budget and revenue forecast

Known By Your Friends, Part 2

After reading my colleague Chris' excellent post on Democrat candidate for Lt. Governor Jody Wagner, I remembered something: We actually have a bit of where she stands on certain family values issues and posted it in April (click here). On that post, you will see, she basically committed herself to the entire Equality Virginia agenda. But I strenuously disagree with Chris on one thing: Regarding Ms. Wagner's budget and revenue forecast acumen, I don't think she's a blank slate. In fact, there's plenty on that slate. It's just a confused slate, with plenty of figures, numbers, charts and graphs. But the numbers never, ever add up, and the arrows on the charts are always going in the wrong direction.
