Valley Republican Welfare Queens
With all of the yip-yap from Valley Republicans about taxes, you should know that up in Fairfax County taxpayers see $0.83 of every tax dollar go to Richmond where it gets redistributed to the rest of the Commonwealth. I really don't think they care to hear about how high taxes are from a region of the state (The Valley) that takes more than it gives to Richmond. If you are going to be a Welfare Queen, the least you local Republicans could do is be grateful for the redistributed wealth of our city cousins. And don't forget to thank President Obama and Governor Kaine for paying to widen Port Road out to the hospital. Because your Delegate fought that funding tooth and nail.
