They push us to go green, we buy the damn Hybird vehicle. The federalgovernment gave a tax incentives. Bob McDonnelthen puts a tax on ownership of that car. Now that we have them they add $100 per year. I hope Bob never gets elected to another political office again.

"It gets a lot done," said Senate Democratic Leader Richard Saslaw, "It's going to have to be tweaked in a few years, but by and large the major work's been done."

I wonder what he means by that...(duh).

Once again, the Commonwealth wastes taxpayer money on things they are not authorized to do, and does not fund their core responsibilities - transportation and education.

Result - all of us must pay more for their mistakes. Kudos to all delegates and senators who voted against this rubbish.

This will be the largest tax increase in Virginia history - and both Creigh Deeds and David Toscano voted YES.

You get the government you elect, folks. Will you re-elect them yet again?

Elected by democrats? I'm guessing yes... how about the republicans that voted for it?

People here seem to think things will fix themselves, and things cost the same as they did back in the 50's. I have an idea, how about we stop paying out all welfare checks and food stamps to the useless un&ducated t%ailer t%ash and r#dne#k tree cutters. That would save the state BILLIONS
