Twelve state attorney generals lined up to challenge legality of Obamacare 

It looks like AGS from the participating attorneys general were from Pennsylvania, Washington, Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Texas, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, North Dakota, South Dakota and Virginia are gearing up to challenge Democrats' new health care reform law:

The threatened action suggests the controversial measure is about to move from the legislative realm into what could become a protracted and messy fight in the courts. The attorneys general say they will sue once President Obama signs the bill into law. They are pledging to take their battle all the way to the US Supreme Court.

“The health care legislation Congress passed tonight is an assault against the Constitution,” said South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster. “A legal challenge by the states appears to be the only hope of protecting the American people from this unprecedented attack on our system of government,” he said in a statement.

Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum issued a similar statement late Sunday. “If the president signs this bill into law, we will file a lawsuit to protect the rights and interests of American citizens,” he said.
