This Alaska's governor says he will not implement the health care overhaul in his state.
-- John cartels setting a recent ruling at a Florida that the law was unconstitutional.
He went on the record to explain last night -- on the record.
We're not gonna get further and -- federal money -- Frankly what it just.
We would have just been digging it deeper hole -- we -- federal money and continue to take federal money these decisions and that's something that's.
That we don't I'm not good deal at this point given the end and be unconstitutional.
That the decision that the implementation or BM and got.
So that's his position to judge and a Polycom a host of freedom watch on the Fox Business Network morning -- you point also Department of Justice is going back to this judge in Florida now George -- With what is considered a motion to clarify which is common in law well here they're asking the judge -- do what.

Like him governor Scott in Florida Governor Christie in New Jersey Governor Walker in.
Wisconsin are correct in saying since the laws unconstitutional we don't have to comply with it now this gets a little bit into the weeds here is why.

Asked judge Vinson.
To sign an order in joining stopping the Obama administration from enforcing the statute.
While it makes its way through the courts he declined to sign such an order.

Some states have said no he declared it unconstitutional so it -- them play anywhere in the US so the Justice Department has asked him to clarify this will force his hand.
And it will force him to say.
Whether or not the law can be enforced as it makes obviously of course is a big decision out of Florida all these days got together 26 -- 47 that judge did not say.
Implementation of -- health care law must be stopped he said he actually ruled it can go forward correct he did not specifically rule it can go forward he was silent -- that he was a little bit ambiguous when the states who prevailed -- he -- -- -- -- an unconstitutional said stop the government from enforce it just said I don't.

With the stroke of a pen to stop the government from enforcing it if he did that.
The states would save billions of dollars.
During that time that this case thanks to make its way to the Supreme Court so then the answer we need is does -- apply nationally or does -- only -- to northern Florida that's something more weight down and judgments that I have to decide that whether we want to thank you for I think lunch check about a primetime -- -- Fox Business Network freedom watch.
