Aid Money to Help Virginia

Filed under: Timothy Kaine — loudounlady @ 6:19 pm

Gov. Timothy Kaine has recently said the current “spending” package will allocate $1 billion to Virginia in order to help us with our huge deficit.  I have been an opponent for this bill all along with spending such as:

1)$600 milli0n set aside for digital tv coupons

2)$300 milllion set aside for STD education

3)$200 million for contraceptives for low-income families

However, after hearing this news, I am still against the bill, but this helps ease the pain.  Despite this money, the Commonwealth will still be in dept for the remainder of the fiscal year; with planned cuts coming in education and healthcare.

Let me know your thoughts on the bill.
