Would You Buy a Used Car From This Governor?

Governor Mark Warner (D) denied Tuesday that his call for "tax restructuring" is a Trojan horse for state tax increases, according to the Times-Dispatch.

"Absolutely not!" Warner told a caller during his monthly call-in show broadcast on WTOP radio in Washington.

The Democrat said Virginia's tax system is antiquated and needs a top-to-bottom overhauling to guarantee fairness and equity on the state and local levels.

In recent remarks, the governor has fueled speculation that he wants to raise additional dollars through tax reform to finance major needs in public education.

Mmm hmm. It's been a long time since I heard any ordinary Virginian complain about tax "antiquation" or tax "equity." What I keep hearing is that taxes are TOO HIGH!
