Gov. Jim Justice vetoed legislation Wednesday that would have eliminated recertification requirements for physician assistants.
"We don't have a nothing burger today, and we don't have a mayonnaise sandwich", Justice said in a reference to his previous comparisons for Republican budgets. We have a bunch of bull you know what.
Justice vetoed the bill theatrically with three props that were brought in trays.
According to the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy's most recent budget brief, Justice would close the state's budget gap by raising $450 million in new revenue, largely from increased sales and business taxes. He urged everyone to begin working together and "we'll stop the bull crap".
Thunder's Russell Westbrook double-doubles against Suns
The Suns rushed out to a 28 point lead as OKC struggled to make any baskets early on before Westbrook and co. came alive. A triple double is one thing, a season average of 31 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds per game is utterly ridiculous.
"We don't have a mayonnaise sandwich before us today", Justice said as the second lid was lifted showing a mayonnaise sandwich. 2018 would have taken $90 million out of the rainy day fund to replace Medicare cuts without raising taxes.
A bill vetoed by the governor means the lawmakers will be called back for a special session to adopt a spending plan before the start of the new fiscal year on July 1.
Justice attempted an eleventh-hour deal with the Republican-controlled Senate to pass a different version of the budget, but it didn't get through the House.
The Democratic governor of West Virginia brought a pile of bullsh*t to the state capitol in Charleston this week. "The majority of our members have heard the calls of the people they represent - they believe they are taxed enough already and simply can not afford to pay more for a government that continues to grow year after year". "I truly believe tax reform is a bold way to move West Virginia forward, and I hope we will have the support of the House of Delegates and the governor to achieve this goal".
