Today’s Wall Street Journal has an excellent column about Allen’s position on the looming sequestration and what it will mean to Virginia. Allen is reminding voters that we wouldn’t be facing sequestration, with huge cuts to defense and defense contractors, if the democrats hadn’t refused to allow cuts in the federal budget. If sequestration happens (which is looking more and more likely) over 200,000 people in Northern Virginia will lose their job. Kaine believes that raising taxes is the way to close the financial gaps, instead of cutting spending. That’s Kaine’s answer to everything, raise taxes!
If Obama wins re-election, and Kaine is with him, our military and Defense Department will be held hostage until the democrats get the tax hikes that they want. That means 200,000 of our friends, family, and neighbors, just in northern Virginia, will be out of work and many more in Hampton Roads and Norfolk. This will devastate Virginia’s economy and our families. We cannot let this happen.
