McDonnell touts cutting spending, refusing to raise taxes on national TV
Earlier this week, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) talked about his refusal to raise taxes to help offset a $4 billion budget shortfall while appearing on The Kudlow Report on CNBC.
"We can't continue to raise taxes and spend more,'' McDonnell said. "That's not a recipe for success."
The General Assembly adopted a budget last month that cuts millions from education, health care and public safety -- returning spending to 2006 levels. McDonnell is reviewing the budget and will offer amendments.
"We thought it was the right thing to do to reduce spending,'' McDonnell said. "There were some tough decisions in education and health care, but we got through a balanced budget done on time ... I think it is the right policy for Virginia."
