FORT WAYNE, IN (Indiana's NewsCenter) --- Indiana's top lawyer thinks he has an obligation to Hoosiers to challenge the health care overhaul signed into law by President Obama.
Republican Attorney General Greg Zoeller added Indiana to a lawsuit asking for a ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court on whether the federal government has the right to order individuals to buy private health insurance, or risk paying a penalty.
Zoeller questions whether the health care reform plan is going too far.
Greg Zoeller/(R) Indiana Attorney General: " I understand that a lot of the members of Congress think that the federal government has all the authority that they'd ever want, but I think as Indiana's Attorney General, it's incumbent upon me to defend the role of the state and that sometimes requires me to push back against the federal government."Now 15 states in total are suing, though many legal experts believe there's little chance of stopping the law from being implemented.
