4 govs send letter opposing AG health care lawsuit
LANSING, Mich. – The governors of Colorado, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Washington state have sent a letter to the U.S. attorney general saying they oppose the lawsuit their attorneys general filed against the federal health care law.
All four governors are Democrats, while the attorneys general in the four states are Republicans. Thirteen attorneys general are involved in the lawsuit questioning the law’s constitutionality.
Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter, Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell and Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire say in Friday’s letter that they think the legal challenge will fail.
They tell U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder they’ll “stand by your efforts to protect” the new health care law.
