Attorney General Tom Horne Statement

"I am not surprised by today’s ruling of the 11th Circuit Court of appeals," Horne said. "It is a victory not only for the states like Arizona that filed this lawsuit against the Obama health care plan, but it upholds valuable constitutional principles. When I took office in January, one of my first acts was to join the Governor on behalf of Arizona in this lawsuit because the individual mandate is clearly in violation of the U.S. Constitution. This court agrees with that assessment and I am confident that should this matter reach the U.S. Supreme Court as I believe it will, that court will reach the same conclusion."
