Now we have this in Pennsylvania.
Via Big Government:
In a response to Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett’s decision to join 13 other states in filing a lawsuit against the federal health care legislation, PA House Appropriations Chairman Dwight Evans threatened to “do whatever it takes” to thwart the AG’s efforts. Incensed, Evans even went so far as to say he would be willing to cut off all state appropriations to the Office of the Attorney General to prevent Corbett from fighting this legislation.Check out this ironically hypocritical and laughable statement from Evans:
We are accountable to the voters of this state. He [Corbett] cannot think that he can do whatever he wants with taxpayer money. No one can protect him from being accountable.Apparently, the fact that the overwhelming majority of the American people were slapped in the face with the passage of this bill is lost on Evans.
Hypocrisy aside, AG Corbett is already in the process of investigating House Democrats after securing a conviction against one of them. It would seem a bit of a bold move for Evans to get in Corbett's way at this point unless he was truly concerned about these pending lawsuits. There are already 13 filed and with the Governor in Wisconsin taking issue along with a state Representative in Pennsylvania, indications seem to be that the Democrat establishment is increasingly concerned at the prospects of these legal challenges to the health care monstrosity.
