So, what if someone submitted a bill (HB 1710) in the Virginia House of Delegates that simply required a sunset date of no more than four years on all taxation bills that add or increase a state or local tax?
This sounds like a reasonable and prudent law. Why should taxes have an indefinite life when the humans from which the taxes are seized enjoy no such earthly benefit?
Who could vote against such a commonsense proposition? Among others, your Delegate to the 57th district, David Toscano (or David Taxcano, as a creative contributor referred to him in a previous post).
And David cannot hide behind the skirt of his party on this vote, because there were Democrats who voted in favor of the bill (as there were Republicans who voted against it).
For all of his attempts to portray himself as a moderate, Delegate Dave has once again shown himself to be a liberal consumer—when it comes to your tax dollars.
If you’d like to call Delegate Toscano regarding his vote, here’s the number: (800) 889-0229.
