"When you hear about a ruling in the appeal of the healthcare lawsuit from the Federal Appeals Court of Atlanta, your ears should perk up."

Indiana has joined 25 other states in challenging a provision of the Obama administration's health care plan that recently passed in Ohio.

A federal appeals court in Cincinnati yesterday ruled in favor of a key provision of the Obama administration’s health care plan: A three-judge panel said the provision of the patient protection and affordable care act that requires nearly all Americans to buy health insurance come 2014, at the risk of financial penalties, is indeed a valid exercise of legislative power by Congress.

The mandate is seeing heavy challenges from groups and states nationwide—including Indiana; along with Florida, Georgia and others, it’s part of a 26-state group that is challenging the law before the Eleventh Circuit Panel in Atlanta. Indiana Attorney General Spokesman Bryan Corbin said the ruling is one of at least three, two of which are still being heard by other federal appeals courts. “When you hear about a ruling in the appeal of the healthcare lawsuit from the Federal Appeals Court of Atlanta, your ears should perk up,” he said, “because that’s the case that Indiana is involved in.”

Decisions in the pending cases are expected in the coming months, and the issue is expected to reach the U-S Supreme Court by year‘s end.
