Scott putting politics ahead of constituents

I am the originator of a petition questioning Del. Ed Scott's refusal to consider the needs of his poorest and least-healthy constituents and the hospitals that take care of these folks who live in his Assembly district.

I encourage your newspaper to investigate and report the number of poor people in his district and the local hospitals who serve the poorest constituents who would benefit from Gov. McAuliffe's proposals to expand Medicaid coverage for poor Virginians.

Virginia GOP Assembly delegates like Ed Scott would rather shortchange the health of the poorest of their constituents and the financial health of their local hospitals to make political points for their out-of-state wealthy donors and GOP tea party leaders.

Shame on them!
