(I just tweeted: "Only 4-6 #Virginia Sen. GOPers for @BobMcDonnell's transpo bill means McD needs 15-17 Dems (out of 20). Better hold out on #Medicaid, Dems!!" - promoted by lowkell)
Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Saturday, February 23. Also, check out President Obama's weekly address, in which he urges Congressional Republicans to stop threatening the economy and to fix "sequestration" by passing a balanced plan of revenues and spending cuts.
The purpose of Blue Virginia is to cover Virginia politics from a progressive and Democratic perspective. This is a group blog and a community blog. We invite everyone to comment here, but please be aware that profanity, personal attacks, bigotry, insults, rudeness, frequent unsupported or off-point statements, "trolling" (NOTE: that includes outright lies, whether about climate science, or what other people said, or whatever), and "troll ratings abuse" (e.g., "troll" rating someone simply because you disagree with their argument) are not permitted and, if continued, will lead to banning. For more on trolling, see the Daily Kos FAQs. Also note that diaries may be deleted if they do not contain at least 2 solid paragraphs of original text; if not, please use the comments section of a relevant diary.
