Tonight the Loudoun County Republican Committee passed a resolution to censure Republican state Senator Jill Vogel because of her vote for Medicaid expansion. Only two members of the committee voted against the resolution.
Censure of Senator Jill Vogel
“Whereas, the Republican National Party Platform calls for the repeal of Obamacare and specifically states “We oppose government-run health care and seek to protect the liberty of American patients”; and
Whereas, the Loudoun County Republican Committee supports the National Republican Party Platform; and
Whereas, the Loudoun County Republican Committee passed a resolution against the Obamacare Medicaid Expansion in Virginia; and
Whereas, State Senator Jill Vogel represents a portion of Loudoun County and voted for the expansion of Medicaid; and
Resolved, the Loudoun County Republican Committee censures Senator Vogel on her vote to expand Obamacare; and
Resolved, the Loudoun County Republican Committee has lost all faith in the abilities of Senator Vogel, we request that Senate Majority Leader Norment remove Senator Vogel from Chairmanship of the Senate Privileges and Elections Committee, as well as her membership in the Finance, Rules and Laws and Technology Committees; and
Resolved, that the Chairman of the Loudoun County Republican Committee shall cause copies of this resolution to be disseminated to all Republican members of the General Assembly, and to the media.”
We need to hold our elected officials responsible for what they do in Richmond and Washington.
