Today the Congressional Budget Office reported that the federal budget deficit for fiscal year 2008 will be $438 billion.  In 2000 the CBO was projecting a surplus of $635 billion in fiscal year 2008.  

Can you provide reasons for the $1.073 TRILLION turnaround and how would your administration fix the problem?

How about you, what questions would you like to hear asked?

Virginia's Democratic Party 2008 U.S. Senate candidate, former Governor, Mark Warne and his wife Lisa Collishosted yet another of their "almost annual pig roasts" Saturday at their Rappahannock River Bend Farm in King George.  

The crowds of friends, longtime supporters, and guests came in the form of Democrats, Republicans and independents from across the Commonwealth, around the nation and even a few visitors from other countries.  Their numbers well exceeded last year when almost 5,000 people attended.  I'd estimate the number this year to be closer to 7,000 (as the picture below of a small portion of the "field level" parking lot and my personal observation would suggest).

My thanks go out to Virginia Senator Jim Webb on getting the new and improved GI Bill passed by Congress and having it signed into law today:  
webbgibill

On Monday, June 30, President Bush signed into law landmark legislation introduced by Senator Jim Webb (D-Va.) to provide post-9/11 veterans with comprehensive educational benefits. Last week, the legislation was overwhelmingly passed by both the House of Representatives and Senate.

Senator Jim Webb introduced this bill eighteen months ago on his first day in office. The bipartisan measure-- principally cosponsored by Sens. Chuck Hagel (R-NE), Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), and John Warner (R-VA), has unprecedented support from all major veterans' organizations, in addition to strong bipartisan support in Congress, with a House vote of 416 to 12, and a Senate vote of 92 to 6.

Barck Obama and the Obama campaign should be congratulated for making the decision to rely on a grassroots strategy and refusing contributions from lobbyists and political action committees.

I believe the Obama campaign's approach is the only option to provide the funding flexibility that may be necessary to respond to the distortions, lies, and smears sure to come from every direction of the radical right.

It is unfortunate that our system of public financing of presidential elections is so broken that, in order to try to keep a level playing field with the Republican candidate's supporters, our Democratic Party presumptive nominee must opt out.
