Terry Kilgore and budget reform?

I've listened to some sound bits from the debate, and one in particular confused me.

Tim Kaine:
...thank God budget reform ended up passing with your twin brother's support...
What does this mean? What support did Terry Kilgore give to HB5018?

Here's the first House vote:
Yeas...Jones, S.C., Keister, Lewis, Marshall, D.W., ...
Neas...Janis, Joannou, Kilgore, Landes...
Here's the second House vote:
Yeas...Jones, S.C., Keister, Lewis, Marshall, D.W., ...
Nays:...Janis, Joannou, Kilgore, Landes...
What am I missing?

I wondered about that too. Either Kaine didn't do his homework, or he thought that the rest of us were too dumb to notice....guess that's part of being a "master debater."

Surely you know that only Republicans misspeak or mislead.

Kilgore did not vote for HB5018 (the taxes), but he did vote for HB5001 (the spending). I think that is what Kaine meant.

I rather like the idea of maintaining a hard line against taxes but voting for spending increases. I've been trying to get away with that on my household budget. I want to relax a bit on my law practice, but spend more on high ticket items. My wife isn't buying it. Maybe she should run for statewide office (doubt she could get elected with an attitude like that - neither party would have her).
