Is Kaine's plan different than Bolling's?
I'll be the first to admit that I'm hard on political reporters. I try to make up for it by pointing out when I think they are being fair.
Two candidates have announced campaign issues that involve property tax relief. Bob Gibson has fairly described the holes in Sen. Bolling's and Lt. Gov. Kaine's plans.
The Norfolk Pilot, on the other hand, manages to find fault only with Sen. Bolling. Given the
criticism from the Virginia Municapal League and the Virginia Association of Counties, one would expect more criticism of Kaine's plan from the op-ed pages. If anyone gubernatorial candidate is channelling Jim Gilmore, it's Tim Kaine.
As an aside, we were having dinner with my grandmother and she said "It sounds like Tim Kaine is trying to pull the same mess Jim Gilmore pulled with the car tax!" Look for grandmother Addison to guestblog at somepoint in the future.
