DENVER-- Another front may be opening soon in the battle over health reform in Colorado. Deputy Attorney General Geoffrey Blue told the Colorado Independent yesterday that Democratic lawmakers were considering ways to strip funding from Attorney General John Suthers' office
to undercut the suit Suthers joined
challenging the federal health reform legislation as unconstitutional. Democrats, backed by most U.S. constitutional legal scholars
including heavy hitters in Colorado
-- say the suit has little chance of success and amounts to a partisan waste of state tax money at a time when the state needs every dime.
