Health Care May Be Unconstitutional

March 16th, 2010 by Mike Vasilinda

Attorney General Bill McCollum is asking four state agencies to come up with how much a national health plan will cost taxpayers. He says the information is necessary for a lawsuit he plans to file if the plan becomes law. McCollum says the provisions of the bill violate the US Constitution.

“As far as I’m concerned, there is no good in this bill,” McCollum said. “I can’t conceive of any good in this bill and I don?t think any of these agencies can. The state of Florida is going to be harmed, you’re going to increase the number of Medicaid recipients on the roll, in the state. And as a result of that we’re going to have to pay a lot more money out. Fiscally, it will be a big loss to the state.?

McCollum is also trying to enlist other Attorneys General to join the suit.
