Mullins: Gov. McDonnell's Transportation Plan is Innovative, Bold, and Rooted in Common Sense
Statement of RPV Chairman Pat Mullins:
"Transportation is an issue that Virginians have been dealing with for more than a decade now. The system our Commonwealth has in place right now is quite simply inadequate. The plan Governor McDonnell has put forward recognizes and corrects that fact.
At the same time, it removes a regressive tax on a commodity that the vast majority of Virginians must purchase. The Governor's plan is bold and innovative, and based in the common-sense conservative principle that higher revenues should flow from a growing economy, not higher tax rates.
- Put another way, @MarkWarner spent more than 3x the missing $ savings per family of #Obamacare on 1 charter flight... t.co/0Ld360M6Nq
- And while @MarkWarner flew on a taxpayer-funded charter jet, Tim Kaine drove... for $700. #VAsen #DoasIsaynotasIdo
- .@MarkWarner is so worried about national debt he stuck taxpayers with $8,000 bill for charter jet to fly to Southwest Virginia. #VAsen
