Letter to the Editor: McAuliffe can't grow state's economy
It is truly amazing to hear Terry McAuliffe promote himself as the candidate who can grow Virginia's economy. That's a laugh.
Based on his record of support for President Obama and his actions as a "Clinton appendage," we know McAuliffe would push to grow state government, raise taxes and strongly back Obamacare. He has flip-flopped on his earlier stances on use of clean coal technology and offshore drilling. He has had close relations with the unions and is suspiciously silent on Virginia's long-time history as a "right-to-work"state.
You can bet if he wins, union bosses will be forcing everyone to join their ranks and push budget-busting contracts. He also wants to raise the minimum wage. That helps the union bosses and, as economists note, kills jobs.
