Yes, he did that, but what the story fails to also say is that he forecasted doom and gloom (LIED) due to his projected revenue shortfall.
Funny thing is that year there was a $427 MILLION surplus BEFORE his $1.4 BILLION tax increase went into effect.
It also fails to say that Kaine requested an additional $1.2 BILLION increase in addition to what Warner had already suckered the legislature into granting 3 WEEKS after taking office.
Virginia doesn’t need Warner, Kaine or McAuliffe representing them ever again. The Democrats have done enough damage fiscally to take 10 years to recover from!
