Video: LA Mayor Villaraigosa: 'We Have to Raise Taxes'

Los Angeles’ Democratic Mayor Anthony Villaraigosa turned up in Tampa today to provide a counter-story to the Republican National Convention and its pro-free market message. The mayor’s city is regularly seen as one of the worst in which to do business, and Democrat-controlled California has been seen as one of the worst states to do business for the past decade.

Mayor Villaraigosa’s prescription to help California out of the mess that it’s in: More taxes. I captured this video on my cell phone during the mayor’s counter-conference this afternoon. Take a look.
