Gov. Youngkin’s proposed budget amendments were presented this morning before the House and Senate money committees. Here are the highlights (maybe we should say “lowlights”) of his proposals.
- No $$ for affordable housing
- No $$ for Pre-K
- No $$ for childcare
- No $$ for pandemic learning interruption
- No raises for teachers, cops or state employees
- But tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations!
Youngkin’s budget/tax plans are the typical right-wing voodoo economics that have failed disastrously over and over and over again for decades now – “supply side,” “Laffer curve” crap the rightwingers have been pushing since Reagan. Youngkin also wants to defund government and privatize everything, including public education. @VASenateDems should toss this proposal into Sen. Louise Lucas’ trash can!
