Idaho Gov. Butch Otter has told Congressional leaders that the major health care reform plan isn't wise and may not be constitutional.
Otter sent a letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid saying he may take legal action if Congress passes a health care plan. Otter's letter said there would be astronomical costs if a plan passes. His letter also criticized sections of the Senate plan that benefit Nebraska and Louisiana.
All of Idaho's Congressional delegation voted against the House and Senate health care plans. Pelosi, Reid, and other House and Senate leaders will start hashing out the differences between the two plans in January.
