Greenpeace attacks prompt strong defense of Virginia employer from Lt. Governor Bill Bolling

Americans for Prosperity – Virginia applauds the leadership of Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling following his letter to national retailers to support a Virginian paper company in the face of a smear campaign by Greenpeace. The letter, which was sent to the CEOs of Costco, Food Lion, Kmart, Kroger, Sam's Club, Safeway, Target and Wal-Mart called on the retailers to reject Greenpeace’s attacks and to show support for their customers and suppliers by standing with Mercury Paper, the company targeted in the smear campaign. Lieutenant Governor Bolling’s action joins the nearly 500 Virginians who have recently sent letters to the CEO’s urging the retailers to denounce Greenpeace’s threats and to stand by Mercury Paper.

If you agree with us that energy prices do not have to be so high, if we would only:

•Explore domestic energy production
•Build pipelines to transport oil from Montana and Canada rather than the volatile Middle East
•Stop energy tax hikes, with similar intent as cap-and-trade, that benefit companies like Solyndra
•Expand refinement capacity here in America

Protect Virginia Jobs, Not Greenpeace’s Anti-Free Market Agenda

October 24, 2011 J

Americans for Prosperity - Virginia (AFP-VA) needs you to help us stand up for a local Virginia business and its workers against Greenpeace's radical agenda.

Click here to take action today!

Their latest campaign against Wal-Mart, Target, Kroger, Kmart, Sam's Club, Safeway and Costco is aimed at putting Virginia-based Mercury Paper Inc., an American supplier of low-cost paper products such as Oasis Branded toilet paper, out of business. This effort threatens jobs and economic growth in Virginia at a time when we can ill afford to turn our backs on new job creation.

Americans for Prosperity – Virginia (AFP-VA) has expressed its firm opposition to this campaign by Greenpeace and the impact it will have on workers and consumers. But we need your help today.

Tell Washington to Cut Spending Now!

October 17, 2011 J

Americans have tightened their belts, so should Washington!

For decades, Washington has continued to borrow and spend at a pace that is not sustainable. Washington is borrowing nearly 40 cents of every dollar we spend and the US debt is now the same size as our entire economy.

You and I understand that our families could not survive borrowing at the same rate, but Washington continues to use the same budgeting gimmicks and accounting tricks to hide our financial crisis.

That’s why Americans for Prosperity-Virginia is pleased to announce our Cut Spending Now! Tour, which will be rolling through Roanoke and Fredericksburg on Tuesday, October 25, 2011.

Roanoke Event

Who: Hard-working, concerned citizens such as YOURSELF!
What: Cut Spending Now Tour rally and lunch
Where: Fallon Park, Roanoke – 2150 Dale Avenue (Elm Ave turns into Dale, park on left)
When: Tuesday, October 25th at 12 noon

Tell Sen. Roscoe Reynolds To Stop Supporting Higher Taxes and Opposing Energy Independence

October 14, 2011 J

Sen. Roscoe Reynolds (20th District) has served in the Virginia General Assembly – either in the House of Delegates or the Senate – since Ronald Reagan was president. In that time, Sen. Reynolds has embraced fiscal policies harmful to Virginia families, employers and taxpayers in general.

In addition to supporting the largest tax increase in Virginia history in 2004, Reynolds advocated or voted for a variety of anti-taxpayer and job-killing policies, including:

* Raising income taxes on senior citizens
* Raising the tax on gasoline
* Raising sales taxes paid by employers
* Raising the statewide sales tax and allowing localities to do the same
* Raising vehicle registration fees
* Implementing an Internet sales tax
* Diverting sales tax revenue to fund a baseball stadium in Richmond
*Opposing elimination of the death tax

Sen. Reynolds took all of these positions despite having signed the taxpayer protection pledge sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform.
