America's health care future lies in the balance, and Virginia's Solicitor General E. Duncan Getchell, Jr., is one of the key figures in the legislative battle surrounding "Obamacare." The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the subject of numerous lawsuits; Getchell was instrumental in the Commonwealth of VA v. Sebelius case, where the State of Virginia claimed the new health care bill infringed on states' rights.
Getchell speaks of the current litigation between the 28 states, including Virginia, and the U.S. Government.
