Democrats don't support Kaine's tax hike either?

Will Democrat Governor Tim Kaine be left standing along holding the bag of transportation tax hikes he had hoped to impose on the state? Feedback from his Transportation Townhall meetings around the state have not been good ... both Republicans and Democrats have balked.

Now it will be tested in the General Assembly. This from House Speaker Bill Howell who threw the transportation ball into the Democrat-controlled state senate's court:
"It is obvious to everyone that, since a Democrat governor called this special session, the body controlled by his party should act first on his legislation. When the governor's allies in the Senate send us a bill that they have passed and that he will sign, then we will give it full and fair consideration."
Hear, hear!
