26 States Seek Prompt High-Court Ruling on Health-Care Act

Posted By on Wed, Sep 28, 2011 at 2:58 PM

Idaho today joined 25 other states asking the U.S. Supreme Court for a speedy ruling on the controversial Affordable Care Act.

In a formal appeal of what opponents call "Obamacare," the 26 states and the National Federation of Independent Business asked the high court to strike down the law, saying the justices should act before the 2012 presidential election.

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, in an exclusive interview with the Associated Press, said voters would be better off if they knew the law's fate before casting their ballots for president next year.

The states are Idaho, Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
