Virginia News Headlines: Sunday Morning

by: lowkell

Sun Feb 24, 2013 at 06:51:32 AM EST

Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, February 24.

*Sequester's big gamble: How bad will the pain be?
*Governors frustrated with gridlock, sequestration (Well, duh, stop sending ideologically extremist teahadist types to Washington, DC, and they'll actually be able to get stuff done there!)
*Senators near a deal on background checks for most private gun sales (That's the no-brainer part, now what about restricting high-capacity magazines, etc?)
*Woodward Misses The Mark
*Va. Senate sends sweeping road legislation to McDonnell
*Virginia lawmakers approve sweeping transportation plan
*Deal ends long gridlock on transportation ("Gov. Bob McDonnell, who has demanded for weeks that lawmakers send him a comprehensive solution, is poised to succeed where his Democratic and Republican predecessors have fallen short for two decades.")
*Editorial: When the state doesn;t trust its own papers ("Gov. McDonnell needs to tell his party enough is enough in its expensive, alienating quest to root out phantom voter fraud.")
*Bolling's statement on passage of transportation bill
*Democrats claim win, GOP says not so fast
*McCartney: Virginia transportation deal shows virtues of compromise
*McDonnell leans on Democrats for legacy legislation
*Cuccinelli opinion could jeopardize deals on Medicaid, roads (Apparently, they figured away around Cuckoo's opinion...)
*Schapiro: Jittery over cuts, Va. pols still love to spend
*Editorial: Teamwork needed to avoid sequester ("Local congressmen must move beyond insistence that the deficit can shrink with budget cuts alone.")
*Virginia Beach Del. Iaquinto won't seek re-election
*Virginia's solution politics
*Is the Post 'pro-gay'? (I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry about this one. Since when is supporting the equality of all Americans "pro" a certain group of Americans? Also, since when should newspapers need to care about the opinions of bigots?)

Video: Bobby Jindal shows why he should NEVER be president (0.00 / 0)
Wildly irresponsible, total right-wing ideologue, "my way or the highway." Everything wrong in Washington, DC right now, in other words. No thanks!
