Hmmm…talk about an inspirational poster.
They say taxes are like comfort food for the Democrat’s soul. Of course, you could tell from Creigh Deeds’ op-ed in The Washington Post, if elected, he will raise taxes. In his op-ed, Deeds indicated that he is open to raising taxes to improve transportation. This is no surprise, because he voted for a gas tax increase in the State Senate.
Lieutenant Governor candidate, Jody Wagner, also jumped on board by saying that she would work with Deeds to improve transportation, even if it included taxes. (Source: The Washington Post). Considering that Wagner miscalculated the budget, while serving as Secretary of Finance, there is no way that she would oppose tax hikes.
You can also glean from Steve Shannon’s record from the General Assembly to find how he views tax increases. In one of his first votes as a Delegate, he voted against $400 million in tax relief, then he was voted for the largest tax increase in Virginia history.
In these hard economic times, it is obvious that the Democrats will take more money out of the pockets of working families. Is this the kind of hope and change we need in Virginia? I seriously doubt it.
Virginia Conservative reports that Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) has endorsed Ken Cuccinelli for Attorney General. Cuccinelli has always been an advocate of life, liberty, and property. This is why I endorsed Cuccinelli from the beginning. Virginia Conservative has the letter up on his website.
We need more leaders in Congress like Rep. Ron Paul, and we definitely need more leaders in Virginia, like Ken Cuccinelli.
