Traitor McDonnell conspires w/ McAuliffe to Bribe Democrats with ObamaCare for 6.1 Bln Tax Hike in VASubmitted by momtokippy on Thu, 02/28/2013 - 11:52
Thanks to Republicans, we have $6.1 billion in tax increases to look forward to over the next five years, including:
Sales tax hiked from 5 to 5.3 percent (6 percent in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads)
Diesel tax hiked roughly 5 cents per gallon (wholesale tax)
Personal property tax hiked from 3.5 percent to 4.3 percent
Tangible personal property tax hiked to 5 percent
3 percent Northern Virginia hotel tax
Car tax hiked from 3 percent to 4 percent in 2013, and up to 4.3 percent in 2016
A tax on wholesale gasoline of 3.5% (one gallon of gas is currently almost $4 so this wholesale tax equals 14 cents per gallon which negates the argument that the gas tax has been eliminated).
An internet tax which, if the federal government is unable to implement, will increase the wholesale gasoline tax from 3.5% to 5.1%
In order to pass their tax increases, Republicans cut a backroom deal with Democrats to clear the way for Medicaid expansion and Obamacare implementation with a super committee style process that will control the vote—freeing them from a tough decision.
Democrats have declared victory. They stuck to their principles and won. They got bigger government, higher taxes, more spending.
