Michigan AG Schuette Welcomes U.S. Supreme Court Review of Healthcare

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette today praised a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to review Michigan’s lawsuit against portions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Healthcare Act of 2010, commonly known as “Obamacare.”

In an order issued today, the nation’s highest court agreed to review whether the controversial “individual mandate” in constitutional, as well as whether other parts of the law can stand if the measure is struck down. Oral arguments will be scheduled for March 2012.

Schuette’s lawsuit, joined by 25 other states and the NFIB, questions the authority of the federal government under the Commerce Clause to force citizens to purchase health insurance.

“This is great news for Michigan and the 25 states who banded together in the fight to protect freedom before the nation’s highest court,” said Schuette. “The individual mandate is an unconstitutional overreach that must not stand, and we look forward to making our case for liberty.”
