Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli on June 16 will Webcast an update on the lawsuit he filed against the federal government’s health care law. It requires, for the first time in American history, that Americans purchase something in conflict with Virginia’s Health Care Freedom Act. Three days ago, the feds filed a routine motion to dismiss the suit.
The commonwealth will respond to this motion by June 7. The federal government then has until June 22 to reply to Virginia’s response. At that point, be prepared, as the case will likely accelerate. Toward that end, the attorney general promises to keep Virginians in the loop about the ongoing legal process. Thus, the Webcast . . .
. . . to discuss where we are on the case, what you can expect going forward and the constitutional issues involved. … I wanted to make sure you have a chance to participate in the health care discussion.
Last Sunday, CBS’ 60 Minutes aired a piece on the SEED school in Washington, D.C. SEED, an urban public boarding school similar to charter school initiatives, first opened its doors in 1998. It immediately gave inner city students a chance at educational success that they normally would never think to dream. In a community that normally graduates only 33 percent of its high school students, 97 percent of SEED graduates are accepted into college. Due to its overwhelming success, SEED began another school in Maryland and is working with Ohio and New Jersey to begin schools in those states.
Sewing SEEDs of education and opportunity: 60 Minutes spotlights a success government-run schools couldn’t replicate with all the tax payer money in the world.
The 60 Minutes segment and Waiting For Superman prove an undeniable truth about human nature: The young naturally are curious and want to learn. Unfortunately, there’s a counterbalancing truth as well: Government wants to control and, to that end, provides obstacles to freedom — and its people suffer.
