Health Reform Passes, Now the Fight Goes to the Courts

The House passed the historic health insurance reform bill last night with a vote of 219 - 212 and without a single Republican vote.

Now the fight moves on to the campaign trail and to the courts:

The next chapter in the health care fight will play out not only in the midterm elections, but also in the courts. Attorneys general in three states — Virginia, Florida and South Carolina — have indicated they will file legal challenges to the measure, on the grounds that it violates the Constitution by requiring individuals to purchase insurance.

That's some gavel in Speaker Pelosi's hands! Goddess she looks good wielding it in the midst of a sea of men.
