Kamala Harris Files Brief Supporting Federal Health Care Reform

California Attorney General Kamala Harris has filed a brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit seeking to aid the defense of President Barack Obama's landmark health care legislation.

The so-called Affordable Care Act, perhaps Obama's most significant legislative victory since he took over the White House, is under attack as a result of a lawsuit filed to challenge it in Florida. A federal judge in that state ruled in January that the law is unconstitutional because it forces people to obtain a minimum level of health insurance.
