One of the attorneys general who is a party to a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the recently-passed healthcare reform overhaul said Tuesday he expects it to reach the Supreme Court.
In an interview on MSNBC, Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning (R) said that he believes the challenge filed Tuesday will reach the nation's highest court as soon as a year from now.
The 13 Republican attorneys general, led by Florida AG Bill McCollum, filed the suit the same day President Barack Obama passed the healthcare bill into law.
Bruning's words suggest that should the district court find that the bill does not violates the constitution, they would appealed the decision until it reaches the high court.
But if the lower court finds that it does violate the Constitution, supporters of the new law would likely challenge the result as well.
