Suit and consequences — Washington State 

Democrats in Washington’s state legislature are looking at whether they can de-fund their Republican attorney general’s lawsuit challenging ObamaCare’s individual mandate, the Seattle Times reports.

Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown, D-Spokane, confirmed that Democrats are investigating the legality of a budget proviso which would prohibit [Rob] McKenna’s office from spending public money on the lawsuit.

“We are looking at that,” Brown said. “We’re researching it right now, but there is no decision yet.”

For his part, McKenna maintains that the lawsuit is legitimate, and in fact doesn’t even interfere with the provisions of ObamaCare that have already gone into effect.
