Over the last two decades we have seen the expansion of government at every level. In Virginia, over the last twelve years, we have seen state and local revenue increase 8 out of 11 years, including the last two years. During the same time period, Virginia dependency on the Federal Government has also grown. According to Clifton, Larson and Allen, in most categories, Virginia ranks in the top five states most financially dependent on the Federal Government, which as we know is sustaining itself through the printing of money and borrowing 40 cents of every dollar it spends. If you want enlightening reading, peruse the Clifton, Larson and Allen report, especially pages 12 - 16!
If we really want new elected leadership in Richmond, each of us need to contribute, and we can make that a reality. Please consider $ 25, $ 50, $ 100, $ 250 or whatever you can to this very important race.
