President Obama's health care plan is the target of a lawsuit that the Supreme Court will consider in March.

Former Sen. George LeMieux (R-Fla.), has added his name to an amicus brief supporting a lawsuit against President Barack Obama's health care plan, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

LeMieux filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court arguing that Congress acted improperly in passing the health care bill. The conservative Heritage Foundation and several other organizations also joined the amicus brief. The court is expected to hear oral arguments in the case in March.

LeMieux, who hopes to challenge incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) for his seat, faces a GOP primary against Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.) and businessman Mike McCalister. Mack currently has a lead in the polls.
