Yesterday, I went to Hillary’s political rally at the Machinists’ Union Hall in Everett
Like I said on Monday, I’m a major political junkie. So on Sunday, I went to Bernie Sanders’ political rally in Seattle. It was enormously fun.
Yesterday, I found out about a Hillary event and said to myself “Why not?” So I trekked over to the Machinists’ Union Hall in Everett. I stood in a long, long line waiting for hours to get in.
And whaddya know, along comes Hillary to greet our little section of people who were standing in line waiting to get in.
Can you believe it? I was close enough to put the handcuffs on her myself. 🙂
Here’s the group of Hillary supporters I hung out with while in line and while in the union hall:
Here’s a couple more photos from my perch in the back:
Jack, Mike, and I are laser-beam focused on fighting for taxpayers in every way possible.
We firmly believe that our initiatives give the taxpayers much needed leverage in the tug-of-war over taxes in our state.
Bernie and Hillary ain’t my cup of tea but listening to them and talking with their supporters gives me a greater understanding of the voters of our state.
There are plenty of their supporters who vote for our initiatives. Frankly, none of our initiatives would pass if not for a bunch of their folks voting for them (a fact that must drive our opponents crazy).
My big take-away: what we all have in common is this: we’re all struggling right now. These are tough, tough economic times. There’s simply no feeling of comfort or stability. It’s a time of tremendous uncertainty and fear and angst.
But rather than acknowledging the taxpayers’ trepidation and their obvious flashing yellow signal they’re sending, Olympia is gearing up to raise taxes $3.5 billion next year. It’s absolutely nuts. And not surprisingly, they’re not talking about their tax-hiking plans until after the 2016 election.
Jack, Mike, and our entire team are committed to protecting taxpayers with our follow-up initiatives “Tougher To Raise Taxes” and “Bring Back Our $30 Car Tabs.” Without them, taxpayers are completely vulnerable to Olympia’s insatiable tax appetite.
We are junk-yard dogs when it comes to this stuff. So you can count on us to keep trying.
But whether we continue to succeed or not is up to you. We will keep winning on behalf of taxpayers as long as your financial support continues. Please make a donation today. With your help and support, we have accomplished extraordinary things for the taxpayers of Washington. Help us continue.
