Democrats prove tax obsessed – 51 billion reasons they cannot be trusted

by | Feb 20, 2017

Democrats are obsessed with raising taxes this session.  Inslee’s request bills are now confirmed to cost taxpayers $51.2 billion.  That’s right:  $51 BILLION.  It’s truly obscene:

HB 1555 (Inslee’s massive new carbon tax imposed on everyone): $20,854,100,000 — $20.9 BILLION!!

HB 1550 (Inslee’s huge tax increase on customers of service businesses): $14,418,000,000 — $14.4 BILLION!!

HB 1730 (Inslee’s guarantuan new capital gains income tax): $ 9,483,000,000 — $9.5 BILLION!!

HB 1926 (Another new capital gains income tax):  $ 4,346,000,000 — $4.3 BILLION!!

HB 1549 (Inslee’s resurrection of voter-rejected tax increases on bottled water, etc):  $2,124,830,000 — $2.1 BILLION!!

       Nearly 2/3 of voters have consistently illustrated their opposition to higher taxes .  The only tax-obsessed politicians who get elected are those who hide their tax-hiking schemes during their campaigns (Inslee never disclosed his plans to raise taxes $51 billion — he knew that the voters would’ve rejected him if he had been honest about his tax-obsession).      

        But here we are.  Nearly 2/3 of voters opposed to higher taxes and a Governor and Democrats in the House and Senate who are obsessed with raising taxes.  

        Government will almost always do the wrong thing if they think the voters aren’t paying attention.  All legislators in the house and senate need to hear from you/us or else they will go tax crazy this session.


          I ask you — RIGHT NOW — to email this, or something like this to legislators:

“I strongly oppose all of the Governor’s tax raising schemes (HB 1549, HB 1550, HB 1555, HB 1730 and HB 1926).  You cannot tax us to prosperity.  There’s no way that raising taxes $51.2 billion is good for taxpayers or good for the state’s economy.  First of all, we’re already overtaxed, especially after Sound Transit’s $54 billion pig-out.  Second, in election after election, we’ve shown that nearly 2/3 of voters oppose higher taxes.  And finally, there’s no way our state’s economy can withstand massive job-killing tax increases.  Huge new taxes will only spur businesses to relocate and leave our state.  If you massively raise taxes, you will only inspire a tax revolt that will not end well for governments or the politicians who represent them.”

           Send a separate email for the Senate:

       Please do your part.  Sending these 2 emails RIGHT NOW will really make a difference.  Working together, we can stop them from raising taxes this year.  

       We are thrilled with the positive feedback we’re getting on this year’s initiative.  The Property Tax Fairness Initiative is a bold, exciting proposal that helps everyone. It cuts property taxes 25%, caps property tax increases, and eliminates the personal property tax.  It’s all about making property taxes fairer.  Help us make it a reality.
