Ralph E WallSrAdmin commented on Tea Party Founder's group "Virginia Tea Party" on Tea Party Command Center
In 2010, Virginia resoundingly rejected ObamaCare with the passage of the Virginia Health Care Freedom Act.
And the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision prevents the federal government from forcing states to implement ObamaCare's Medicaid expansion by withholding all Medicaid funding from any State that refused to do so.
Further, if a State simply refuses to accept federal mandates (and the associated "bribe" money) to implement ObamaCare health exchanges, then the entire law falls flat on its face.
That's good news, right?
You'd think this would be a no-brainer for a Virginia "conservative" like Governor Bob McDonnell.
Our Republican elected officials have been very vocal in their opposition to ObamaCare and even passed a law opposing it.
And they have routinely claimed to be fiscally conservative, too. So it should be a done deal that ObamaCare will not be implemented in Virginia.
Then what is the problem?
Check out what our Gov. is thinking of doing now after Atty Gen fought so hard to get Obamacare appealed.
Well, it appears that Governor Bob McDonnell is planning to spring ObamaCare health exchanges on Virginians anyway.
So while constitutional conservatives were focused on Tuesday's election results, Governor McDonnell was launching a plan to implement ObamaCare exchanges in Virginia.
McDonnell believes that shoving ObamaCare down our throats is the only option in light of Obama's reelection that provides no chance of a repeal.
At a post-election news briefing McDonnell said "At this point the only logical decision for us is to use the federal option."
