Texas AG on Supreme Court's Decision to Hear Texas' Challenge to Federal Health Care Reform Law

Released by Texas Attorney General, Greg Abbott:

"With the Supreme Court's decision to hear our challenge to ObamaCare, the federal health care law is closer to an end. Given the substantial implementation costs associated with this 2,700-page law--and the unconstitutional mandate that it will impose on all Americans--we are pleased that the Supreme Court has moved quickly and agreed to hear this very important case. As the federal district court and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in this very case, the federal government exceeded the constitutional limits of its authority by requiring all Americans to buy government-approved health insurance."
