The economic evidence is clear
June 19, 2012
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports, "Answering a TV ad released last week attacking Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Timothy M. Kaine, Democratic group Majority PAC is up with one of its own attacking his Republican rival, George Allen... The 30-second ad, titled 'Only One,' defends Kaine's record as governor while blasting Allen's record in the Senate. 'He turned the largest budget surplus into a massive federal deficit, voted to weaken Medicare and gave tax breaks to companies who shipped our jobs overseas,' the narrator says."
Progressive Point: Virginians are looking for leaders who will grow our economy, create sustainable jobs, and have a record of working for our families. Six years ago, Virginia voters decided George Allen's work in Washington that lead to the recession and a record federal deficit wasn't the right direction for our country. Allen's support for weakening Medicare and increasing corporate tax breaks lost him the support of working Virginians.
Meanwhile, Tim Kaine made Virginia the best state for business in the U.S. four years in a row and kept unemployment levels below the national average. This year, we have a clear choice between George Allen's failed record and Tim Kaine's record of fiscal achievement.
