Over the weekend, former Arkansas Governor and Fox News host Mike Huckabee held a GOP presidential forum on his show. Each of the GOP candidates, besides Jon Huntsman who declined the invitation, sat down in front of three state attorney generals, Pam Bondi of Florida, Ken Cuccinelli of Virginia and Scott Pruitt of Oklahoma, to answer questions about the balance of power between the states and the federal government. Cuccinelli was one of the first AGs to file a lawsuit against ObamaCare and didn't seem very impressed with Mitt Romney's answer about how he would handle the topic of healthcare in a debate with Barack Obama.

"I thought his [Romney] answer to my question on how he would deal with the president in a debate on the healthcare issue really made his program sound like ObamaCare light."
