Jay Inslee is spending this week talking about all the taxes he wants to raise to pay back his campaign contributors by growing the size of state government. Last Friday, he gave his liberal friends some talking points for how to make the case for higher taxes without it sounding like they are raising taxes:
It’s all about making “the polluters pay.”
Of course, by “polluters,” Jay means anyone who drives a car, or buys gasoline, or heats their home with natural gas, or runs a business that uses electricity.
So when you hear Jay’s Seattle friends talk about how raising taxes will help our economy, that his billion dollar tax plans will be a “two-fer” or “three-fer” for all Washingtonians, understand it’s more like a “woofer” for anyone who pays taxes in this state.
Jay Inslee’s budget is already looking like a dog.
