West Virginia governor vetoes 'bull you-know-what' budget with cow dung

West Virginia's governor thought the state legislature's budget was a heaping pile of poop.

The Democratic governor publicly presented a tray of actual bull manure Thursday in the state capitol as he announced his veto of a Republican-backed budget package - leaving no doubt what he thinks of it. At previous briefings about the Republican legislators' positions he uncovered "a nothing burger" and "a mayonnaise sandwich". "We all should take ownership for this", he said, after displaying those metaphors in food form.

But should the governor for some reason sign the budget, it will create a serious problem for West Virginians.

According to WV Metro News, the $4.1 billion bill "included an increase in the consumer sales tax, a B&O tax on businesses and a rich man's tax". Justice vetoed the bill later that day. "And we don't have a mayonnaise sandwich", Justice said as he revealed an empty hamburger bun and two slices of bread with mayo. The new fiscal year starts July 1.

According to the Charleston Gazette-Mail, House Speaker Tim Armstead chided the governor for vetoing a "responsible budget" and said many of his members oppose the calls for tax hikes.

Marshawn Lynch could be eyeing Patriots as possible destination
If Lynch does return, a new contract is likely needed. "And we'll see if the Saints are really willing to extend themselves". He will also turn 31 years old later this month, but he still has a lot to offer to the Patriots offense.

He says the state must also ensure West Virginia patients get treatment from providers "who are current with clinical knowledge".

West Virginia Education Association President Dale Lee applauded Justice for vetoing the bill.

"This Legislature met for 60 days this year and considered proposal after proposal to raise revenue or reform our tax code, but ultimately did not reach any consensus or build enough support around any of these proposals", Armstead said.

"I hope and pray that the silliness will stop", he remarked.
