And Sen. Creigh Deeds, D-Bath, the defeated Democratic candidate for governor in 2009, said the legislature has more important business than playing politics with health care through a debate on where federal power ends and state authority begins.

What makes me think that Deeds and the Democrats aren’t particularly worried about that, if worry means “Reduce spending”? No wonder he lost.
