Hours away, now, from the much hyped Special Tax Session. So, before it begins, just one question:

Before we go taxing hard-working families struggling with high gas and food prices and economic uncertainty, before the government requires us to cut our family budgets because it won't prioritize its own budget (where spending has increased 50 percent in five years), shouldn't Governor Kaine (contact here) and the General Assembly (contact here) first spend the $400 million from last year's transportation plan that wasn't repealed or declared unconstitutional?

Just askin' is all.
