"Would the commonwealth's economy be humming as well as it is without all that federal funding?"
An interesting challenge. For another day.
In response to the Times's notion that we should all genuflect and thank Go ... the government for the breadcrumbs we're thrown, a commenter - Josh - quotes from the column and offers this insight:
"The next time you hear a Virginian complaining about federal taxes, remind him that his state receives more back than it pays. Would the commonwealth's economy be humming as well as it is without all that federal funding?"Good point. One these guys will never consider.
You mean we're awash in all this federal money and the Democrat leadership STILL can't make ends meet without wanting a tax hike?
Can you say "incompetence?"
