Gov. Bob McDonnell says Republican governors are at risk of being undermined by "unrealistic and irresponsible" policies coming from Washington, including the federal health care overhaul.
McDonnell delivered the Republican weekly address Saturday, just days after the one-year anniversary of the passage of the health care legislation.
This is the second time McDonnell has delivered the Republican weekly address. The last time was August 2009.
McDonnell said passage of the health care package had more do to with expanding control by the federal government than reforming health care.
McDonnell called the legislation "a budget buster" and "unconstitutional." Virginia has challenged the legislation in court.
McDonnell called on fellow Republicans to repeal the health care legislation, which the House of Representatives has voted to do.
