Abbott Says Supreme Court Likely to Decide Health Case

Feb. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott talks about yesterday's ruling by a Florida judge that last year's health-care overhaul overstepped limits on congressional power by compelling people to buy insurance. Florida sued on behalf of 13 states on March 23, the day Obama signed the overhaul into law. Twenty-five states, including Texas, had joined Florida's suit by yesterday's decision. Virginia sued separately on March 23 and Oklahoma filed its own suit on Jan. 21. The Obama administration said it will appeal the Florida ruling. Abbott talks with Mark Crumpton on Bloomberg Television's "Bottom Line." (Source: Bloomberg) (Bloomberg)
