Obamacare lawsuit will cost Florida $6,000

UPDATED: Attorney General Bill McCollum's lawsuit against President Barack Obama concerning the national health care legislation will cost Florida $6,000.

The terms of the cost sharing agreement between the 10 states who filed suit give a break to small population states -- North and South Dakota -- which pay just $1,000. The remaining eight states will each contribute $6,000 toward legal fees incurred by Baker and Hostetler lawyers David Rivkin and Lee Casey, who are charging $250 an hour. The total cost is capped at $50,000. So if you do the math, it's about $30 an hour, McCollum's office said.
