Donald McEachin, Dems Plot to Waste Tens of Thousands of Tax Dollars on Special Session Hissy Fit

Back during the 2009 Virginia Statewide elections, a Supreme Court case, Melendez-Diez, caused drug and drunk driving cases to be tossed out by the state.

Democrat Steve Shannon, running against Ken Cuccinelli for the Virginia Attorney General position called the Special Session a “stunt” and declared it a total waste of taxpayer money, as it costs upwards of $40,000 per day to convene the General Assembly.

Other Democrats agreed, but a Special Session was called and plugged up the loophole that was allowing lawbreakers to walk away from what should have been a conviction.

Fast forward to today and we are looking at yet another Special Session. This time, it is not for something as “petty” (to Democrats) as making the state’s drug and drunk driving laws unenforceable, a situation that most Democrats considered a “stunt”.

Oh, no. This year, Donald McEachin and the Democrats forced a Special Session for something far more important – Committee Chairmanships on select committees. In other words, a grab for more power at your expense.

Money is tight. We don’t have $40,000 per day to indulge McEachin’s appetite for a corner office and a first class seat on a committee. Yet the Democrats are stonewalling for more power.

They pretend that they want higher taxes and more money wasted on useless programs. And after finding out that teachers in Virginia are handing out homework assignments to Middle Schoolers to dig up dirt on Mitt Romney and report it to the Obama Campaign (read about this outrage in the Daily Caller) Democrats want to double down with more money for classroom antics like this.

They ought to be pulling funding for schools that help a political campaign as a homework assignment.

And McEachin and the Democrats also want to raise taxes on Gas!

And they are perfectly willing to spend your $40,000 a day to force more Obama Campaigning from the Classrooms and higher gas taxes.

Donald, elections have consequences. You and the Democrats lost your majority for stupid and wasteful ideas like this. Please get your hand out of our wallets and sign the budget and go home. Your little Hissy Fit is costing us jobs and dollars. Every day!

  1. And if it hadn't been for Virginia Right calling for the Special Session and documenting Shannon's response, Ken Cuccinelli might not be our AG today!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
