From Republican Party of Virginia Spokesman Garren Shipley: Our team has made amazing progress overnight, pressing on to page 2,148 as of 8 a.m. As of now, we’re on track to wrap up at about 1 p.m. The plan at the moment is to have our Chairman Pat Mullins, who kicked us off on Wednesday, […]
Should health care pass in Congress this weekend, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli indicated moments ago on Fox News with Greta Van Susteren that the Commonwealth is in good position to sue the Federal government over this statute using the justification of Del. Bob Marshall’s HB10 and the unconstitutionality of “Deem and Pass”. Also during the […]
OK…Rep. Tom Perriello meant to impugn the entire congress when he said, “If you don’t tie our hands, we’ll keep stealing,” but more truer words were never spoken by the freshman legislator. Whether it’s cap-and-trade, stimulus bills, or healthcare, the Congress has had their hands in the cookie jar since Jan. 2009, and now one […]
From Republican Whip Eric Cantor’s office: Moments ago, Republican Whip Eric Cantor offered a privileged resolution on the floor of the House denouncing the Democrat Leadership’s deceptive use of the “Slaughter Solution.” Leader Hoyer moved to table the resolution.

What do you think was the most significant item that will be remembered from this past General Assembly session? Results will be released in our next e-zine, Apr. 10. Poll closes Apr. 2.
This is just absolutely brilliant:
Taking a break from all-health care, all the time, House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (VA), sat down yesterday with Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar to discuss Virginia’s offshore energy exploration and request that the Commonwealth remain included in the Minerals Management Service (MMS) Draft Proposed 5-Year Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Oil and Gas Leasing Program […]
Later today we should know what the Congressional Budget Office thinks regarding the overall cost of the health care bill, and Stephen Spruiell of the National Review doesn’t have a whole lot of confidence that those numbers will even be acknowledged by House Democrats. Spruiell writes that a little known change to how federal student […]
