Steve Six is Not in Kansas Anymore*
By Hadley Heath
Former Kansas Attorney General Steve Six had refused to sue the federal government over the health reform law. But now a new Attorney General, Derek Schmidt, has filed a formal request to add Kansas to the multistate case in Florida. By my tally, the number of plaintiff states in the Florida case is now up to 23. Along with Virginia and Oklahoma, who are suing in separate individual cases, this makes for a grand total of 25 states. Half of the states in the union are suing the federal government.
*Steve Six may still be in Kansas, but he's no longer the Attorney General.
