Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Warner's New Budget

The RTD has an article about Warner's new budget. Its not very specific except for the key number: $74 Billion. That is a 19.4% increase from the $62 Billion that was proposed in the last budget. Do we really need that much more money? I realize we want a 3% raise for state employees and teachers and more road money, but is that going to cost an extra $12 Billion?
If the GOP lets this budget survive without serious cuts, the VCG will be "Raising Kaine" again, and this time it will be a good decision.

UPDATE: Commonwealth Watch has a great post up about the new budget as well.
