Time to make smarter budget decisions

There are times when you just can’t afford that big purchase right away. Maybe there’s a new Chevy truck that you want to get or an addition you want to put on the house. Either way, you just don’t have the cash right now. So you start putting money away and eventually, you’ve saved enough to pay that off. But when you go to withdraw money from the savings account, you find that it’s all gone. It turns out another person in your family, who you had added to the account, spent it all on a project they wanted to finish. As crazy as it sounds, that’s how the state and federal government handle taxpayer dollars and unfortunately, a constitutional amendment that would have stopped the practice in Virginia was killed this week by the state Senate.
