Claire’s Letter to the Editor

It would be my wish that every Republican member of the Virginia House of Delegates be required to read the two stories in Saturday's paper - focusing on the health and well being of the poor in southwest Virginia and their attendance at a yearly free clinic. These are folks who have worked their entire lives...the working poor.  But alas, in voting not to allow Medicaid expansion it appears that the Republicans who control the house have never met a poor person they liked.  Or wait, perhaps they've never met a poor person. These members are an embarrassment not only to the Commonwealth, but to the nation.
