Still Steamed in Virginia

Here’s the GOP tax-increase plan for Virginians. Thanks a lot, Richmond! And for those of you who remember how Virginia Republicans campaigned on a “No Car Tax!” pledge in 1997, know this: Although the tax was lowered, it was never phased out completely because the legislature couldn’t stop itself from spending. Somebody please remind me why I’m supposed to vote for Republicans in local elections.
