Immediately following the passage of health care reform, attorney generals from 38 states began to challenge the federal government’s sovereignty. The key with the health care bill is it will force Americans to buy health care coverage and penalize them for not purchasing it.

Attorneys General from 13 states have taken proper action by suing the federal government. The lawsuits allege the health care bill is unconstitutional. Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal last week decided that the Cowboy State would not join the lawsuit, prompting this week's Bank of Sheridan / Sheridanmedia.com poll question: "Should Wyoming join the other states suing the government?"
