Virginia GOP Riots In Effort To Block VA Governor’s Medicaid Expansion Plan   1 comment

Remember back in 2000 the Brooks Brothers riot during the Florida recount effort? Well, the players may’ve changed but apparently in the eyes of the Republican Party the game stayed the same...

Administration officials said the House had told them not to expect the budget before early last week. When representatives of the House contacted the administration that Sunday, Father’s Day, House emissaries were informed that nobody would be present at the offices to receive the document. Howell had the budget delivered anyway, and an email was sent about 15 minutes later informing the administration that it had been left at the office, which is on the third floor of the Patrick Henry Building.

The administration viewed the Sunday drop of the massive document to the unoccupied office not only as a breach of security, but also as political gamesmanship designed, in part, to deprive the governor of a weekend to review the two-year, $96 billion spending plan.(Huffington Post)

Translation: In an effort to deprive Gov. McAuliffe an opportunity to review the Virginia legislature’s budget, the geniuses in the Virginia Assembly decided to wait until the governor’s people had left for the weekend before dumping the entire budget on them, thus as pointed out above, depriving the governor’s staff of at least 24-48 hours worth of review time…on top of that, it would seem as though the deliverymen broke into the governor’s office to do so. Despicably convenient, huh?

The response by the governor’s office? Epic.

This letter is to inform you that under no circumstances are you or any of your officers authorized to allow employees of the General Assembly to enter the secure areas of the governor’s office without my express permission, or the express permission of Suzette Denslow, the governor’s deputy chief of staff,” Reagan wrote last week. “What occurred here Sunday is unacceptable.”

“For good reason, it is an area that is surrounded by three security perimeters. Even on a normal business day, very few people — including members of the governor’s Cabinet — can gain access to this suite of offices,” Reagan added, citing sensitive files and materials. “We certainly do not expect to have agents and employees of the General Assembly roaming through these offices on weekends.”(Newsworks)

Sometimes I actually have to wonder whether Republicans ever grew up past junior high…anyone? Anyone?…Bueller?!?
