Join Jim and Greg as they welcome good poll numbers for Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin and strong support for much of his agenda. They also shudder as Sen. Chuck Grassley unveils more evidence that the FBI actively covered up allegations against Hunter Biden during the 2020 campaign. And they point out the insanity of Maryland election law allowing mail-in ballots to arrive 10 days after election day – and fear this could create tremendous controversy if it happens in key races around the country this year.

    So, maybe 80% of people in Virginia favor eliminating the gas tax.

    And, maybe 90% of people in Virginia favor more roads and bridges etc.

    Did anyone ask them how they expect to have both?

    My impression is, in most places the gas tax is used to subsidize mass transit and for other purposes. In Virginia, how much of it actually goes for “roads and bridges etc.”?

    One unique scam Virginia Democrats have managed to get into law is that in that state gas taxes are indexed to inflation; in other words, they go up automatically.

    Glenn Youngkin and the Republicans tried to stop this, but the Democrats beat them back. They really like the idea of tax increases they can pretend they had nothing to do with.
