Statement from AG McMaster on Cross Motions for Summary Judgment in HCA Lawsuit

Statement by Henry McMaster:

“I am very happy with how well the hearings on both parties motions for Summary Judgment (Rule 56 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure) went today in Florida. Judge Roger Vinson asked some very tough questions of both sides. I believe our argument will win out.  If the Health Care Law is not overturned as being unconstitutional, it will cost the state of South Carolina billions of dollars for just the expansion of Medicaid alone.  The states can not afford this law.”
