Virginia caved over the weekend. Their RINO Governor drank the koolaid and turned into obama jr.
And the WSJ thinks that the finagling McDonnell did with the Democrats, on allowing for a bicameral commission to decide whether Virginia will proceed with ObamaCares proffered Medicaid expansion, is going to be a tough one to forgive:
Mr. McDonnell even cut an 11th-hour deal with Democrats over the expansion of Medicaid under ObamaCare.
[T]o secure Democratic votes on his tax increase, he agreed to let a bicameral commission decide if the state will expand Medicaid. He agreed even though his attorney general, Ken Cuccinelli, issued an opinion that this is an unconstitutional delegation of authority. Mr. McDonnell says the commission means Virginia wont expand Medicaid as long as Republicans control the legislature, but wait until the hospital lobby gets done working the same Republicans who raised taxes.
Not sure about the list but will comment regarding Tennessee: Noodle-spined (Republican) Gov. Bill Haslam says he’s “undecided”, meaning he’s trying to figure out the best rationale for supporting the increase. Fortunately, the Republicans have solid control of both houses and there are enough conseratives in the legislature to make sure there will be no automatice rubber stamp of Haslam’s decision (if his decision is to expand). I’m not sure the legislature would oppose the governor on this, but I think there would be enough opposed to make it a rough ride for him.
If Haslam decides to expand and the legislature backs him, it will be like the early years of the Geo. W. Bush administration where Republicans had the presidency and both houses of Congress and went on wild spending sprees.
Moral of the story: never vote for a Dhimm, and only vote for a Republican if you are prepared to watch him like a hawk.
As far as I know GA is still standing strong again’st medicaid expansion.
I thought I heard on radio that a bill to prohibit expansion was on the way to NC Gov’s desk, or would soon be. He said he would sign it. (Didn’t catch the entire news clip.)
