    Leyton's First Act Should be to Apologize to Michigan Families, Not Withdraw ObamaCare Suit

     Democrats across the nation are admitting they were wrong about ObamaCare and campaigning this fall against it.  It's time David Leyton got the message and did the same.  If his recent statements are any indication, though, I don't think any of us should hold our breaths.

    Today marks the six-month anniversary of the day President Obama signed the unconstitutional, $2.5 trillion federal government health care takeover into law.  While many of the most expensive, devastating and freedom-killing provisions don't go into effect until 2014, many provisions begin today.

    The damage ObamaCare does to our health care system, our liberty and our wallets, of course, started months ago.  Reports from the Wall Street Journal, the Hill, the American Spectator, Investor's Business Daily and countless others have brought overwhelming evidence to light that the unconstitutional law is already increasing costs, driving up premiums and causing Michigan families to lose their current coverage, even if they like it.

    We are fortunate here in Michigan to have a sitting Attorney General who six months ago, immediately after President Obama signed the health care takeover into law, went to court to stop it.

    Now David Leyton is running to be our next Attorney General and what's the issue he says he feels most passionately about?  What drives him to seek the Attorney General's office? What's the first thing he'd do in office?  

    Three weeks ago the Kalamazoo Gazette asked him just that and his answer is particularly devastating on a day like today.

    If David Leyton is elected as Michigan's next attorney general, he said his first official action would be to dismiss the state's pending lawsuit against federal health-care reform.

    The more we learn about ObamaCare, the more we see it was a colossal mistake.  Every poll taken in Michigan and across the country shows, time and again, that Michigan families can't afford the unconstitutional bill and don't want it.

    But David Leyton's first action as Michigan's chief law enforcement officer would be to intentionally turn a blind eye to a gross violation of the Constitution?

    One of the marks of a great leader is being willing to admit when you're wrong.  Democrats have been waking up to the horrible reality of ObamaCare for months and saying they're sorry.  David Leyton owes Michigan families an apology and an about-face himself.  

    No better day than today.

    Well, this is great news for Michigan voters I would say.   It is very clear where this candidate stands on the constitution.   Could he make it any clearer?   Thank you Mr. Layton.  

    One down one to go...
    ...now all we need to do is check the correct box.

    Besides Deyton ignoring the Constitution, He's a hypocrite.

    David Leyton understands that the attorney general should be an advocate for regular citizens, not powerful special interests.

    Yep, that's rich.

    Typical Dimocrat.  If they didn't have double standards, they'd have none at all.

    Im my post above is a direct quote from David Leyton's website: David's Plan of Action.  And if one follows the links in my previous comment we know that his "plan of action" is deceptive at best.

    DETROIT, Michigan -- Genesee County Prosecutor David S. Leyton has won two key endorsements in his bid to win the Democratic nomination for Michigan attorney general.

    The UAW and the AFL-CIO unions endorsed Leyton on Friday, he said.

    Leyton touted the endorsements as he campaigned today for the Democrats' endorsement at the Michigan Democratic Party convention at Cobo Center in Detroit.

    Well, in this mornings detnews.com Leyton's backers have decided to shakedown the private sector with Jesse Jacksons' Rainbow PUSH Coalition.

    United Auto Workers President Bob King and religious leaders say they plan to withdraw hundreds of millions of dollars from JP Morgan Chase accounts to protest the bank's refusal to agree to a two-year freeze on foreclosures in Michigan.

    King, farm union leader Baldemar Velazquez [FLOC] and two clerics will hold a conference today at the Central United Methodist Church in Detroit to announce their campaign against the New York-based bank.

    "Chase needs to help unemployed homeowners in Michigan," King said in a statement.

    Mr. King.  The banks were already forced to help homeowners in Michigan and the rest of the nation.

    The statement said King is prepared to withdraw all of the UAW's funds from the bank.

    "The words of Chase officials that they are willing to help the thousands who are living in undervalued homes and facing possible eviction is unconvincing in light of their refusal to seriously consider a moratorium on foreclosures," said Pastor Alexander Bullock with the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. King's involvement further underscores his promise that he would increase the social activism of the UAW, which has focused in recent years on preserving the hard-won gains of current and retired workers.

    Organizers are calling on people to close their Chase accounts and cancel Chase credit cards in a campaign that tries to tap into the popular frustration with big banks, which received federal aid during the financial crisis.

    Yes folks, the organized labor special interest juggernaut is a hungry beast.  It was just last year that $22 billion of our tax monies fed the UAW a majority ownership of Chrysler with a seat on the Board as part of their "turn around plan".  Now the UAW in partnership with shakedown extraordiniare Jesse Jackson, is going after a financial institution for two years of free homeownership.

    I can only begin to envision the outcome if the UAW's chosen candidate Leyton should happen to take control of the helm of Michigan's top Law post.
