From the article: "Real solutions to the fiscal crisis won't be easy. But consideration of long-term structural changes to generate revenues -- including some tax increases -- must begin right away." There ya go fellas a brilliant solution to a difficult problem. "Just Raise Taxes". [url]http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A19015-2002Feb15.html[/url]

It would have to pass the republican house of delegates. They better not vote for it as long as they wish to be re-elected.

We tried that here in Maryland, raised taxes, then raised them some more. Guess what? We still have a budget problem, but in the meanwhile all the productive people have moved to other states. GunLvr

What I am scared off is that Warner will try to "fix" the problem in four short years and then step on to bigger and better things. That's the problem the a one term politician, he is not accountable for what goes on under his watch. First thing he'll do is freeze the cost of living raise to ALL state employees and then take the State Police helicopter to a fundriser dinner!

Ummm.... Dude, we have a lottery. The lottery is the stock market for poor, stupid people. Those who have any sense save their money and invest it, but poor people ain't poor because the world isn't fair, they're poor because they make bad decisions. Just like the government.
