Why Is Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell Implementing ObamaCare?

I ask this question in today’s Richmond Times‐​Dispatch:

Virginia Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell…says Obamacare is unconstitutional and therefore illegitimate. Yet he has created a state commission to study whether Virginia should implement an illegitimate law. Since the answer does not appear self‐​evident to commonwealth officials, let’s walk through the reasons Richmond should refuse to create any new health‐​care bureaucracies.

Didn’t this guy take an oath to support the U.S. Constitution?
