On Tuesday night the 10th Congressional District Republican Committee unanimously passed the following resolution on the Budget and Medicaid Expansion:
Whereas, the debate over Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion in Virginia’s budget is causing unneeded uncertainty, controversy, and delays to the approval of a budget, and
Whereas, the 10th Congressional District Republican Committee opposes a shutdown of the Commonwealth of Virginia government; now, therefore be it,
Resolved, the 10th Congressional District Republican Committee supports the immediate passage of a state budget without Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion; and
Resolved, that the Chairman of the 10th Congressional District Republican Committee shall cause copies of this resolution to be disseminated to all Republican members of the General Assembly, and to the media.
[…] 10th District Resolution on Medicaid expansion […]
The light slowly begins to dawn even in the woe begotten 10th District. Take back your party, open it’s membership doors and fight for it’s political survival. I congratulate Chairman Nicholson for putting a stake in the ground in the face of what amounts to little more than accommodation and justified surrender by so many elected officials calling themselves Republicans by name but hardly by creed.
Democrats want to expand government and its control over people, creating dependencies whenever possible. It’s their reason for being. But none of this Medicaid expansion nonsense…really, “entitling” someone to Medicaid is like giving someone a car that doesn’t run…would be possible were it not for cowards in the Republican Party. They think they better vote with Democrats or they’ll lose the next elections. Now, these RINOs will lose because they’ve exposed their cowardice and Conservatives will not vote for them. Why bother?
Our weak party and RINOs on all sides of the spectrum have enabled a runaway and non-responsive GOP incumbency.
Now the grownups have to step in and fix it.
This is exactly why we Conservative Republicans can’t have nice things.
So where is Nick? He spouts off about guns and the second amendment but his day time job is as a delegate and I have not heard any lofty speeches opposing expansion from him. Too busy running for senate to do the job he is paid for, typical swamper!
I wonder if as a State Delegate and wanna be Senator he will continue to remain unspoken about the expansion and other issues?
Enough of the elected aspirations to wealth just by being elected to office.
Job performance matters.
Watch the Republican Debate tonight being held in the Capitol of illegal commerce, Lynchburg Virginia.
What kind of a mad, mad world are we living in when REPUBLICAN committees have to file resolutions to stop massive expansions of unamerican socialistic government programs being pushed by REPUBLICANS??? The world is upside down, on fire, and being kicked around like a soccer ball. Gah!
It’s the least they can do, literally.
Given your limited understanding of politics I can understand your urge to comment, but what does that even mean?
“It’s the least they can do, literally.”
What do you think the 10th CD GOP does? (How would you know, why do you care?) do they fire off resolutions like a drunk on New Year’s Eve?
What would be the most they could do? Send out a posse to string up them varmints? Organize a Protest in Richmond? Have yet another meeting in a restaurant, sign petitions and cuddle around libertarian talking points?
And ‘literally’ is actually the MOST referring to a resolution that is written.
This is a big deal, and illustrates a clear break with the past and with conventional (see what I did there) GOP Politics. This is why we have and will fight to keep a Republican political party.
Thanks for your input, but please head back under your bridge at your earliest convince. I’m not really into discussions with trolls.
My earliest _convince_? Literally? Not quite.
You don’t have to discuss to learn something… literally.
I think you’re missing the context; SCC does NOT pass resolution bucking up slim GOP majority… ostensibly to allow pols more ‘flexibility’ to ‘negotiate.’
GOP Units and CDs choose a different message: ‘Don’t even think you will be able appease the left electorate next election, because our tired, divided, broken, crappy party will most likely UNANIMOUSLY take you out of the nomination by primary, convention, OR canvass — and it won’t be with jokes like ‘Packing’ Shak.
This is our red line, we are at the point where we have nothing left to lose.
Vote as if your job depends upon it, because if you backstab what’s left of the grassroots on this, we will end you.
The power belongs in the state’s geography based party units and the SSC with its factional membership, secret ballots, self delusional power broker agendas and hangers on (with no actual real base voter power to deliver anything at the polls anyway) needs to become organizational extinct ASAP. What some that like residing in the dark call madness others have long grasped as fact that you can’t engage in a fight for your parties political survival by capitulating at every opportunity right up front.
Also face the likely reality you will have to pry it out of their hands by completely restructuring the state party and its leadership. Those that want you to believe that this is just about the remnants of the parties’ Cantor establishment are sorely mistaken as these individuals use many political descriptors including Virginia conservatives and Tea Party supporters. Look at their “actions” not their political “labels”. The light will shine brightest on these actions when it is locally based to readily observe rather than cast from some distance closed gathering wrapped in shadowy context.
Where has your voice been for the last 30 years while the checkbook lobbyists purchased favorable regulations from government that have made healthcare unaffordable? Oh, I forgot, you like having a corrupt government. No, I’m wrong, you love and insist on a corrupt government.
