Republicans hate taxes -- NOT!

Next time one of your conservative pals tells you that, quite unlike Democrats, Republicans loathe taxes, tell ’em about Virginia legislator David B. Albo (R-Springfield). Albo slipped a “driver responsibility tax” into a larger transportation funding bill signed into law by Governor Tim Kaine. Beginning next Sunday, Virginia residents can now expect to pay a new traffic ticket tax that can boost penalties beyond $3,550. And here’s the corker: Republican Albo is a senior partner in the Albo & Oblon, LLP traffic law firm, which expects to see big jumps in business from clients fighting these costly new traffic fines. Read the whole ugly story here. Hat tip to Karen De Coster.
