Cold Fusion–Dry Water–Hot Ice

From the official transcript, Jerry Kilgore on new spending:

“My better pay for better teachers plan will bring performance pay in the public education system.” (pg.14)

(Note: 2001-2002 Virginia public school enrollment: 1,144,770 students @ $500.00 each = $572,385,000.00 = something over half a BILLION dollars @ no new taxes = Neat Trick!)

“I am going to reward our teachers with bonuses…’ (pg. 18)

“I have a transportation plan that will work, will bring more dollars into the transportation system by using general fund dollars—those dollars that come from you income and sales taxes.”(pg. 22)

“I will work with the Bar and the Supreme Court to increase funding, the hourly rate that we do pay those who represent indigent defendants—I think that is an important step forward for our future.” (pg.69)

From the official transcript, Jerry Kilgore on how he will pay for these spendings:

“We can move Virginia forward in the future without raising taxes.” (pg. 49)

“I believe we can lower our taxes and fulfill our promise to fully phase out the car tax…” (pg. 56)

    Hmmm, as usual, lots of promises, yet absolutely no plans to pay for them. To be fair, there’s plenty of that from Kaine’s camp, just not nearly as much.

    Barnie, you need to read the whole transcript, then compare and contrast to achieve “fair and balanced.”

    Oops. Duh. Never mind.
