Virginia formally files suit against the Federal Government
As promised, the office of Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli formally filed suit against the Federal Government over the Health Care Reform package.The paperwork was filed by Deputy Attorney General for Civil Litigation Wes Russell and the state solicitor general Duncan Getchell. They casually walked across the street to the Federal Courthouse with very little fanfare. They filed the suit just a few hours after President Barack Obama officially signed the package into law.
The paperwork is only 7 pages long. You can see it, in its’ entirety by clicking here.
