How to decrease space between  Flex Text objects?

I have a simple design issue that has become a real time eater. I am trying to figure out how to decrease the space between text objects as in the code snippet I included. I have tried setting vertical spacing to 0 and tried every style setting I could find. These are dynamic sentences that simply need to appear a little closer together. Is there another way to do this or am I just missing something here.

I am using flex 3.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="vertical" >
		public var lineOne:String = new String("This is the first line");
		public var lineTwo:String = new String("This is the second line");
		color: #4260C4;
		font-family: Arial;
		font-size: 12;
		font-weight: bold;
		color: #4260C4;
		font-family: Arial;
		font-size: 10;
		font-weight: normal;
<mx:VBox verticalGap="0">
 <mx:Text id="line1"  text="{lineOne}" styleName="lineone"/>
 <mx:Text id="Line2" text="{lineTwo}" styleName="linetwo"  />
