Virginia Dems Snub Nose at National Dems

Tuesday, 02 Feb 2010 09:02 AM

Virginia's Democratic-controlled state Senate has enacted measures this week that would make it illegal to require individuals to purchase health insurance -- a direct challenge to the party's efforts in Washington to reform health care, according to a Washington Post report.

The bills, backed by Virginia's "tea party" movement, were approved 23 to 17  -- as five Democrats who represent swing areas of the state joined all 18 Republicans in the chamber in backing the legislation.
