Great stuff from Qasim Rashid:

A quick post for Virginia conservatives (and progressives) as we approach Election Day, and why you should vote for Terry McAuliffe for Governor. Please do read and share.

If you’re one of the now 500,000+ Virginians who have life saving healthcare access due to expanded Medicaid, Democrats did that.

If you’re one of 50,000 Virginians suffering from drug or alcohol addiction but now have affordable treatment due to Medicaid, Democrats did that.

If you’re one of 781,000 Virginians who need insulin to live, and are grateful that insulin is capped at $50 a month instead of $700 a month, Democrats did that. The GOP could have done this at any time they were in power, but they didn’t. Democrats did.

If you’re grateful that Virginia raised the minimum wage, and want it to get to at least $15/hour, Democrats did that.

If you’re grateful teacher pay increased, and want it to continue to increase above the national standard, Democrats did that.

If you’re enjoying early voting, mail in ballot voting, and voting on the weekends—Democrats did that. The Virginia Voting Rights Act keeps elections secure, voting accessible, and lets more people participate in our democracy. That’s a good thing. And Democrats did that.

Decriminalizing cannabis, trusting women on reproductive health, decreasing excessive standardized testing for our children, making Virginia the #1 State to do business for several years in a row & growing our economy—all happened under Democrats in office. Democrats did that.

If you or a loved one was formerly incarcerated for a drug offense, VA Dems changed the law to ensure you now have access to SNAP and TANF and financial aid, whereas under GOP, Virginians were blocked. Democrats restored dignity because it is a human right. Democrats did that.

Under TerryMcAuliffe, Hala Ayala, and Mark Herring, Democrats will continue to fight for working families, ensure a strong economy with good paying Union jobs, and protect our children, our climate, and our communities.
That’s the proven record. That’s what Democrats do.

So if you see this post, please share with your family and loved ones in Virginia. We need to ensure every registered voter exercises their right to vote. We have the chance to take Virginia to the next level for working families. That’s what Democrats do. Let’s go!
