Democrats decry do-nothing GOP after Medicaid special session

Democrat vs. Republican on whiteVirginia Democrats blasted House Republicans after an uneventful special session of the Virginia General Assembly came and went on Thursday without any action on Medicaid reform.

“It’s sad to see that Speaker Howell and Republican leadership failed once again to take any kind of action to insure 400,000 hard-working Virginians,” said Morgan Finkelstein, press secretary for the Democratic Party of Virginia. “The party of no has really outdone itself tonight — they prioritized wasting taxpayer dollars on a charade session instead of doing virtually anything to help hundreds of thousands of their own constituents.”
