The attorneys general of South Carolina and Florida say they are ready to sue if the health care reform bill passes in Congress this weekend. Both say they will file a federal lawsuit challenging the bill's constitutionality. South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster says when the national governament and Congress "start going wild", the states have to rein them in. Both are Republicans and will argue it violates state sovereignty because the bill requires all Americans to have health insurance. Democrats call the attempt frivolous.
