Tim Kaine Pushes Education Investment and Less Tax Cuts

by Associated Press posted Apr 4 2012 6:11PM
  RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Democrat Tim Kaine has offered his U.S. Senate campaign's first policy presentation calling for government investment in education, transportation infrastructure and research and ending tax cuts for those earning $500,000 or more annually.
 
     Kaine and Sen. Mark Warner, back-to-back former governors, are barnstorming Norfolk, Arlington and Richmond Wednesday in Kaine's most conspicuous public swing after months largely spent raising cash, huddling with advisers and citizen round-tables.
 
     The former Democratic National Committee chairman called for a simpler tax code for small business, more schooling before kindergarten and after high school, closing tax loopholes for the wealthy and Big Oil.
 
     He called for more development of alternative power sources such as wind and solar electricity and jabbed at Republican George Allen, saying he belittles all forms of energy that aren't carbon-based.
