GOVERNOR McDONNELL will HAVE TO call a SPECIAL SESSION to STOP MEDICAID EXPANSION or CUCCINELLI will have to PERSUADE the GOP members of the REFORM COMMISSION to say NO!

This blog started to try to help Del. Chris Peace.  I am not sure it will do so.  Might stir up a hornet’s nest like I did last Monday!  But here it goes: There was a charge made (I prefer not to say where) that Delegate Peace voted for the Medicaid expansion.  (That charge has […]

I APPEAL to GOVERNOR McDONNELL – PLEASE VETO BOTH the MEDICAID EXPANSION and the TRANSPORTATION TAX BILLS!

A person I admire very much who I know is a strong follower of Christ asked me today:  Is Governor McDonnell a honorable man?   Is he a believer [in Christ]? I answered (after a long pause) YES, I believe the governor is a honorable man and is a believer.  I am very disappointed with the […]

Holding Democrats Responsible for Failing to Deal With Tax Cuts

They fled town without a vote on extending the Bush Tax Cuts. The only possibility of relief from a massive tax hike will come by way of a special session after the election. This is shaping up to be a lame duck session of epic proportion. Some might even call it a sour grapes session […]

Why Democrats Cannot Vote on Tax Cuts Before the Election

Take your pick: Damned if you do, damned if you don’t or stuck between a rock and a hard place. Either saying is appropriate for the dilemma Democrats now find themselves in as far as extending the Bush Tax Cuts. On the one hand, raising taxes in the current economy is really not an option. […]

LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER SPECIAL SESSION MAY BE NEEDED…

The front page of the Richmond Times-Dispatch confirmed my worst fears:  VA. FACES SHORTAGE OF JUDGES I had feared as such and even tried to find a face-saving way to restore the money for the judiciary:  Partisan politics.  I argued we need to use this time to appoint qualified Republican judges.  But no action was taken.  […]

A POSSIBLE TACTICAL ERROR?

We’ll find out if anyone in the Governor’s office reads this blog! I read that the Virginia General Assembly has frozen the judges position until 2012; no new judges can be appointed.  I understand budgetary issues but judgeships are a prime political plum for either party.  While I agree that only the best candidates should […]

Ken Cuccinelli Update On Special Session

Cuccinelli was the first statewide candidate to recognize the impact that the U.S. Supreme Court’s Melendez decision would have on prosecutions in Virginia. In essence, the Court’s ruling made it far easier for defense attorneys to compel live testimony by forensic analysts in drug and DUI trials. Tyler Whitley reported today that in July, 2008 […]
