More on taxes in Virginia

Here is anti-tax commentary from Paul Jacob, a term-limits supporter.

The Richmond paper had this article, the Norfolk paper had this article, and the Daily Press had this article on last night's budget talks. Somehow, I think the Senate group is doing a bad job of explaining what the extra $4 billion in their deal, over and above what the governor proposed, does for Virginia. The Times-Dispatch article quotes one senator as saying, "At least give us a chance to convince you." They need to convince a lot of people.

The Norfolk paper has this interview ("Gilmore defends his legacy," 3/8/04) with former Governor Gilmore, who says, among other things, "I don’t know why the public should believe politicians at this point"
