GOP Attorneys General File Suits Against Health Care Law

Breaking News from MSNBC: Thirteen Republican attorneys general are filing lawsuits against the individual mandate. This is going to get interesting.

The lawsuit — which names the U.S. departments of Health and Human Services, Treasury and Labor — was filed immediately after the president's signing ceremony Tuesday. Attorneys general from Florida, South Carolina, Nebraska, Texas, Michigan, Utah, Pennsylvania, Alabama, South Dakota, Louisiana, Idaho, Washington and Colorado are joining in. Other GOP attorneys general may join the lawsuit later or sue separately.
The issue at the heart of the lawsuit is the constitutionality of the so-called "individual mandate," which requires most Americans to have an insurance plan or else pay a federal penalty.
