Tell Senate Republicans that all of us support their no-new-taxes position

by | May 11, 2017

Inslee and House and Senate Democrats are waiting around for the Republicans to throw up their hands and say “You guys win, let’s all vote to raise a bunch of taxes.”    

         On day one of this session, Senate Republicans insisted on a 2/3 legislative vote for any tax increase bill.  They’ve taken a no-new-taxes position for the past 4 months.  They’ve heard from the public that they’ve got the support of 2/3 of the voters for their no-new-taxes position. 

         It’s important that Senate R’s hear again from us that we support them.

          Please everyone – RIGHT NOW – send an email to the 25 members of the Majority Coalition Caucus — cut and paste these email addresses into the To line:

jan.angel@leg.wa.govBarbara.bailey@leg.wa.govMichael.baumgartner@leg.wa.govrandi.becker@leg.wa.govjohn.braun@leg.wa.govsharon.brown@leg.wa.govshelly.short@leg.wa.govdoug.ericksen@leg.wa.govjoe.fain@leg.wa.govphil.fortunato@leg.wa.govbrad.hawkins@leg.wa.govjim.honeyford@leg.wa.govcurtis.king@leg.wa.govmark.miloscia@leg.wa.govsteve.oban@leg.wa.govmike.padden@leg.wa.govkirk.pearson@leg.wa.govann.rivers@leg.wa.govdino.rossi@leg.wa.govmark.schoesler@leg.wa.govtimothy.sheldon@leg.wa.govjudy.warnick@leg.wa.govmaureen.walsh@leg.wa.govlynda.wilson@leg.wa.govhans.zeiger@leg.wa.govtim_eyman@comcast.net

           Email them this or something like this:

“MCC members, you have the people’s support for not raising taxes.  There’s $3 billion in additional revenue from existing taxes — you are right that that’s more than enough.  Nearly 2/3 of voters at the ballot box have repeatedly made it clear that the people oppose the Legislature raising taxes.  Nearly 2/3 of voters, especially those in legislative swing districts, will support you as long as you stand your ground.  Always remember that Inslee/Democrats/Big Labor/WEA-sponsored judges/the media want higher taxes but they only represent 1/3 of voters.  You represent the supermajority of voters who don’t support tax increases.  Thank you for what you’re doing – we are grateful you are listening to us.”

        The Senate Republicans and Democrat Tim Sheldon are doing exactly what we want.  Tell them that.
