This crossover update is a partial list of the “Mother Of All Bills” in each category (MOABs) which will cause a drastic change in life as we know it in Virginia! In almost every category below it became impossible to pick the worst bill, however, you are being spared from the full list unless you want it. Full list here

CLIFF NOTES:

SAY GOODBYE TO: Free speech, free exercise of religion, freedom of association, honest elections, any chance for free market healthcare or school choice, reasonable electric rates, right to work, whatever is left of manufacturing in VA, remaining the number 1 state to do business in, and Virginia’s historical monuments. [Our AAA bond rating?]

SAY HELLO TO: Job loses, fewer new small businesses, higher taxes, unregulated on demand abortion, 5 cities with casinos, marijuana ok, dozens of business mandates, [increasing homelessness?] happier illegal aliens, unions, weaponized anti-discrimination, unattainable mandates and expensive tax credits to fight bogus climate change, more ’cause of action’ clauses throughout the code and jammed courts. [This year’s bills will mean ”Full Employment for Lawyers”]

About Virginia Christian Alliance

The mission of the VIRGINIA CHRISTIAN ALLIANCE is to promote moral, social and scientific issues we face today from a Biblical point of view. In addition we will refute and oppose, not with hate, but with facts and humor, the secular cultural abuses that have overridden laws and standards of conduct of the past. We will encourage Christians to participate in these efforts through conferences, development of position papers, booklets and tracts, radio/TV spots, newspaper ads and articles and letters-to-the editor, web sites, newsletters and providing speakers for church and civic meetings.
