 Hillary Haaawww!!!! Hillary Haaawww!!!! - Spank Zone - Gov. & VA General Assembly: "Screw the Poor"
Furthermore, when they "grant a tax break" to the citizens they should not be "scheming a way" to take it away from one citizen, for being a day late paying in paying it to their "Masters, The General Assembly", and his "Excellency" The Governor.
While the GA has it within its power to raise the $950 million cap as you suggest, and I readily concede the point, my only concern is when people point to the $950 cap and say that it "breaks the promise." The promise was $620 million.
Yes, the GA could spend billions to completely eliminate the personal property tax assessment on every personal-use vehicle evaluated at $20,000 or less (which is the part of the promise most people remember), but it's not obliged to do so in order to fulfill the promise.

 Techdirt: VA Hopes Data Thieves Are Stupid
While there's been plenty of talk about how a VA employee brought lots of confidential personal data home with him only to have it all stolen in a burglary, some are noticing that the VA's response has been a bit odd.
What this tells me is that the VA allowed a breach of compliance with certain standards and that they need a very serious audit and re-vamp of their data management processes.
The VA certainly isn't the well-oiled machine that many of us would hope, but the employees are generally hard working, good-hearted people that really try to do what's best for the veterans they serve.
