Letter: A Price of Obamacare

Letter to the Editor

What's in a number? When someone throws out a number, what does that really mean? If someone says, for example, 250,000 people have had their insurance canceled on them in Virginia because of Obamacare, what does that mean?

Letter: Honest Like Wolf

Letter: Voting for Taxes

Letter to the Editor

Since John Foust has told us nothing about himself, I thought I would look for myself at his record. Turns out John Foust has voted or supported to raise a lot of our taxes.

Letter: Candidate Who Raises Taxes

Letter to the Editor

John Foust unlike Barbara Comstock has a love of raising taxes. John Foust hasn’t met a tax that he would not want to cut and recently said that he would raise taxes if elected to Congress. If history is any judgment of character, John Foust’s history on taxes is totally abysmal.

Letter: Questioning Ultrasound

Marc Harrold, Libertarian; Joe Galdo, Green, run for Congress.

Marc Harrold is a self-professed creature of habit. He’s been going to the same bars and restaurants near his Fairfax home for years, where the close friends he’s made there say his great sense of humor and diverse intelligence help him “hold court” and converse easily with anyone, on any subject.

Sarvis: Warner-Gillespie Debate ‘Disappointing’

Libertarian candidate says chamber’s decision to include only major-party candidates in U.S. Senate debate a “disservice” to voters.

After a full day of campaigning at Fort Belvoir on Friday, Oct. 11, Robert Sarvis talked about his campaign for U.S. Senate, and his disappointment in not being invited to participate in Tuesday’s U.S. Senate Debate — a major televised debate hosted by The Fairfax Chamber at Capitol One’s convention center in McLean. “The Fairfax Chamber informed us that it was nothing other than ‘tradition’ to only invite major party candidates,” Sarvis said. “But this was after we formally requested an invitation, noted that over 145,000 Virginians voted for Robert Sarvis for governor in 2013, and sent them a petition signed by over 1,000 Virginians in support of a three-candidate debate.”
