Michigan's new Attorney General will continue to fight the federal health care law
The state's new Attorney General Bill Schuette says he will continue Michigan's role in a legal challenge to the federal health care overhaul. In a statement released yesterday, Schuette said, "I will fight Obamacare tooth-and-nail to protect our citizens from this constitutional overreach."
As the Associated Press reports:
Schuette ... said Wednesday he will add his name to the lawsuit challenging the law. That continues a legal strategy from former Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox. Both Schuette and Cox are Republicans. Attorneys for 20 states are challenging the new federal health care law in a case before a federal court in Florida. The states argue the law violates people's rights by forcing them to buy health insurance by 2014 or face penalties.
Schuette was sworn in as the state's Attorney General on Saturday.
