Corbett joining anti-HCR suit

Published by Tim McNulty on .

Tom Corbett -- as we thought he might -- is planting himself right in the middle of the health care debate, joining a suit with other GOP attorneys general to block the legislation.

From Reuters:

Republican attorneys general in 11 states warned that lawsuits will be filed to stop the federal government overstepping its constitutional powers and usurping states' sovereignty.

States are concerned the burden of providing healthcare will fall on them without enough federal support.

Ten of the attorneys general plan to band together in a collective lawsuit on behalf of Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Washington.

. . .The Republican attorney generals say the reforms infringe on state powers under the Constitution's Bill of Rights.
