The Newest Champion of Higher Taxes
Thursday, September 14, 2006 :::
None other than Sen. Jeannemarie Devolites Davis, who told a gathering of tax-philic NoVa business representatives that they must first:
...persuade three Republican members of the Finance Committee from Northern Virginia. The delegates -- Timothy D. Hugo of Fairfax and Jeffrey M. Frederick and L. Scott Lingamfelter of Prince William -- have resisted past efforts to raise taxes or fees to fund transportation improvements.
"I think it is extremely important that they be inundated," Devolites Davis said. "If your employees live in their district, have them send them an e-mail."
We all know how well that worked during the regular session, when the Kaine administration urged a similar strategy in support of higher taxes.
If this avalanche of emails does come, I suggest the response from the three Delegates in question be along the lines of what Jim Bacon wrote earlier this week.
