States file Supreme Court appeal in Obama's health care overhaul

(KLTV) - The 26 states that have sued to overturn President Barack Obama's health care overhaul have filed a supreme court appeal.

They are pressing for a speedy ruling to the "grave constitutional questions" surrounding the law.

But the Justice Department is filing its own appeal, asking the Supreme Court to uphold the constitutionality of the law.

The word from justice is the Obama Administration's first indication that it wants an up-or-down ruling before the 2012 presidential election.
