The Iowa Republican: Chet Culver: Two faced on taxes

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Just a little over two weeks ago, Governor Chet Culver told Iowans he
would VETO any form of a gas tax increase if it hit his desk. In
making his statement Culver told Iowans he refuses to increase taxes
during a severe economic recession. Now Culver and the Democrats are
on the verge of passing a $600 million tax increase by eliminating
federal deductibility. But what about not raising taxed during a
"severe economic recession" Governor? Since the stock market is
inching closer to the 8000 mark, does that mean now is the time to
raise taxes?
