Colorado Attorney General John Suthers has joined a frivolous political complaint seeking to find health care reform unconstitutional which was joined by on our behalf.
The complaint argues in legal reasoning worth of tax protestors and conspiracy theorists that the 10th Amendment deprives Congress of the power to impose a modest tax on businesses and individuals that fail to obtain health insurance, and that the regulation of health insurance does not fall within the Congressional interstate commerce power. It also argues that it is impermissible to condition government spending on compliance with federal funding conditions.
Those who thought that Attorney General John Suthers was a career law enforcement officer, and not craven political tool who doesn't exercise reasonable professional legal judgment, should think again.
Alas, it isn't clear that the Democrats will mount any meaningful challenge to him this time around, so he will probably be re-elected anyway. Apparently a Democrat is seeking a nomination in the campaign, but has done nothing meaningful to seek the office.
