Editor: The first three words I thought of when I read that the Virginia legislature had finally passed Medicaid expansion were kindness, compassion and service—words borrowed from Princess Diana of England—thanks to Gov. Northam, Lt. Gov. Fairfax and the Democrats (many newly elected) who worked with Republicans to get this done.
Many thousands will now benefit. I would also ask that State Sen. Black and former U.S. Senator Santorum re-think their opposition. How can they be against providing much needed healthcare to so many?
Virginia is for lovers and not haters.
