states join FL lawsuit against healthcare law
The political sea change marked by the November elections on Tuesday pulled six more states into Florida's lawsuit challenging the national healthcare legislation -- making it one of the biggest tests of federal authority in the country's history, with 26 states now in line. On the same day the U.S. House of Representatives began debating repeal of the law, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi filed a motion in Pensacola federal court adding Iowa, Ohio, Kansas, Wyoming, Wisconsin and Maine to the list of plaintiffs. The new states are ones where Republicans replaced Democrats in the offices of attorney general or governor, with several of them making good on campaign promises to fight the legislation.
