VA accepts contractors' offer of help with scheduling

The recently enacted veterans' health care overhaul , which increased funding to the Department of Veterans Affairs and streamlined the process for firing senior executives, also includes a provision that requires the VA to hear advice from a technology task force on problems with the scheduling system for medical appointments at VA medical centers.

Mark Warner , who wrote to President Barack Obama in June requesting private sector pro bono input on scheduling, based on an earlier effort spurred by the NVTC to improve management of Arlington National Cemetery.

Republicans try dodging as contraception and marriage equality work against them

Democrats have the advantage on cultural issues as the midterm elections approach-and for proof, all you have to do is watch Republicans try not to talk about them: When Senator Mark Warner, a first-term Democrat, and his Republican opponent, Ed Gillespie, met for their first debate this summer, it was Mr. Gillespie who had to summon a creative way to rebut the suggestion that he was extreme. When Mr. Warner attacked his views on abortion, contraception and same-sex marriage, Mr. Gillespie used his Catholic faith as a shield.

Arlington Young Democrats: fee spat with Warner campaign was a misunderstanding

Two scolding online posts by the president of the Arlington Young Democrats on Monday gave Virginia Republicans an opportunity to attack Sen. Mark R. Warner as elitist and out of touch. Max Burns, president of the Young Democrats, said his group intended to request a meet-and-greet event with Warner, who is running for reelection and will face Republican Ed Gillespie on Nov. 4. But the group's request was understood by the Warner campaign team to be a request to hold a fundraiser on the candidate's behalf, Burns said.

The Washington Post knows how to bury the news it doesn't like. On Saturday, they began one this way: "Health-insurance plans of as many as 250,000 Virginians will be canceled in January because the policies do not meet the standards set by the Affordable Care Act, a development that Republican Ed Gillespie hopes will boost his prospects as he tries to unseat Sen. Mark R. Warner."
