Governor Warner Starts with Wrong Premise
Yersterday's Richmond Times-Dispatch features comments by Virginia's Governor Mark Warner (D) made during his monthly radio show. The newspaper begins, "Despite a budget surplus estimated to be $700 million or more, the governor warned the GOP-deominated legislature yesterday against going on a shopping spree for new programs." Unfortunately, no where in the article do they report the governor acknowledging the rightful owners of the surplus that he warns legislators about. That's right, governor, you should start with the premise that the surplus belongs to Virginia's taxpayers. We're not sure the politicians would spend it more wisely, but at least it would acknowledge the rightful owners. Visit the Governor Warner's office, and send him a message.
