Much is being written about Virginia’s odd ball Attorney General. First it was his letter to universities declaring that gays are not protected by anti-discrimination laws. And now his big lawsuit against the just passed health care reform legislation. Cuccinelli hangs his hat on the interstate commerce clause of the constitution and what ever else his wonderfully warped mind can come up with. Every reputable legal scholar who has weighed in on the law suit says Virginia is wasting money it doesn’t have on a frivolous lawsuit.
But lets play along. If Cooch wins his case guess which current law it would negate? MEDICARE! That right, Ladies and Gentlemen, since the Federal law passed in the 1960′s, we have required people to participate in Medicare coverage. So our Attorney General is also fighting to undo Medicare, along with our smoother but just as reactionary Governor. Now I propose that we start telling the million or so seniors in Virginia that Cuccinelli (with McDonnell’s blessing) is working hard to dismantle Medicare. Which happens to also be true. Lets see how long the Cooch can survive.
