Virginia News Headlines: Sunday Morning


Here are some Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, July 31.

*A Virginia ‘surplus’ that masks future pain (Even the conservative Kaplan Post editorial board can figure this one out: Bob McDonnell’s supposed “surplus” is non-existent, a Big Lie, whatever else you want to call it; it relies on “a trick of creative accounting,” “budgetary gimmickry,” raiding the pension fund, and lots of stimulus money)

*Schapiro: In debt fight, Webb returns to touchstone (It’s long past time for the Jacksonian populist I met in December 2005 to come roaring back, fighting for “economic fairness” and a society whose health is measured at its base not its apex; railing against the “rich getting richer, the poor getting poorer, and the middle class getting squeezed;” and fighting for a far more progressive tax system that ensures we don’t become the Philippines. So, where is THAT Jim Webb?!?)

*Hurt frustrated, but not jaded in debt debate
