REQUIRED READING: What Unlimited Government Costs Us
With our initiatives in effect from 2007-2012, the Legislature raised taxes $6.9 billion. Without our initiatives in effect from 2013-2017, the Legislature raised taxes $23.7 billion. Our November 30 update highlighted this amazing comparison: http://conta.cc/2zPRDBU
A national columnist and activist recently wrote about it. It’s required reading:
Seattle Democrats control the House and Senate this legislative session which starts on Monday. That means our wallets, our rights, our liberty, and our freedom will be in extreme danger for the next 60 days. That’s why on Monday, we’re filing our initiative for 2018: “We Don’t Want An Income Tax” which prohibits the state and any local government from imposing an income tax, especially a capital gains income tax. With taxpayers under siege, we can’t just sit around and wait and react to the Democrats’ tax-hiking schemes — by then, it’ll be too late. We must stay on offense. Democrats are relentless in their pursuit of higher taxes — we have been and must continue to be equally relentless in our pursuit of lower taxes.
The best way to fight the Democrats’ tax-hiking schemes is by taking our case directly to the people. That’s why we’re moving full steam ahead with We Don’t Want An Income Tax.
Jack, Mike, and I are committed to protecting taxpayers. But we can’t do it alone. We need everyone’s help.
