Virginia Rejects ObamaCare

From The Washington Post via Smart Brief comes this good news:

RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia’s General Assembly became the first in the nation Wednesday to approve legislation that bucks any attempt by President Barack Obama and Congress to implement a national health care overhaul in individual states.

The Republican-ruled House of Delegates, with wide Democratic support, voted 80-17 without debate for the largely symbolic step aimed at the Democratic-backed reforms pushed by Obama and stalled in Congress. The vote sends the measure to Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell who intends to sign it.

Thirty-four other state legislatures have either filed or proposed similar measures – statutes or constitutional amendments – rejecting health insurance mandates, according to the American Legislative Exchange Council.


More distressing for Virginia Democrats was that 21 of their 39 delegates in the 100-member House sided with the GOP in defying the initiative that is their party’s national priority.

This will likely get tied up in courts for some time should ObamaCare pass, but Virginia (and the other 34 states) cannot be good news for ObamaCare supporters. It is definitely good news for freedom fighters.

Frozen Glory

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2010/03/11

I ran across this beautiful photo on the net so I wanted to pass it on to you.

Yesterday I stood on top of a 10 foot frozen wave looking out over the vast icy seascape of Lake Superior. I was shooting footage of this endless field of frozen waves as the setting sun turned them every shade of blue, purple and orange.

Gail’s shot is magnificent.
