Out in Michigan an interesting battle is a-brewin' over the legal challenges to health care reform by the states. Republican Attorney General Mike Cox was among 13 attorneys general to file suit in Florida over the health bill signed this week by President Barack Obama. Now Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, a Democrat, is directing Cox to intervene in the lawsuit -- in favor of the health care bill.
Granholm wrote: "Your statutory authority does not, however, override the superior constitutional authority vested in the Governor to determine the position to be taken by the executive branch of the state government and certainly does not authorize you, as Attorney General, to unilaterally, and without consultation, to determine and declare the policy position of the state of Michigan."
Can you think of any other states with a Republican attorney general and a Democratic governor? This could get interesting.
