Terry McAuliffe:
Putting Virginia First

Ken Cuccinelli:
Focused On His Own Agenda

Terry Will Build a Strong Economy: As Governor, Terry will work to create jobs and make Virginia the best state for business. By building on our strengths and diversifying our economy we can create the foundation for years of prosperity.

Cuccinelli Called President Obama and His Team "The Biggest Set of Lawbreakers:" In his book, Cuccinelli called President Obama and his team "the biggest set of lawbreakers in America."

Terry Will Support Small and Minority Businesses: Terry is a strong supporter of the work of the Department of Minority Business Enterprise. Terry will ensure that support for minority businesses increases under his administration.

Cuccinelli Would Deny Emergency Care to the Uninsured: On the issue of health care, Cuccinelli sponsored controversial legislation that would allow hospitals to fingerprint individuals who could not pay for emergency medical services. As Attorney General, Cuccinelli supported dialing back EMTALA, the law signed under President Reagan that requires emergency rooms to provide services to individuals regardless of ability to pay. When asked what would happen to people in need of care who couldn't afford treatment, Cuccinelli responded, "human beings will adjust."

Terry Will Increase Support for Home Health Care: Virginia can save money and improve our seniors' quality of life by making it easier and more affordable for Virginians to get home health care from a qualified provider.

Cuccinelli Criticized Medicare Part D as an Example of "Using Taxpayer Dollars to Buy Seniors' Votes": In his book, The Last Line of Defense, Cuccinelli wrote, "We don't have to go too far to find examples of conservatives going astray. One such example was the creation of a subsidized prescription drug program for senior citizens called Medicare Part D. It was the largest entitlement program in forty years, and it was created under Republican president George W. Bush and passed by a Republican-controlled House and a Republican-controlled Senate in 2003. While there may have been some good intentions involved, this was George W. Bush using taxpayer dollars to buy seniors' votes for his 2004 reelection campaign, pure and simple. And the Republicans in Congress generally went right along with it."

Terry Will Support the Expansion of Medicaid: Terry also believes strongly in supporting Virginia's struggling families by supporting President Obama's plan to expand Medicaid. Expanding Medicaid coverage would be a lifesaver for hundreds of thousands of Virginians, a cost saver for the state, and a job saver for our health care industry. This would create at least 33,000 direct new health care jobs by 2021 and provide coverage for around 400,000 Virginians.

Cuccinelli Attacked People on Medicare and Social Security: In his book, Cuccinelli attacks people who paid into Medicare and Social Security as "dependent on government."

Terry Will Defend the Right to Vote: Terry has a long record of defending voting rights, believing that the right to vote is fundamental, and must be defended from voter suppression efforts. All Virginians must oppose efforts to make it harder for people to vote on Election Day, including attempts to make it more difficult to register new voters, or purge certain existing voters from the rolls.

 

Terry Increased the Role of African Americans in Democratic Party Leadership: Bringing African Americans into the leadership of the Democratic Party is the hallmark of Terry's legacy as Chairman of the DNC. Terry founded the first ever African American Leadership Council in 2003.

Terry Will Support Automatic Restoration of Voting Rights: Terry is a strong believer in the idea that once you've paid your debt to society, you should be able to participate in the civic process, including voting.

Terry Will Support Virginia's Schools: If Virginia is going to have a strong economy, it absolutely must have a world-class education system. As Governor, Terry will work to reform the SOLs, support teachers and school systems, and create an education system that works for all of our kids.
