Going Backward


    Margi Vanderhye has a wonderful op-ed in our local paper. She captures the negative impact of radical Richmond Republicans. One paragraph strikes me with clarity and value:

    Thanks to their votes, Virginians will find it harder to vote, but easier to buy guns. With calls for limited government, this legislature pushed for legislation so hostile and intrusive to women’s privacy and health care that it made national headlines. Our state officials are pro-kids and family unless you are gay. They are pro-science but short change the K-12 education funding to train future scientists. Poverty is rising, so programs for poor families are being cut, putting the next generation’s workforce at risk.
