State legislatures are getting fired up over health insurance. In Virginia on Monday, the conservative Tea Party successfully spurred lawmakers in Richmond to endorse measures opposing any proposed federal government healthcare insurance mandates. On Tuesday, Kansas joined the fray, also opposing any insurance mandate. At least 31 states have enacted similar measures and several more are expected to follow.
