With more than $800 Billion in tax cuts set to expire this year .... new healthcare taxes coming down the pipe .... cap and trade taxes destroying business .... and all the other taxes that the Democrats have yet to dream up ....House and Senate Leadership (Senators Saslaw and Howell and Delegate Plum) were voicing their support for a statewide GAS INCREASE at a luncheon in Dulles today.
Sounds to me like Saslaw, Howell and Plum are feeling a little left out on the TAX TAX TAX fever that is happening in Washington, DC and wanted to take a further swipe at Virginia's taxpayers.
Funny thing about that is ... the Taxer in Chief Obama isn't even in favor of an increased gas tax. White House: "No support for gas tax"
How much more out of whack with Virginia can the Democratic House and Senate leadership be???
Reminds me of a quote by the great Ronald Regan ... "Republicans believe everyday is the Fourth of July, but the Democrats believe every day is April 15th"
