Gilmore vs. Warner

The Gilmore Record:
  • Cut taxes by $1.5 billion.
  • Enacted the largest tax cut in Virginia history.
  • Reduced state college tuition rates by 20%.
  • Signed into law Virginia’s first 24 hr. waiting period law; Virginia’s first parental notification law; and the current ban on partial birth abortions in the Commonwealth.
  • Signed into law the Commonwealth’s first policy governing the internet and opposed an internet sales tax.
  • Chaired the “Gilmore Commission” that studied terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.

The Warner Record:

  • Broke his campaign promise and proposed the largest tax increase in Virginia history – $1.1billion.
  • Signed into law the largest tax increase in Virginia history – $1.4 billion.
  • Oversaw double digit increases at many state colleges and universities – including Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
  • Opposed the 24 hr waiting period law and opposes any further attempts to “chip away at the rights” under Roe vs. Wade.
  • Supported the imposition of the national online sales tax.
  • Appointed Governor Gilmore’s Lt. Governor as his Secretary for Homeland Security.

The choice is clear. If the people of Virginia want a proven leader – who keeps his promises, who stands up for the sanctity of life, lowers taxes, and understands the issue of terrorism in this post 9-11 day and age.

DEMOCRATIC Governor Warner's tax increase is a perfect example of what is wrong in Richmond and also Washington. They increased taxes when the economy was in the process of improving and in Virginia the increased tax revenue turned into a surplus showing that the tax increase was not needed.

The worst part is that they spent the surplus alongwith now getting us further in debt because like Washington, if you send extra money to Richmond they will be sure to spend it and come back looking for more!!!
