VA Senate says citizens don’t have to buy health insurance

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’s more important than that? Much of where we are today is the result of not observing those details.

Lawmakers, he said, should be more concerned about the aftershocks of the recession and closing the $4.2 billion hole in the Virginia budget.

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