George Allen reacts to VA healthcare lawsuit ruling

Decision a victory for the rights and prerogatives of Virginians

Case is a reminder that Sen. Jim Webb ignored the views and values of Virginians with his decisive vote for the federal government takeover of health care.

Mt. Vernon, Va. – Former Governor and U.S. Senator George Allen issued the following statement today regarding the Judge Henry E. Hudson’s ruling on Virginia’s Constitutional challenge to the federal healthcare law:

“This case is a reminder that Sen. Jim Webb ignored the views and values of the people of Virginia with his many votes, including the one for Senate passage last Christmas eve, for this unfair, harmful, unconstitutional federal government takeover of health care and its odious mandates.

“This decision is a victory for the rights and prerogatives of Virginians and potentially people throughout our United States.

“I heartily commend Judge Hudson for his sound, Constitutionally-based decision and also thank Virginia Attorney General Cuccinelli for defending liberty against federal usurpation and dictates.”

  1. George is gonna give it a good run! This will be an interesting primary with several really great options going after the Republican nomination. I am really excited to watch this slugfest unfold!

  2. Corey Stewart, Bob Marshall, and Jamie Radtke (Richmond Tea Party) are all considering it. Not sure any have actually filed, but this is probably not all. George Allen likely is the one to beat.

  3. George Allen should be a shoe-in…and I hope if Webb doesn’t run that they get mr unibrow kaine!! that would be a joke!!

  4. There are a lot of Virginians that think Allen is the old school and they want some fresh ideas and a political outsider. But this is a time when we need leadership more than anything. George was a good governor and Senator. While he has some votes on his record that are not up to today’s standards, but I believe politicians should follow the will of the people. Allen (and Cantor and others) were doing what we all thought best on a lot of those votes that now look bad, in hindsight. I want to hear what they plan to do going forward and I don’t look totally at their past record as the know all end all.

    A lot of us have awakened and what we thought was fine a couple of years ago is NOT anymore.

  5. This case is a reminder that Sen.

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