“Virginia taxpayers are calling Tim Kaine out: your tax and spending policies were bad for Virginia, and they are bad for America,” explained Audrey Jackson, State Director of Americans for Prosperity – Virginia. “It’s time Kaine learned that you can’t spend your way to prosperity or tax your way to economic freedom.”

Tim Kaine’s record of promoting higher taxes and spending: as governor, he supported a billion dollars in tax increases in his budget and increased Virginia’s debt by 50%. Tim Kaine inherited a $1.2 billion surplus when he entered office in 2005, yet he left Virginians with a $4.2 billion budget shortfall when he left office. He was a vocal proponent of Obama’s Health Care takeover.

“Tim Kaine claims to be a tax cutter, but Virginians know better and are telling him that economic freedom and limited government are the right way to grow an economy,” Jackson continued.

The ad airs statewide for 14 days. AFP-VA will launch a bus tour Wednesday, June 27, featuring nationally and locally-known speakers. Click here to see the full schedule of events and speakers.
