Our esteemed new Attorney General Phil Weiser waited a hot minute before reasserting his office’s mission “to provide professional, ethical, and independent legal services to the State of Colorado and its citizens, to promote respect for law and access to the justice system, to ensure the fair and open exercise of government, and to protect and advance the public interest.”
He’s suing the Trump administration.
First, he’s going to appeal a federal judge’s decision that found Obamacare unconstitutional.
We suppose it would be too much to ask for a better health care system, one that we can actually afford and actually covers our costs.
Maybe we missed it, but we don’t remember Coloradans clamoring to be fined a thousand plus dollars for refusing to buy into a worthless health insurance policy.
Weiser told the Colorado Sun he also wants to sue to stop businesses that object on religious or moral reasons from exempting birth control pills from coverage.
But why limit protected coverage to just birth control? There’s a whole host of necessary medications that insurance businesses refuse to pay for.
Also on his list, Weiser plans to sue over a census question that would ask whether residents are U.S. citizens, and vehicle emission standards.
While he’s at it, he’s going to review ongoing lawsuits the state joined under the leadership of former Attorney General Cynthia Coffman.
You know, the ones Democrats screamed about being too political, like oil and gas regulations.
What remains to be seen, will Republicans rise up and voice their dissent with the new attorney general over his Sue Trump Agenda?
