Boehner, Cantor, ACLJ among those joining Cuccinelli’s health care fight

More people join Virginia AG Ken Cuccinelli in the Health Care Mandate fight.

From a Washington Post Story:

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and 26 other Congressional Republicans have signed an amicus brief filed by the American Center for Law and Justice supporting Virginia’s legal case against the federal health care law.

Filed in court Tuesday, lawyers for the ACLJ offer further legal arguments supporting Virginia’s contention that Congress overstepped the bounds of its constitutional authority when it passed a law requiring citizens to purchase health insurance or face a fine.

The group attempts to pick apart the federal government’s claim that the individual mandate should be allowed under Congress’ power to regulate interstate commerce.

ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow said the individual mandate “is just completely contrary to the constitutional framework.”

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