McDonnell, Cuccinelli praise Hudson's decision on health care

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli have spent the past 24 hours giving a series of national interviews in light of U.S. District Court Judge Henry E. Hudson's ruling Monday that a central provision of the law requiring that individuals obtain health insurance by 2014 is unconstitutional.

McDonnell told FOX News Channel's Neil Cavuto that the ruling is a positive step for federalism. "This is really a great, positive step for federalism,'' he said. "Ultimately, it is going to take a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court to affirm this."

Cuccinelli told CNN's John King that he hopes the case goes to the Supreme Court soon because it poses so much uncertainty for the economy. "Knowing the outcome is a benefit to all Americans,'' he said.
