Northam’s tax plan hits hard workers

The governor’s tax increase is not aimed at “the rich.” His administration’s own calculations suggest that much of the burden would fall on families earning between $100,000 and $150,000. This could easily mean parents who work as a middle school principal and a nurse, or a Henrico fire captain and a social worker. These families may have labored for decades to earn these comfortable, but hardly wealthy, levels of income. Why should they be punished by their own state for achieving some degree of financial security?

Anyone who has made mortgage payments, purchased groceries for a growing family, sacrificed to cover college expenses for children, saved for retirement, and paid medical expenses can understand that Northam’s plan has nothing to do with taxing rich people.
