Virginia goes it alone in suit to block health care plan

Thirteen other states joined together to sue the federal government in a Pensacola, Fla., federal court, hoping to block the health care plan now signed into law by President Obama.

By contrast, Virginia’s attorney general does a solo act with his opposition, filing suit Tuesday in the U.S. District Court in Richmond.

Ken Cuccinelli argues the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional because Congress had no basis under the Commerce Clause to mandate health care coverage.

The suit is signed by E. Duncan Getchell Jr. as State Solicitor General.
