VIRGINIA HOUSE DEMOCRATS.
Medicaid expansion has PASSED in both the House of Delegates and the Senate of Virginia. The budget that is on its way to Governor Northam's desk will give nearly 400,000 Virginians access to affordable healthcare, and teachers will get a much-deserved raise!
VIRGINIA ATTORNEY GENERAL.
You made Medicaid expansion happen!
So I want to say thank you...
Thousands of Virginians...have organized, advocated, and made the case for Medicaid expansion...re-elected me as Attorney General, elected Governor Northam and Lieutenant Governor Fairfax, and flipped 15 seats in the House of Delegates, and that message was heard loud and clear in Richmond.
Because of dedication...Medicaid expansion is now a reality, and with today's historic vote comes a new era in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

BREAKING: Virginia General Assembly passes budget that expands Medicaid and gives teachers a raise!
I’m really proud of this news, David. My colleagues and I set our differences aside and worked together to truly put Virginians first. Thanks to this bipartisan work, we were able to expand healthcare access to more than 300,000 Virginians who fall in the coverage gap.
I’m overjoyed to be a part of the General Assembly that passed this historic budget. And now that we’ve seen that Medicaid can be achieved here in our Commonwealth, it’s time we take the next step at the federal level.
