S.C., Fla. Ready to Sue Over Healthcare Deal

Friday, 19 March 2010 03:15 PM EDT

Top prosecutors in South Carolina and Florida say they're ready to sue if health care reform legislation passes this weekend.

South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster says he and Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum will file a federal lawsuit challenging whether the bill is constitutional.

McMaster says that when the national government and Congress "start going wild," the states have to rein them in.

The U.S. House plans to vote on the plan Sunday. McMaster and McCollum, both Republicans, will argue that it violates state sovereignty because it requires that all Americans have some form of health insurance.

They expect other attorneys general will sign onto their lawsuit as well.

Democratic critics call such lawsuits frivolous.
