Cuccinelli to headline rally against health care act in Washington

Ken Cuccinelli, the nation’ first attorney general to file a lawsuit challenging the 2010 federal health care law, will speak at the “Road
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (Bill O’Leary/The Washington Post)
to Repeal Rally’ Saturday in Washington.

Rally organizers say they will gather to protest “Obamacare’s trampling on individual liberty” just two days before the U.S. Supreme Court takes up the case on Monday.

Cuccinelli will be joined by former presidential candidate Herman Cain, several members of Congress and tea party activists from across the country.

“We are excited these defenders of liberty will be joining Patriots from across the country to protest Obamacare’s assault on our individual liberties,” said Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder and national coordinator of Tea Party Patriots. “This rally is the first and important step to repealing the law.”

The Supreme Court will begin hearing arguments Monday, three days after the two-year anniversary of the passage of the bill, in a case that stemmed from several states.

A federal appeals court in September tossed out C uccinelli’s case. He appealed to the Supreme Court, but it has not acted.

Cuccinelli will offer analysis of the health care arguments made before the U.S. Supreme Court next week following each day's hearing.
