Virginia U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine along with Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe held a media conference not only to mark the 50th anniversary of Medicaid but to urge Republican legislatures and governors throughout the country to expand Medicaid immediately.
McAuliffe says he is the “ultimate optimist on these type of things.”
Nineteen states have still refused to expand Medicaid despite its track record of success in helping low-income families receive quality, affordable healthcare. Failure by these 19 states to expand Medicaid could deprive more than four million Americans from receiving this affordable healthcare in 2016 they all said.
Roanoke County police arrested Dr. Stephen Rosenoff, 68, the owner of the 202 Market restaurant on charges he abducted and sexually assaulted a 48 year-old woman in December 2012. He faced aggravated sexual battery and abduction charges.
202 Market has had it troubles. River Laker’s striptease brought ABC troubles and a lawsuit accusing copyright infringement on songs performed by bands.
Press Release: Today, Dr. Stephen Rosenoff appeared in the Roanoke County General District Court to answer charges previously filed against him. Dr. Stephen Rosenoff, owner of 202 Market restaurant, today released the following statement through his attorneys, Aaron Houchens, of Woods Rogers, PLC and Anthony (Tony) Anderson, of Anderson & Friedman:
“I am pleased that this case has been resolved and all charges against me have been dismissed. I am so grateful for all the encouragement and support that I have received from my family, friends and former patients during this troubling experience. I look forward to putting this matter behind me so I can continue to operate one of the Roanoke Valley’s most beloved restaurants.”
Dr. Rosenoff said he will make no further comments regarding the case.
