60 Plus urges Virginia to keep tax hikes off the table
The 60 Plus Association, which represents over 7 million senior citizens nationwide and almost 160,000 in Virginia, urges the Commonwealth’s legislature to keep all tax hikes off the legislative table. Seniors, families and other vulnerable Virginians are already being driven into poverty by spiraling prices and a weak economy. Taking an even larger chunk of money in the form of increased sales taxes, gasoline taxes, and fees will only make their struggle worse.
