Cuccinelli’s office confirms Virginia will sue over health care

From the Washington Post:

A spokesman for Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R) said this afternoon that Virginia will file suit against the federal government if the Democratic health care reform bill is approved by the U.S. Congress.

Cuccinelli has long said he was examining the legal issues and suggested he would likely file suit. Brian Gottstein, a spokesman for the office, said this afternoon that a lawsuit is now a definite. Gottstein would provide no details of the legal rationale for such a suit, indicating the process is “still being worked out.”

Virginia last week became the first state in the country to pass a state bill declaring it illegal for the government to require individuals to purchase health insurance, a key part of bills under consideration on Capitol Hill.

We are also expecting to receive a letter shortly that Cuccinelli is sending to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) warning her that using the so-called “deem and pass” procedure to pass the Senate health reform bill in the House would open the measure to additional constitutional challenges from the states.

UPDATE: We’ve received a copy of Cuccinelli’s letter to Pelosi. In it, he writes: “Should you employ the deem and pass tactic, you expose any act which may pass to yet another constitutional challenge.”

The full letter is included after the jump.

    I am in favor of the law suit, and I think most people want to see the AG forward with it. However, if you only read the first few comments on the Virginia Politics Blog, you may not think so. Continue reading. The tone changes from irate with the AG to irate with the Deemocrats.

      Yea. It looks like when the Unions got off work, all the anti-Cuccinelli posts went away. Then when the working stiffs got home after a hard day earning their pay and benefits, they took control from the leaches. Good spot!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
