JACKSON – As promised, Gov. Haley Barbour has joined a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the new health care legislation passed earlier this year by Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama.
Barbour officially joined the lawsuit Friday.
“The health care law ... is an unprecedented expansion of federal power,” Barbour said in a prepared statement. “The Constitution does not give Congress or the federal government the authority to force every American to purchase health insurance.”
