And those who believe in “government investments” show just how much they actually put their money where their mouth is:
State lawmakers can rule out Virginian’s offering up more of their hard-earned money to fix the $1.4 billion budget shortfall Gov. Tim Kaine announced this week.
At least that is what a peek at the so-called “Tax Me More Fund” suggests.
Since its inception in 2002, the fund has collected a total of $10,217.04.
In his book, “From Hope to Higher Ground,” Mr. Huckabee said that from 2001 to 2005, a total of 56 persons made contributions to the Arkansas fund, totaling $2,077.
Don’t tax me or thee, but tax him over there behind that tree.
“The people of Virginia have voluntarily taxed themselves in the amount of 0.00000005 percent of Virginia’s budget since 2002, which is a good measure of their support for tax increases,” said Sen. Kenneth T. Cuccinelli, Fairfax County Republican.
So why do we let Presidential candidates run around talking about how wonderful it will be when everybody is taxed to death for “universal health care”? Because everybody believes that it will be somebody else paying for it – not them!
