As part of Virginia’s Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) veto power, He nixed portions of the state budget this past Friday, extending his battle with state Republicans who has continually opposed his attempts to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. Virginia has the potential to provide health insurance to 400,000 individuals as part of the Medicaid Expansion provision of the Affordable care Act. McAuliffe struck language from the state legislature's budget that Republicans had inserted in the hopes of blocking any attempts at Virginia expanding Medicaid. “By refusing any and all compromise, the House leadership has turned its back on people all over Virginia who were looking to us to help them and their families gain access to lifesaving treatments and medicine," McAuliffe said at a Friday press conference. "With respect to health care, I am moving forward. There are several options available to me." But that doesn't necessarily mean he will expand Medicaid eligibility using the authority and federal funding granted by the Affordable Care Act, McAuliffe said a spokesperson for McAuliffe The spokesperson continued, "The governor wants to move forward in any way that he can. Whatever that looks like, whatever people call that, we’ll have more details on that in the coming months." No details has been offered with regards to what options the governor may exercise McAuliffe said he would not wait until the legislature meets next in 2015, and he ordered state Secretary of Health and Human Resources Bill Hazel to submit a proposal by Sept. 1. "We are not ruling anything out at this point," Thomas said. Based on McAuliffe actions Republicans may be forced to pursue legal means to block, since they do not have enough votes in the state Senate to override his veto. "If the General Assembly wants to come onboard at some point, we're happy to do it," he said at the press conference, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported. "But I have no illusions on the General Assembly … As it relates to this issue, they have turned their back time and time again." The battle between McAuliffe's administration and the legislature has been a protracted one, and marked by unexpected obstacles: Democratic state Sen. Phillip Puckett resigned earlier this month, which gave the GOP control of the state Senate and the ability to insert the budget language blocking a potential Medicaid expansion. Puckett gave up his seat allegedly after Republican officials promised him a job on a state tobacco commission and facilitated his daughter's judicial appointment, a move that's attracted the attention of the U.S. Justice Department. Puckett has taken himself out of consideration for the seat on the tobacco commission. McAuliffe promised to expand Medicaid during his gubernatorial campaign last year.
