Bill Bolling On Health Care Ruling
July 26, 2010
Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling issued the following statement in response to today's ruling by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia to deny the federal government's motion to dismiss Virginia's challenge to the constitutionality of a mandatory health insurance purchase requirement:
"I am delighted that the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia rejected the Obama Administration's motion to dismiss the health care suit filed by Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli on behalf of the people of Virginia. We continue to believe that the federal health care legislation is unconstitutional in a number of critical areas and this decision will allow those issues to be further litigated before the court."
