Cortez-Masto vs. Gibbons on Health Care

Governor Gibbons and Attorney General Catherine Cortez-Masto are at odds on whether or not the State should join 13 others in an effort to block the new federal health care bill's mandate that every American purchase health insurance. Governor Gibbons on Wednesday directed Cortez-Masto, a democrat, to file a lawsuit against the federal government to halt the implementation of the newly signed health care bill. The argument is the bill violates the tenth amendment which protects states from federal laws that are not covered by the constitution. Meanwhile Attorney General Cortez-Masto says she needs time to read over the bill before making a decision to move forward with a lawsuit. We talk about these issues. Guests:
