Senate Refuses Transportation Compromise

At Lt. Governor Bill Bolling's "Bloggers Day" in Richmond a few weeks ago (I've got to do a lengthy post on that, and will, soon), the main talk was of the transportation/tax "compromise" proposed by House Republicans. Like all proposed compromises, it was chock full of bad ideas, the main one being a tax increase.

Compromise is not in the lexicon of the tax advocates in the Senate. Once again, pro-tax Repubmocrats on the Senate Finance Committee --- led by the estimable John Chichester (RINO-Northumberland) --- refused any compromise, and decided to slap on a 5% sales tax on gasoline.

The Asses of Evil strike again. Ward has a great roundup here.
