"He left office having achieved the seemingly unachievable: persuading a GOP General Assembly to raise taxes by $1.4 million for schools, police and social services."

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!

It's a scarey damn thought to think dim kaine could ever be a so called senator from Va. I agree that the damnocreeps have done damage that noone could have imagined, except for sane conservatives. First time in my life that I'm actually afraid for this country. Clinging to my faith, rifle and the Constitution? You bet your azz I am!

What a puff piece on Warner, but Jeff Schapiro has always been a shill for the Democrat Party.

And Tazdad is absolutely right. Warner pushed through his tax increase while withholding information regarding future revenue projections. At least the GOP didn't fall for Kaine's lies.
