McMaster plans legal battle over health care passage

South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster says he and Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum are ready to file a federal lawsuit if health care reform legislation passes.

“This mandate that everyone buy health insurance is a violation of constitutional law.  It’s a challenge to the sovereignty of the state and the liberty of the people.  It cannot stand and we intend to challenge it.” 

The U.S. House plans to vote on the bill Sunday.
