Confused Leadership in Olympia

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
The Washington State Democrats are trying their best to raise taxes, but they are tripping over their own eagerness.

In an attempt to circumvent I-960, which requires that two-thirds of the Legislature approve any tax increase opposed to the normal simple majority, the Democratic leadership has submitted a bill to suspend I-960, because they have a majority, but not a two-thirds majority in the Legislature.

In their rush to raise taxes, they approved the wrong bill this week.

They intended to vote on a bill that would entirely suspend I-960, but instead approved a bill that partially suspended it.

Oops. Not to worry. They promised to get the right bill back for a vote within the next few days so they can completely circumvent the peoples desires. Voters have approved the I-960 mandate three times, yet the Democratically controlled Legislature will not accept the will of the people.

One more reason we need new leadership in Olympia. If they can't get it right on their own bill, people need to take a good look at what else they are not getting right.

This year is a great opportunity to make changes in the Legislature. As we progress through the primaries, Faith and Freedom will be giving you a call to action along with helpful voter information.

Thank you for your support.

God bless you.
