Caww’s link:

Virginia’s General Assembly has become the first state legislature to approve a measure that would block any federal efforts to institute health care reform.

The legislation passed, 80-17, Wednesday in the House of Delegates, after having already made it through the Senate. The bill now heads to the desk of Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell, who has promised to sign it, The Associated Press reported.

Let's put a name in that.

Amendment to require Congress & President to enroll in new government-run health care.

The people are exercising their VOICE through their local reps. This gives me hope for this country. There ARE people out there ready to defend against this socialist take over.

Apparently there are other states ready to go with this too or are in the planning stages...

This is just so American!... I am so proud of Virginia’s leadership...they didn’t just talk or moan and groan..they got on it! Here’s hoping they will lead the rest!

Isn't VA overrun with DemCritter’s?

The northern part up by DC is.

The rest of Virginia is pretty conservative.

They did vote for Obummer in '08, though, breaking a trend they had of going solid Republican in several past presidential elections.

Hi AuntCC! Well, if this takes off like the Tea Party did, the Townhalls, etc. & the Governor's have been saying they need to exercise the State power, and this:

Thirty-four other state legislatures have filed or proposed similar measures rejecting mandated health insurance, according to the AP.

We need to find out the other states & tadaski, reenergize the base to appeal to these state legislature’s

Can we somehow get word of this to veer our direction to the States that are in on this, like MM with your thread? The activism needs to switch from DC to the Thirty-four other state legislatures that have filed or proposed similar measures rejecting mandated health insurance

Your eyes scroll soooo many articles Piper...trying to keep us all informed...if I see that one of your links is grouped, and think better as a stand alone ,I'll usually pull it out and post with some verbage because sometimes the titles are or can be misleading to the actual significance of the article within.

Besides...you save us all from having scrolled eyes! I don't know how you do it all! Pretty amazing. You travel like a speed of lightening!
