As if Virginia couldn’t be humiliated enough by Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli’s biased, distracting, wasteful, political actions that are not part of his job, now Eric Cantor is supporting his suit against congressionally mandated health reform. Frankly we find this odd, considering Cantor and his cronies are part of the Congress that mandated this legislation. Do they not believe in their own branch of government? Cantor, along with his House cronies, has signed an amicus brief filed by The American Center for Law and Justice.
The ACLJ is a right-wing non-profit legal group. Their mission, according to their website, says (in part) “By focusing on U.S. constitutional law, European Union law and human rights law, the ACLJ and its affiliated organizations are dedicated to the concept that freedom and liberty are universal, God-given and inalienable rights that must be protected.” This statement is an oxymoron. The United States Constitution protects us in the First Amendment from being forced to worship the same God as Pat Robertson. The ACLJ also are big fighters for laws that prohibit women from taking care of their own bodies (even in Africa!).
Now, Eric Cantor is joining this fatuous fray. What a waste!
