Englin starts campaign to stop Cuccinelli's lawsuit challenging health-care bill
Del. David L. Englin (D-Alexandria) launched a Web-based telephone campaign to try to stop Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II from filing a lawsuit challenging the federal health-care bill that is expected to be signed into law by President Obama today.
"This is an egregious waste of taxpayer dollars that could stop Virginians from enjoying the benefits of health-care reform," Englin said. "He claims he's received nothing but positive feedback from Virginians, but I have constituents call me every day asking what they can do to oppose Cuccinelli's efforts. This online campaign will help them make their voices heard."
Cuccinelli said Sunday that he has prepared his court filings challenging the constitutionality of the bill and will file suit on behalf of the commonwealth in the Eastern District of Virginia "as soon as the ink is dry" on Obama's signature on the bill.
Englin's campaign can be found online . He sent an email to supporters announcing the campaign.
We have asked for a response from the attorney general's office but have not heard back yet.
