From Mark Warner:
Congress has appropriated federal tax dollars to provide health coverage for up to 400,000 uninsured Virginians by expanding Medicaid — so why do tea party forces in the General Assembly want to give that money to residents of other states instead of using it to create jobs and help people here in Virginia?It doesn’t make any sense. Unfortunately, it’s a case of some people putting a rigid ideological agenda over the well-being of their constituents and our Commonwealth. They would rather make a philosophical point about the role of government than give a hand to their fellow Virginians in need.
As a businessman, it makes no sense to me that we would send our tax dollars to other states. This money should go to overburdened hospitals and healthcare facilities across Virginia — and could produce around 30,000 new jobs in the Commonwealth as well as lower healthcare costs for all Virginians.
Please join me and tell the General Assembly: Don’t give away Virginia’s Medicaid dollars to other states.
Republican governors of states like Ohio, Arizona, North Dakota and Michigan are putting federal Medicaid dollars to work in their states because they recognize that doing so is good for their economy and creates jobs.
Medicaid expansion has bipartisan support in the Virginia General Assembly – but it’s going to take all of us making our voices heard to drum up the public pressure necessary to get this done.

For those about to hit the streets and gather signatures for Mark Warner in Congressional District 4, the following document is provided for your convenience.
Please note the following:
- Do not sign your own petition.
- Bring the completed forms with you to our meeting on March 11th.
- This is a Virginia State Board of Elections form ( with some information filled in for you by the Warner campaign ) and must be printed and handled in accordance with SBE instructions. The following instructions are provided by the SBE:
The Petition of Qualified Voter form (SBE-506/521) is a two page document (front and back) printed on one piece of 8 ½” x 11″ paper. When you print this form, it should be printed front and back on one 8 ½” x 11″ sheet of paper. If you are unable to print a double-sided print job, you may print two separate pages. However, you must then reproduce/copy the two pages into one page. The front of the petition contains line numbers 1 through 6; the back of the form contains line numbers 7 through 12 followed by the AFFIDAVIT. If you are unable to print or reproduce this form on 8 ½” x 11″ printed back and front, then call our office at 800-552-9745 or 804-864-8901 and we will be glad to send you a form.
… Imagine your child had a fever of 105 and was not able to be seen by a provider, or that you had to decide between paying rent and refilling a life-saving prescription. Hundreds of thousands of working Virginians make these choices on a daily basis.
I emphasize the word “working” because 70 percent of Virginians without insurance have at least one working member in their household. …

Suffolk Voters! Contact Randy Forbes and ask him to support the Government By The People Act. This act is a step towards countering the adverse effects of the Citizens United ruling, which allowed deep pocketed political donors to gain unprecedented influence in our political process. The Government By The People Act includes a “Freedom from Influence Fund” which will match small dollar donations and provide a $25 tax credit to encourage real citizens to participate in funding political campaigns.
The Progressive Change Campaign Committee has set up links to help you take action:
