(CNSNews.com) – Virginia’s new Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is trying to “force-feed the people of Virginia a federal government-based healthcare policy that is wreaking havoc with everything it touches,” said State Sen. Bryce Reeves (R-Spotsylvania) in a statement released on Wednesday.
The Virginia General Assembly ended its 60-day legislative session on March 8, unable to pass a two-year budget because of disagreements over Medicaid expansion. Gov. McAuliffe, who backs Medicaid expansion, announced on the same day that he would call a special session of the General Assembly on March 24 to resolve the issues.
