It goes into the fact that Virginia is not meeting the criteria set up by the federal government on expanding Medicaid as outlined in the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare). This prevents Virginia from receiving funds from the federal government.
My friend's comment was: "Hey VIrginia legislators! Get a clue."
He and I differ somewhat on the role of government and such, but I respect his opinion and knowledge greatly. I felt compelled to post a response.
Then this exchange follows between he and I:
I would ask that any and all of you that can have an adult, responsible discussion of this subject please do so. ANY respectable, non-judgmental, and civil response will be posted. Any rude, crass, disrespectful response will NOT.
