/ -- Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com
, issued the following statement regarding the federal district court's decision in Virginia regarding the constitutionality of the federal health care law:
"Congratulations to Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli for his hugely important first-round victory over Obamacare today in federal district court.
"Mr. Cuccinelli has been a true leader in the cause of freedom and constitutionally limited government. His win is also a victory for the entire Tea Party movement and constitutional conservatives everywhere.
"Now more than ever, Tea Partiers and constitutional conservatives must rally behind and support Ken Cuccinelli as he takes his case--and the Gadsden flag ("Don't tread on me") that decorates his office--through the appeals process.
"It's time for all freedom-loving Americans to let Ken know that we're behind him every step through final resolution--and victory--in his case at the U.S. Supreme Court."
