What’s the Difference between a Republican and a Democrat?
That’s a trick question – there doesn’t seem to be much difference in Virginia anymore.
Our Republican-majority legislature just passed the Governor’s transportation bill that increases taxes by $6.1BILLION over the next five years. This is after they subtract out the current retail gasoline tax.
This legislation raises the state sales tax, car tax, regional sales tax, vehicle and tangible personal property taxes, vending machine tax, heavy equipment tax, recordation tax on commercial, industrial and residential real property sales, hotel tax, hybrid vehicle tax, and diesel fuel tax. And what is worse, there is no guarantee that all of the money raised will actually go to roads.
We have a plan to address both the Republicans who voted for this monstrosity as well as the Governor.
