Kaine Disdain

As I (and others) predicted it took about two seconds for Time Kaine to be in the Govenor's mansion for the moderate facade to come down. One of the first things he has done is propose a transportation plan that includes a hefty tax hike. Jody Lee elaborates on this and other things that are giving the people of the Commonwealth acute casses of Kaine Disdain: - Blogs - Jody Lee: "The first regards one of the very first thing this “moderate” did upon taking over the Governorship. He immediately put his hand in your pocket (you, being citizens of the Commonwealth). Without so much as a how-do-you-do, he shook off the cloak of moderation he wore all during the campaign and said “Gimme”. Here we sit with a budget surplus and a strong economy, and no reasonable (it seems to me) explanation of why his transportation tax is so necessary."
