The Ultimate in Accountability

Mechanicsville, VA ... The Middle Resolution has been resolute in its opposition to Medicaid Expansion for four years.  The plan put forward by the House (HB5001 and HB5002) to expand Medicaid is an unacceptable solution to ensuring that healthcare is accessible to the most in need.

Republicans who have supported this program, unsuccessful in every state where it has been implemented, have violated the essential principles upon which Republicans are supposed to stand:

- Personal Responsibility

- Equal Justice

- Budgetary Restraint at all Levels of Government

- Promotion of Free Market Principles

As part of our mission, we are committed to holding legislators accountable. When Republican lawmakers fail to uphold these principles, the Middle Resolution PAC will be deliberate in our support of candidates who promise to uphold these basic tenets of responsible government.

Middle Resolution’s mission is to identify and elect qualified candidates, collaborate on free market policies and hold leaders accountable. Middleresolution.org

We Must Stop Nancy Pelosi!

Have you been helped by President Trump's Tax Cut and Jobs Act?
 
Do you know employees or small businesses who are better off because of it?
 
Please help us find them!
 
This is not a fundraising pitch.
 
All we need is your recommendation. Read on and allow me to explain.
 
The Tax Cut and Jobs Act (TCJA) has meant larger paychecks, salary bonuses, pay raises, and increased retirement contributions for tens of thousands of Virginians. You can see just some of the successes by clicking here.

Senate Republicans are to be Commended for Responsible Government

A lot of ink has been spilled over the outcome of Medicaid expansion in VA. On Nov. 8, 2017 the pundits were out in force writing that it was a done deal. They foretold the future predicting Republicans would fold and finally 400,000 people in Virginia would get “free healthcare.” They were half right. 

House Republican Leadership’s Calculation
Republicans in the House determined they didn’t have the votes to stop Medicaid expansion because a handful of House Republicans would vote with the 49 Democrats for the Governor’s budget allowing expansion of Medicaid. The House Republican leadership reasoned it would be better to control the process and develop a “conservative” form of Medicaid expansion rather than let the Governor get “outright” expansion.

The Middle Resolution Gets National Attention

The Middle Resolution is excited to report an extremely inspiring and successful "Behind the Scenes" event this past Wednesday featuring Fox News contributor, National Strategist and Former Deputy Assistant to President Trump, Dr. Sebastian Gorka.

Over two hundred conservatives packed the Delta Hotels by Marriott Richmond Downtown. A grateful THANK YOU to all who joined us, our generous sponsors, as well as Apostle Leon Benjamin, Sr. and the Honorable Heather Cordasco who also addressed the audience. Photos from the event are included below.

Middle Resolution fights liberals

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Rule #13 in Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky. 
 
While Alinsky died decades ago and his disciples—Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton—are gone from the political scene, his poisonous philosophy is alive and well today on the political left.  Last week, The Middle Resolution became the subject of Alinsky-ite attacks when we were harassed about our special guest, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, scheduled to be our featured speaker at an April 18th event.
 
Opponents of Dr. Gorka, a native of Hungary, have made false claims about his father’s membership in an anti-Soviet organization in the 1960’s and 1970’s.  Dr. Gorka served as deputy assistant to President Trump, which in the liberal mind is considered a “crime.” Now, whenever Dr. Gorka speaks at events like ours, the left trots out these false claims in an attempt to intimidate, hoping to shut Dr. Gorka and his audience down. 

We Stand Corrected!

Yesterday you received an email calling out the Republicans in the House of Delegates for passing a budget with the largest expansion of government in Virginia’s history.
 
Unintentionally, our email implied that all House Republicans voted for this expansion. Actually, there were 32 courageous Republicans who stood up to the insanity of putting Virginia’s citizens on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars in new taxes.
 
We have listed those courageous Delegates below and have also listed the Delegates who voted with 100% of the progressive Democrats.

Taxpayers win, but is it over?

Taxpayers won the battle, but the war isn’t over. 

Conservative values and the fight against the largest government expansion in Virginia history emerged victorious last weekend when negotiators refused to finalize a disastrous budget that would have left Virginians on the hook for billions.

With legislators unable to reach a budget deal by the March 10 deadline, Gov. Northam—who called for a special session in April—will now push the General Assembly to accept his demands for Medicaid expansion. 

That’s why WE can’t stop telling our delegates and senators that we won’t accept massive government expansion through Obamacare’s Medicaid program!

Will GOP support massive increase in government

Middle Resolution is committed to stopping the massive increase in government spending through the expansion of Obamacare’s Medicaid program.  Legislators are in the final days of budget negotiations and, for time being, they have not agreed to a reckless expansion of Medicaid. Negotiations will continue and while we haven’t won yet, we have at least turned the momentum away from what seemed to be an inevitable disappointment. 

Middle Resolution has worked with legislators and the Trump administration to let negotiators know that Medicaid expansion would be a fiscal disaster for Virginia.  It would be the largest expansion of Virginia government in history, and we have no way to stop it when it gets out of control!
