The comment by Susan Allen that George will stop paychecks for members of Congress if they don't pass a budget is more than just silly. And anyone who believes her is more than just dumb.
George Allen may SAY he is fiscally conservative, but that's a lie. Spending in Virginia increased sharply when Allen was governor, especially for prisons. Allen foisted the Standards of Learning tests onto Virginia schools, claiming that the massive testing program was "revenue-neutral" when it's actually cost hundreds of millions of dollars state-wide, narrowed the curriculum, and arguably made public education worse.
As a Senator, Allen voted in lock-step with the Bush administration. He supported unfunded tax cuts and a war in Iraq based on mythical weapons of mass destruction. And, of course, he voted for No Child Left Behind, the federal law that ramped up standardized testing across the nation and is viewed as an absolute failure.
George Allen is what he is: a conservative hypocrite who votes for the interests of corporations and the wealthy over ordinary citizens.
