Bryant Dameron writes:

It is shameful that the federal government working to dismantle the ACA with no real plan in place to cover those who will lose their coverage. It will literally kill people. Virginia should have no part in encouraging those efforts. Our legislature should instead be working to expand coverage to more Virginians.
