Meet Elaine Luria, the left wing extremist running against Congressman Scott Taylor.
Richmond, VA – Like all of us here at the RPV, Elaine Luria is a big fan of Congressman Scott Taylor. After all, she voted for him twice, once in the 2016 GOP primary and once in the general election when he had a Democrat opponent! Now she claims she is running against Scott Taylor because he voted to repeal Obamacare. But if you look at her website, not a single mention of what her plan is to fix healthcare. Raw political ambition is not a reason to run for office.
When Luria does talk about actual policy, she gets it all wrong. Back in November of last year, Luria became a keyboard warrior and typed out an op-ed about how terrible the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) would be for small businesses. Luria claimed that the TCJA would hurt small business owners and “actual job creators.” Let’s examine that.
A recent survey by the National Federation of Independent Business shows that optimism among small business owners is at an unprecedented level. The survey found that taxes are now the issue of least concern to small businesses for the first time since 2006. 22% of small business owners surveyed plan to raise wages – the highest percentage since 2006. 66 percent plan to invest funds – the highest percentage since 2006. And 28 percent of small business owners expect higher sales – the highest percentage since 2007.
How can voters trust someone who doesn’t even understand the bills she would be voting on? Elaine Luria is anti-small business, anti-low taxes, and blinded by her hatred for President Trump. She would be better off dropping out of the race and endorsing Scott Taylor like she did in 2016.
