Cuccinelli: Leaders Gave False Hope with 'Obamacare'

Ad Feedback

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli had filed suit questioning the constitutionality of the health care law before the president's signature on the bill was dry.

He told CBN News that Americans who have concerns about it should take their frustrations out at the ballot box.

"No law that violates our fundamental law is appropriate," Cuccinelli said. "I mean, the reason we have a constitution is to govern government. And their complaint, the complaint of the people who like the benefits of the law, is for all those congressmen and senators who voted for an unconstitutional law."

"That's who they should direct their complaint to and to this president because they held out false hope for those folks," he continued. "And if the Supreme Court throws this out, they will have wasted two and a half, three years of America's time with this dalliance in unconstitutionality instead of actually trying to get to work on addressing what needs to be fixed in our health care system."

Cuccinelli added that there are a lot of different ways to address the health care issue but said they should mostly be left to the states to hammer out.

"I think there's a new catalyst now, whatever the outcome of this law both in Congress and in states," he said. "What I worry about is we get Congress saying, 'We'll do everything,' and then shoving it down the throats of states"

"Look, let states work some of this out," he said. "We do a better job in our own states than Washington does."
