The GOP Attorney General dares tell Scott Walker that Walker must enforce the Affordable Care Act.
The U.S. Supreme Court found the law constitutional on Thursday, but Walker, a Republican, has vowed not to implement it until after the November elections. Walker said he is hoping the next president and Congress will repeal President Barack Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), which is commonly referred to as “Obamacare.”Mark Belling eruption scheduled at 3:08 p.m. It's happened before.
Nearly 30 states, including Wisconsin, joined a federal law suit to challenge the law, alleging it was unconstitutional.
Van Hollen, a Republican, handled Wisconsin's participation in the federal lawsuit, which was dismissed with the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling.
Van Hollen said Thursday that Walker is obligated to follow the law according to its deadlines, according to a report by The Associated Press.
And Belling had this to say about Van Hollen in January, 2009:
If J.B. Van Hollen were an item in a clothing store, he’d be the coat rack. The Wisconsin attorney general’s tenure has been marked by an absence of any indication of Van Hollen’s existence. The only act of consequence to come from Attorney General Furniture was his lawsuit aimed at forcing a state agency to comply with federal election laws. Even that effort was half-hearted at best and wasn’t resolved until after the election was over...
Van Hollen runs for re-election next year. It will be hard for his Democratic opponent to attack him for anything. That’s because he hasn’t done anything...
Van Hollen, [defeated State Supreme Court candidate Randy] Koschnick and others who talk conservative but walk liberal do not advance the interests of anything we believe in. Carrying their water is nothing more than selling out.
