Protests in Va. over health care law

By Washington Post editors

A handful of protesters gathered Thursday at the federal courthouse in Richmond to oppose Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's lawsuit against the federal government over the nation's new federal health care law, reporter Anita Kumar tells us over at the Virginia Politics blog.

Dozens of black-and-white signs lined the federal courthouse saying "part-time workers, women or children "denied healthcare by Cuccinelli."

"It's seems to be our attorney general and our current administration is putting politics first -- not taking care of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia,'' said Jeanne Boisineau, who owns a film and casting company in Richmond and who is a member of the Main Street Alliance, which represents more than 300 small businesses in the state. "They're looking after whatever ulterior motives they may have that may have nothing to do with the best interests of the people of the state."

Cuccinelli argues that Congress overstepped its authority by requiring individuals to buy health insurance or be fined.

I am sure none of these protesters could explain in actual detail why they are against it nor could they show in detail any other of their idiotic rumors and exaggerations.

Typical ignorance in today's politics
