TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – This afternoon, Attorney General Pam Bondi and Florida’s 25 co-plaintiff states filed their brief responding to the federal government’s appeal in the health care lawsuit. The states’ brief reaffirms that the health care law unconstitutionally infringes on individual freedoms, exceeds Congress’s enumerated powers, and coerces the states in violation of the Tenth Amendment. The next step in the lawsuit is oral argument before a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals on June 8th.
“The federal health care act dramatically oversteps Congress’s power and intrudes on our personal freedom,” said Attorney General Bondi. “We look forward to presenting our case to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in June and, soon thereafter to the U.S. Supreme Court.”
