AMAZING VICTORY: We killed the bill repealing tax advisory votes! Your emails & testimony got ‘er done! 

Mon, March 15, 2021

Since the November election, it’s been clear the Democrats in Olympia were hell-bent to raise taxes and then hide them from the voters by repealing tax advisory votes.

And why wouldn’t they?

After all, tax advisory votes notify every voter in the state:

* Which taxes were increased
* How much their tax increases will cost us
* How legislators voted on each tax increase
* Provide voters with the chance at the November election to register their support or opposition to each one. 

In 9 legislative sessions in a row, Olympia raised taxes.

There were 35 tax hikes that cost the taxpayers $52.1 billion.

We know that because of tax advisory votes.

For months, I’ve asked each of you to send emails to all 147 legislators telling them you oppose Senate Bill 5182. 

1000’s of emails from all of you were sent in response to these:

DEC 20, 2020: Voters overwhelmingly rejected all 4 tax hikes imposed by Inslee this year. Tax advisory votes rock!

JAN 13, 2021: I Want EVERYONE To Email All 147 Legislators RIGHT NOW. Tell Them NO NEW TAXES!!

JAN 18, 2021: Join Me In Telling All 147 Legislators: “Don’t Take Away My Right To Vote – Oppose SB 5182”

JAN 19, 2021: Join Me In Testifying Against The Democrats-Take-Away-The-People’s-Right-To-Vote Bill (SB 5182).

JAN 21, 2021: Watch My Testimony Defending Tax Advisory Votes.

FEB 1, 2021: Join Me In Telling All 147 Legislators: “Don’t Hide Your Tax Increases – Oppose SB 5182”

FEB 4, 2021: Dems needed a turncoat RINO to take away your right to vote — and they found one.

FEB 5, 2021: Why “Republican” Brad Hawkins joined w/ the Dems on SB 5182 — he voted for 11 tax hikes costing us $19.3 BILLION. 

FEB 16, 2021: EVERYONE send emails to all 147 legislators (I’ve made it easy): “No Income Taxes, No Carbon Taxes, Don’t Repeal Our Tax Advisory Votes!”

MARCH 4, 2021: There’s a massive # of tax proposals coming out of Olympia. Tell legislators you oppose all of them and that you’re against their bill repealing tax advisory votes!!

Because of our diligent efforts, Senate Bill 5182 didn’t get put on the senate floor for a vote by the “bill cut-off.”

This morning I received messages from Sen. Jeff Wilson and Rep. Jim Walsh (they are the ranking members in the Senate and House committees overseeing the bill) and they confirmed:

The bill is dead for this legislative session.

THIS IS AN AMAZING VICTORY!!

You should all be very proud of this achievement.

It’s one of many: 

No wonder the Democrat AG is trying so hard to shut me down. 

I’m 100% committed to appealing these ridiculously unconstitutional restrictions on the First Amendment because if they get away with it with me, you could be next!
