So now you worry about the fiscal responsibility? 1.5T increase is deficit is NBD. Va is now broke. Got it.

AAA!
https://ballotpedia.org/State_credit_ratings

AAA isn't broke. They certainly have a pension issue but AAA rating is what we consider ~0% risk of default.


The AAA rating is only because VA is "less broke" relative to other states. But broke is broke.


The rating is not relative to other states. The rating is indicative of the likelihood of default. AAA is the highest rating so factually it is not broke. Just more BS that you may choose to believe.

free stuff is not free. I don't live in VA, good luck to my folks and sisters


Ok, so objectively it is not broke. I'll forgive you since you aren't a Virginian. I don't know the credit worthiness of your state either, although I wouldn't pretend to.

Looks like VA is turning into a mini California. Or was it already there. So glad I'm out of there.

I'm reading that the tranny Dem had a war chest over 10x the Republican's ($400k of which came from a single out of state donor)?

VA gets so much outside meddling in its politics. The open primaries don't help at all either.

They're racists and sexists. "Diversity" is code for "vote for any black or woman regardless of ability". They hate white males.

It’s a great place to live and the Dumbs running the state have been lucky because of the infusion of oil, fracking.......and pot. It’s funding all their favorite programs, but they are still clamoring for more. It’s the typical liberal issues......they’ve been building mass transit and it’s been a farce.

California is near totally socialist. After having lived in both states, there's no comparison still.

False premise. Single payer can absolutely be fiscally responsible.

The hate from the people who are pissed at a transgender person being elected, is embarrassing. You should be ashamed.

As a native of Virginia, it makes me happy that this hate does not carry the day in my home state.

Virginia isn't broke. They are required by law to have a balanced budget. Recently they've been hit and miss with small deficits or small surpluses, the vagaries of projecting tax revenue. The problem is going to come with the Medicaid expansion, etc.
