State senators and advocates for California health insurance are calling on Attorney General Jerry Brown to join other states in suing the federal government over health insurance reform. They feel that congress cannot force the American people to buy individual health insurance.
Thirteen other states including their Attorney General have filed federal lawsuits against the health care overhaul. They feel that the federal government has over stepped its boundaries and is limited to what it can and cannot do by the Constitution.
Consumers could face higher California health insurance premiums and will not have a choice about their purchase. The state would lose billions because the madate is not funded.
