Three Cheers for the Virginia GOP

By a party-line vote, the Virginia Legislature has turned down $125M in stimulus money from the Obama Administration because its strings obligate the state to change the way it distributes unemployment benefits. Bully for them. This is the same argument some Republican governors have been making, and it is a good one.

Nice to know that despite our leftward leaning vote turn out in the last national election, we haven't lost our balance within the commonwealth. I've always been proud to be a Virginian. And I'm proud that our elected legislators upheld the commonwealth's longstanding reluctance to become a pawn of the national legislature. bravo.
