UTAH WILL JOIN LAWSUIT OVER HEALTH CARE REFORM

Utah will join several states in a lawsuit challenging the health care reform legislation passed by the U. S. House of Representatives Sunday evening.

“This health care reform bill includes an unprecedented mandate that requires every U.S. citizen to buy health insurance or face a penalty. This mandate and other provisions violate the U.S. Constitution and infringe on individual and state rights,” says Attorney General Mark Shurtleff. “This lawsuit will help make sure the rights and the interests of American citizens are protected."

The Attorneys General of Utah, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, Nebraska, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas and Washington have all agreed to file the lawsuit if the President signs this bill into law. Other states are expected to join in the litigation.

###

Let me be absolutely clear here. The 60% of Americans who opposed yesterday's health care legislation do NOT oppose REAL healthcare reform. Remember that!

As promised, here is the list of who voted for what yesterday, per the New York Times.
