Note from RCDC Chair: Reluctance of Republicans to adopt Medicaid expansion proposals

The reluctance of the House of Delegates Republican members to adopt either of the Medicaid expansion proposals before them is starting to have real world consequences: note the attached letter from the CEO of the Culpeper Hospital. The announced closure of the Pennington Gap hospital is at least partially because of the failure to expand Medicaid.

I urge you to contact Delegate Webert and Senator Obenshain and encourage them to find a way to adopt Medicaid Expansion.

Ross O’Donaghue, RCDC Chair

A note from the RCDC Chair

Rappahannock County Board of Supervisors Declines Motion to Request the Attorney General’s resignation or censure. 

Many thanks to all of the Rappahannock Democrats who phoned or emailed their supervisor to urge them to not support the proposed resolution.  Special thanks to all who attended the BOS meeting who articulately and cogently expressed their opposition to the proposed resolution.

Tonight’s general meeting (7:00 pm in the Library) has attracted a representative from Mark Warner’s campaign who is eager to obtain signatures for Senator Warner’s campaign petition and will give us an update on the campaign.

Chairman, Rappahannock County Democratic Committee
