Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum, a candidate in the state's 2010 gubernatorial election, announced today he will launch a review of the constitutionality of the health care legislation pending in Congress.
For months critics have questioned the legality of a key provision in both the House and Senate bills that would require virtually all Americans to buy a health insurance policy or face a tax penalty. Insurance companies have insisted on the provision in exchange for new regulations, such as a prohibition against denying coverage because of pre-existing medical conditions.
"I have grave concerns about the constitutionality of this mandate," McCollum, a Republican, said in a statement. "Upon initial review, this appears to be contrary to the freedoms we, as Americans, have enjoyed for the past 233 years. The mandate is especially troubling to Floridians who are guaranteed through the Florida Constitution to have ‘the right to be let alone and free from governmental intrusion into [their] private life.’"
