More Than Half the States in 'Obamacare' Lawsuit

Ad Feedback

Six additional states are now involved in the Florida lawsuit against the new health care law, bringing the total to 26 states.

The states say the law is unconstitutional and violates people's rights because it requires people to buy health insurance by 2014 or face penalties.

The lawsuit is currently advancing through the federal court system.

"So now we have 26 states. We have two Democrats because we also have Buddy Caldwell in Louisiana. And this really shows today that this filing is about -- that our freedom and our rights have trumped politics and policy," Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren.

Bondi expects the Supreme Court will eventually decide the issue.

"We anticipate he will rule within the next couple weeks, I would anticipate by the end of this month. So we should have a ruling from Judge Vinson, and then I'm sure there'll be appeals and cross-appeals. We will end up in the 11th circuit, and then we will make it to the Supreme Court. I am confident of that," she said.
