“Brown’s Statement on Lawsuits Challenging Federal Healthcare Legislation
Thirteen attorneys general, all but one are Republican, are rushing to kill the federal healthcare bill by filing lawsuits alleging that the bill violates states’ rights. Here in California, a handful of Republican leaders have followed suit and are asking that I join in.
