Stimulus Helps Leesburg Clinic

Not too long ago, candidate Obama came to Leesburg to speak about the change he wanted to bring to America. He spoke about the needs going unmet and the services at risk in a time of economic recession. Today, President Obama and the Democractic Congress came to the aid of Leesburg in the form of a grant for our local health clinic.
Virginia is getting $5.76 million from the federal stimulus package for five government health clinics.

U.S. Sens. Mark Warner and Jim Webb and Rep. Gerald Connolly announced the release of the funds Monday.

Their offices say the money is going to the Greater Prince William Community Health Center in Woodbridge, Loudoun Community Health Center in Leesburg and Vernon J. Harris East End CHC in Richmond. Also receiving funds are Central Virginia Health Services in New Canton and Daily Planet in Richmond. - WTOPnews.com
So the next time someone asks what President Obama and the Democrats in Congress have done for us lately, let them know they funded our local health clinic this year. This is especially important to remember when Frank Wolf - who voted against the stimulus bill - no doubt comes falsely claiming credit.
