McDonnell's Record on Higher Education: Just Say "Nay"

Our friends at the Democratic Party of Virginia issued this press release last week, highlighting Bob's lack of support for higher education over the years and McDonnell's 2001 vote to slap an $8 million dollar tax increase on college students. Check it out...

When Bob had the chance, he chose to vote against supporting higher education

RICHMOND- Bob McDonnell addressed the Grow By Degrees Summit to talk about the importance of higher education, his remarks likely didn't mention that he passed on an opportunity to vote for a landmark investment in higher education.

McDonnell acts as though higher education is a priority of his, but not only did Bob vote against investing in higher education, he voted in favor of adding a per credit hour "tax" on college students to raise funds for college campuses.

"It's about time Bob McDonnell started talking straight about his record and his plan for public education in Virginia," said DPVA spokesperson Allison Jaslow. "Not only does McDonnell work hard to hide his lack of support in the past, but he conveniently forgets to mention that his vision for the future entails draining $5.4 billion from public education and other priorities to pay for roads."
