Mere days after Governor Kaine famously unveiled his budget without raising taxes he has already flipflopped. From the Washington Post.
Gov. Timothy M. Kaine said Monday that he wants legislators to consider increasing the state tax on automobile sales to generate more money for highway maintenance and end the controversial fees on bad drivers.
Kaine doesn’t even have the guts to actually propose legislation I guess in a pathetic attempt to somehow maintain his no new taxes budget
Kaine said he will not introduce a bill calling for a tax increase, but he described it as the best approach for closing a projected $290 million shortfall in the part of the transportation budget used for the repair and maintenance of roads and bridges.
The hypocrisy is made even worse because of how much of a big deal was made about not raising taxes. Google kaine budget no new taxes and see for yourself how many articles were written.
In the end a donkey is a donkey and that means your taxes are going to go up.
