State lawmakers can rule out Virginian's offering up more of their hard-earned money to fix the $1.4 billion budget shortfall Gov. Tim Kaine announced this week.This is 0.00000005 percent of Virginia's budget since 2002. The best year so far was 2003 when the program collected $6,602. The low point was in 2006, when the state received $19.36.
At least that is what a peek at the so-called "Tax Me More Fund" suggests.
Since its inception in 2002, the fund has collected a total of $10,217.04.
I'm sure there is a message in this somewhere.
