Republicans halt tax hike while Democrats obstruct compromises

"...just wanted to let you know that your taxes aren’t going up – this time! Of course, our solutions to move hundreds of millions of dollars from the existing sales tax to transportation did not happen either, nor any of our other proposed alternatives, so don’t let the other side tell you that it was the conservatives that wouldn’t compromise. We offered proposals that would have our own state government tighten its belt to move money to transportation just like every family and business in Virginia has had to do with rising gas prices in that last year or two… but the tax hikers/big spenders would have none of that! And so went the special session…"
