Susan Lascolette Rates Legislators on Tax Votes

Completely regardless of our legislators' success on other important issues, the Virginia Tea Party Patriots here rate them on tax and spending proposals alone. Note that one of the highest ratings goes to a Democrat:
 
"The HALL of FAME:
 
Voted 4/4 times against increased taxes/spending - 100%
 
BEN CLINE
Special mention
Johnny Joannou (D)
Elected in 2010
 
Voted 2/2 times against increased taxes/spending -100%
 
ROB BELL
ROXANN ROBINSON
 
THANK YOU - CLASS of 2012 Republicans who voted NO to new taxes/spending on 2/22/13
(7 of 15)

Freshman Delegates (elected in 2012) who voted YES for the biggest tax increase in VA history:
 
Dudenhefer, Head, Hodges, Minchew,
Morris, Watson, Yancey, Yost
 
The four biggest tax and spending votes taken by the VA General Assembly starting with the Warner tax increase of 2004 are shown. All were disguised as transportation bills.
 
HB5018 The Warner Tax increase. 1.4 Billion
HB3202 (All taxes/fees have been struck down by the courts - UDAs are now optional)
HB2527 Accelerated bond issuance. 3 Billion
HB2313 6.1 Billion tax increase (3.5 for transportation - maybe!)
 
Special thanks to Susan Lascolette for pulling all of this together in an easy to comprehend spread sheet. We trust you will find the information handy as we move toward the November House of Delegates election. (FYI...The filing deadline for Republican Primary Candidates is March 28th :)
