 Is the federal government usurping states’ powers? 
 A
rizona enacted Medicaid cuts early this year only to have the action countermanded by the Obamaadministration’s recently passed health care law. Arizona is now one of 20 states challenging thenew law as unconstitutional. Meanwhile, the state is also tangling with the federal government over national immigration policy. Thecases highlight the recurrence of high-profile clashes over federalpower and state prerogatives playing out against the backdrop of sharp political attacks on the administration and declining confi-dence in government at all levels. One federal judge has upheldthe new health care law, but the states’ suits challenging the laware advancing. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court is set to hear achallenge by business and civil rights groups to Arizona’s toughlaw on hiring illegal aliens even as the state is appealing a lowercourt ruling that blocks its new measure requiring local lawenforcement officers to check the immigration status of anyonearrested, detained or stopped for possible law violations.
