MEDICAID EXPANSION TALK GIVES US HOPE FOR VIRGINIA LEADERSHIP
News Leader Editorial (Metered Pay Wall)

It is heartening to see the state legislature finally making progress to potentially expand Medicaid. For far too long, more than 400,000 uninsured Virginians have missed out on having access to quality healthcare due to the incalcitrant position of state Republicans who refused to take part in this key benefit of Obamacare.

The House voted to make it even harder for people with disabilities to participate in public life - HR 620 is an “ugly law”

For those of you not represented by Senator Murray you might want to share her response to the House Vote on HR 620

(Washington, D.C.) –Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Ranking Member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, issued a statement following a vote in the House of Representatives to pass the ADA Educati...on and Reform Act of 2017 (H.R. 620) which would undermine important protections for people with disabilities.

“This anti-civil rights legislation is a national embarrassment that would chip away at important protections that have prevented discrimination against millions of workers, students, children, and families for over a quarter of a century. The Americans with Disabilities Act has not only benefited people with disabilities, it has benefited the nation by helping to ensure we all have the opportunity to participate fully in our communities. This bill is a harmful step backward for people with disabilities, for civil rights, and for our country. I view this bill as an absolute nonstarter and I will continue to oppose it at every turn.”
