Someday I hope someone will explain to me how the state can decide not to make a required payment into the retirement fund and then crow about budget surpluses.
Maybe in the bizarre-o world of government finances this is a reasonable position. I just don’t know.
Hopefully, one of the readers will help me understand this.
I would urge Sen. Saslaw to re-think his opposition to McDonnell’s plan to sell the state liquor stores. Sen. Salaw’s own constituents are among the hardest hit by Virginia’s inability to enact a competent transportation plan. In addition, many of Mr. Saslaw’s neighbors in Northern Virginia are well traveled and understand that state monopolies over liquor are an anachronism.
Elections in 2011 Sen Saslaw! Personally, I will drive through the heinous Northern Virginia traffic jams to vote against all Democrats if the Democrats really block the sale of the ABC stores. I imagine many, many of my neighbors will do the same.
