The Nov. 7 election results have the potential to reshape many of the issues currently being discussed in healthcare policy, especially regarding expanding coverage. According to exit polls, healthcare was a top-tier issue in voters’ minds. While Democrats did pick up several seats in the Virginia House of Delegates, Republican control of both bodies of the legislature remains intact, albeit by a razor-thin margin. As it stands currently, and pending a handful of recounts, Republicans have a 51-49 majority in the House of Delegates and a 21-19 majority in the Senate.
