Lynn "George H.W. Bush" Jenkins: Read My Lips...

State Treasurer Lynn Jenkins' call for increased income taxes to pay for Social Security certainly doesn't strike us as your standard "Republican Value."

One could have assumed, until recent events, that Jenkins didn't consider it one of her values either- seeing as she signed the "Taxpayer Protection Pledge."

Oh, hypocrisy be damned! Now we've got Lynn doing exactly what she said she wouldn't- she's championing an increase in taxes.

Just in case that link dies, here's an image of Jenkins' broken promise to not advocate for increased taxes:

Umm ... I listened to that video twice and I suppose I could point out how she didn't say she was going to raise taxes, but that would be too complicated.

Translation: increase SS withholding which is money taken out of your paycheck by the federal government. If that's not a tax, I don't know what is. Nice try though, Patrick.

Jim Ryun will never increase your taxes.
