Sen. Bill Stanley Launches Healthcare Charade after Writing Amendment Blocking 400K Virginians from Health Insurance

smason@vademocr...
Today, Senator Bill Stanley will embark on a healthcare tour in Southside Virginia in an attempt to cover up the fact that he has done more than anyone in the General Assembly to prevent hundreds of thousands of Virginians from getting the quality healthcare they need and deserve.
 
While nearly 19,000 Virginians in Stanley's district alone would receive health insurance if Virginia closes the coverage gap, Senator Stanley put partisan politics ahead of the well-being of his constituents this session when he introduced an amendment moving the General Assembly further away from coming to an agreement on how to cover 400,000 uninsured Virginians.
 
Senator Stanley has made it clear he has no intention of closing the coverage gap, and this healthcare tour is merely a charade to obscure the fact that Senator Stanely cares more about partisan ideology than the health and economic well-being of the Commonwealth.

Democratic Party of Virginia Executive Director Robert Dempsey stated, "Virginians won't stand for Senator Stanley's political charade that leaves the health of 400,000 uninsured Virginians in the balance. It is clear that Senator Stanley has no intention of closing the coverage gap--in fact, he has done more than anyone in the General Assembly to make sure hundreds of thousands of Virginians remain without healthcare."

In response, the Gillespie camp first told the Washington Post that the switch was because “tele-town-halls are easier for people to participate in who couldn’t otherwise make it out to a meeting.”  But then, Ed Gillespie seems to have changed his tune opting to tell the Northern Virginian Daily that the move was a calculated effort. The tea party organization even stated that their meeting became a private, closed event in order "to have a serious discussion without this being twisted by the press."

What Does Ed Gillespie Not Want You To Hear?

Last week, the Northern Shenandoah Valley Patriots Tea Party invited community members to an event billed as a town hall and forum with Ed Gillespie and Barbara Comstock. Oddly enough, just recently, the Northern Shenandoah Valley Patriots felt compelled to make the speaking engagement "more private" due to the possibility of "liberal press" and "supporters of the opponents" who could be in attendance.
