Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli appeared with Neil Cavuto on the Fox Business Network last night and answered questions from the anchor who appeared stunned Virginia had gone so far so fast in seeking to protect itself from federal intrusion in individuals' health care decisions. He was referring, of course, to the quick work the General Assembly so far has made in advancing the Virgina Health Care Freedom Act. To Cuccinelli, it's not that at all — defending liberty is not far and speed is good in that regard. The AG said it was nice to see "freedom break out again" and for Virginia to be, most likely, the first state to pass such a law, leading now for liberty as it did in the 1700s. He also sounded ready and willing for the fight Cavuto predicted from the feds if and when Virginia asserts itself under the 10th Amendment when and if the central government mandates that individuals purchase particular products.
Cuccinelli: It's nice to have a bipartisan outbreak of freedom.
