Some of It, Delegate? How about all of it?

Tuesdays Richmond Times-Dispatch brought the news that state tax collections are producing a "bumper crop of revenues" for the state with collections for December running 19% ahead of last year. The paper noted that while some legislators "cheered" that news, "some Republicans used the occasion to renew their argument that last year's record $1.4 billion in tax increases were unnecessary." Delegate Ryan McDougle (R-Hanover) "fought" those increases, but the paper quoted him saying, "I hope we will consider returning some of the record surplus to the people of the commonwealth." Some of it? How about all of it? That would be the right thing to do!
