Video: In Woodbridge, “Walking Mayor” Adam O’Neal (R-NC) Speaks Out on Need for Medicaid Expansion


    Mayor Adam O’Neal of Bellhaven, NC, a Republican who has been walking to Washington, DC in support of Medicaid expansion and health care for rural residents, arrives at an event on health care and Medicaid expansion at the Greater Prince William Community Health Center in Woodbridge, Virginia on Saturday, July 26, 2014. Attendees at the event included State Senator George Barker, Delegate Michael Futrell, Virginia New Majority, civil rights legend Bob Zellner, filmmakers Eric Byler and Annabel Park, and numerous others. I’ll post more video tomorrow, as well as more discussion about this event, but for now, here’s the moment when Mayor O’Neal and Bob Zellner arrived at the Health Center in Woodbridge.

    P.S. I checked Sunday morning and there was not a single article on this important event in Woodbridge yesterday, other than right here at Blue Virginia. That’s right: for coverage of this, it’s all “citizen journalists” like Eric Byler, Annabel Park, and yours truly – so much for the folks who are PAID to do this as their full-time “day jobs.” I know, what else is new, but still…total #FAIL
