Tidewater legislators who voted for you to raise your own taxes to pay for their past mismanagement


Drake,  Jones, McDonnell, Melvin, Purkey, Sears, Spruill, Suit, Tata.

McDonnell was the only one who lied and voted for the increase after signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge.

As reported in the Washington Times:

"The Taxpayer Protection Pledge, created by Americans for Tax Reform, an influential anti-tax group based in Washington, is a simple, one-sentence promise to 'oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes'....

"Virginia lawmakers who signed the pledge, then voted for proposed referendums that could lead to sales-tax or income-tax increases, include Sen. H. Russell Potts Jr., Winchester Republican; Sen. W. Roscoe Reynolds, Martinsville Democrat; Delegate Vincent F. Callahan Jr., Fairfax Republican and chairman of the House Appropriations Committee; and Delegate Robert F. McDonnell, a Virginia Beach Republican who may run for attorney general in 2005."


Only 2 Tidewater legislators voted against asking you to raise your own taxes:
