The Commonwealth of Virginia has once again taken a first step into history. With the passage of HB10, Virginia Health Care Freedom Act, we have effectively told the Federal government and the clowns running it to buzz off on their Health Care takeover. FOX news reported it this evening and called it an "Obama Smackdown". The vote on the floor of the House is as follows:
YEAS--Albo, Anderson, Armstrong, BaCote, Barlow, Bell, Richard P., Bell, Robert B., Byron, Carrico, Cleaveland, Cline, Cole, Comstock, Cosgrove, Cox, J.A., Cox, M.K., Crockett-Stark, Dance, Ebbin, Edmunds, Garrett, Gear, Gilbert, Greason, Griffith, Howell, A.T., Hugo, Iaquinto, Ingram, James, Janis, Joannou, Johnson, Jones, Keam, Kilgore, Knight, Landes, LeMunyon, Lewis, Lingamfelter, Lohr, Loupassi, Marshall, D.W., Marshall, R.G., Massie, May, McClellan, McQuinn, Merricks, Miller, J.H., Miller, P.J., Morefield, Morgan, Morrissey, Nixon, Nutter, O'Bannon, Oder, Orrock, Peace, Phillips, Pogge, Poindexter, Pollard, Purkey, Putney, Rust, Scott, E.T., Sherwood, Stolle, Tata, Tyler, Villanueva, Ward, Ware, O., Ware, R.L., Watts, Wright, Mr. Speaker--80.
