Here's Attorney General Cuccinelli's letter:
Congratulations to Attorney General Cuccinelli, and to all Virginians! As a fellow litigator, I can attest to the fact that victory is sweet!Dear Defender of Liberty,
Today, a federal judge in Richmond ruled the individual mandate of the federal health care law UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
In other words - we won!
This won't be the final round, as this will ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court, but today is a critical milestone in the protection of the Constitution.
I am still fully digesting the court's ruling, so I'll get back to you again later with more details, but I wanted you to hear the good news right away.
Thank so many of you for your support to become the Attorney General of Virginia, and your support since then. Today is a day to celebrate those same first principles that our founding fathers articulated over 200 years ago.
We are proud to defend their work and the same first principles today in the 21st century.
Stay tuned - and thank you for your support.
Ken Cuccinelli, II
Attorney General of Virginia
