Politifact Virginia: VA GOP says McAuliffe budget would 'raid' school funds for Obamacare

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

In this week's PolitiFact Virginia report, Virginia Republicans are doing their best to attack Terry McAuliffe's budget plan - that includes a major expansion of Medicaid.

Take a look at this tweet from VA-GOP: "Not only did the GOP read your budget, we found the part where you were going to raid school, other $$ 4 Obamacare in VA.,"

So does McAuliffe's Medicaid plan pull money from other places to help pay for the plan? 

According to PolitiFact, that claim is mostly false. The quibble is over an amendment that would allow the budget office to move funds in and out of the medicaid fund.
