commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Virginia votes to block any Healthcare Law effects for its citizens…..

This is plain silly…..

These people know this is just for show…. since Federal Law supersedes state law on this issue….

What are they gonna do ……quit the union?

Virginia’s General Assembly has become the first state legislature to approve a measure that would block any federal efforts to institute health care reform.

The legislation passed, 80-17, Wednesday in the House of Delegates, after having already made it through the Senate. The bill now heads to the desk of Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell, who has promised to sign it, The Associated Press reported.

Supporters say the move preserves Virginia’s sovereignty, but the legality of such legislation is under question since federal laws generally supersede those of states.

“We never gave Washington the power to force us to buy any products of any kind,” Del. Charles Poindexter told Richmond’s CBS News affiliate. “Insurance is a product. They’re saying I have to buy insurance.”

The Assembly is controlled by Republicans but 21 of 39 Democrats backed the bill.

Thirty-four other state legislatures have filed or proposed similar measures rejecting mandated health insurance, according to the AP.

  1. This is not that unique

    Maryland has a law that was passed by voters on ballot that states if Roe Vs Wade ever get overturned Maryland will still allow abortion

    Virginia has a law that states hunting will be allowed regardless of Federal law

  3. Federal law does not ban abortion…it bans federal funds FOR the procedure….

    That’s two distinctly different things…..

  4. James B, I warned you that GOP southern governors were going to thumb their noses at Obama personally by using code words to even think about “seceding” see Perry’s April 2009 comments.
