Lawmakers plan brief supporting lawsuit against reform law
Modern Healthcare

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) intends to file a friend-of-the-court brief supporting a lawsuit against the Obama administration’s healthcare law brought by officials from 20 states in federal court in Florida.

Republicans, emboldened by the midterm election results, are ratcheting up attacks on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) issued a news release saying he would join McConnell on the brief, which has yet to be filed in U.S. District Court in Pensacola.
