Obama Signs Bill---Gregoire Attacks McKenna

Today is a high mark for the far left as President Obama signs his centerpiece legislation into law.

However, some of the magic has been lost for Governor Gregoire, as she learned yesterday that Attorney General Rob McKenna will join a multi-state lawsuit challenging the President's healthcare legislation.

She told The Seattle Times, "I don't know who he represents. He doesn't represent me."

However, if she follows through with her threat to file a legal brief opposing McKenna's action, he could conceivably have to represent her.

According to McKenna, Washington State will be joining a number of other states challenging the constitutionality of the Obama healthcare bill, specifically the mandated purchase of a healthcare policy and the required expansion of Medicaid eligibility, which violates state's rights guaranteed under the 10th Amendment.

This, of course, does not set well with the Governor. Particularly in that she became aware of McKenna's intention from someone other than McKenna.

On this matter, we agree with the Attorney General and wish him the best.

However, on another matter---the R-71 case coming before the US Supreme Court next month, we do not support Mr. McKenna.

You will recall that we asked the courts to seal the names of those who signed the R-71 petitions because of threats and acts of intimidation from the homosexual community.

Attorney General McKenna and Secretary of State Sam Reed will be opposing the people who signed the petitions, arguing to the Court that the names should be made public regardless of the threats and intimidation.

Perhaps the squabble between the Attorney General and the Governor will be a favorable distraction.

Be Prayerful. Do not be silent.
