Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on Texas' Legal Challenge of Federal Health Care Bill

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Austin, TX

Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding Texas' legal action challenging the constitutionality of the federal health care bill:

"Our state's lawsuit is the next reasonable approach to protecting our individual and states' rights from an unreasonable and unresponsive federal government. Left unchallenged, these 2,400 pages of unprecedented federal overreach will seriously diminish the quality of healthcare, impose onerous new taxes and penalties on individuals and employers, and crush our state budget."
