EYMAN TESTIMONY AGAINST INSLEE’S INCOME TAX: “Voters Know Once Pandora’s Box Is Opened …”

by | Jan 15, 2021

ZOOM public hearings suck.

They just do.

They are NOT as good as in-person testimony.

Nonetheless, I gave remote testimony against Inslee’s Income Tax Scheme before the Senate Ways & Means committee yesterday.

“My name is Tim Eyman

“Governor Inslee reminds me of my kids when I used to take them to Toys R Us. They wanted everything. 

But as their parent, I had to remind them that we couldn’t afford everything they wanted.
“Here, Inslee is proposing a new income tax.

Voters have 10 times rejected income taxes – most recently in 2010. It was an epic battle. Voters listened to both sides and then made their decision: 65% rejected it.

Voters know once Pandora’s box is opened, an income tax on some of us will quickly morph into an income tax on all of us.

WA’s sales tax started at 2% — now it’s nearly 12%.

That’s exactly what’ll happen with this.

“AND UNTIL WE GET OUR $30 TABS, DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT RAISING TAXESInslee’s lockdown has devastated our state’s economy and the lives and livelihoods of 7 million people.

“Raising taxes will only make this horrible situation worse.

“If any income tax bill passes, our 2021 initiative prohibiting any income tax, including a capital gains income tax, will take off like a rocket.

It’ll be like shooting fish in a barrel. Why impose taxes that voters have already said no to?

“On behalf of the millions of voters who consistently vote for our tax initiatives, my message to legislators is this: NO NEW TAXES ESPECIALLY NO INCOME TAX AND NO CARBON TAX.”

Is it any wonder the AG is pushing for a lifetime ban on all my future political activity?

In addition, we worked really hard on our $30 Tabs Initiative.

We got I-976 qualified, passed, and upheld by that King County judge. Karen and I sacrificed a lot — we sold off our retirement fund to kickstart its signature drive: 

We’re asking folks to donate to our PAC so we can get paid back and they’ll also be used to stop Inslee’s Income Tax and Carbon Tax Schemes. Please help:
