Last week, the state Legislature finally adjourned the record-breaking 176-day legislative session. Throughout all four sessions, Shift worked hard to shine the light on Democrats’ irresponsible tax-raising agenda. We ensured our readers knew the facts, relentlessly reminding Washingtonians of the truth: our state did not and does not need new taxes to meet its basic funding needs.
Our efforts paid off. Media outlets across the state agree: Senate Republicans and their message of responsible government dominated the legislative session. As a result, Jay Inslee and his fellow Democrats were forced to accept a state budget that contains no new taxes.
That’s something to celebrate. But, our work must continue. Democrats will keep pushing for new taxes. In fact, Inslee wrapped up the legislative session by calling for future tax increases. Shift is committed to keeping up our fight to shine a bright spotlight on the Left’s tax-raising priorities.
You can count on us to remain diligent. Can we count on your support?
And, be sure to check out and share our top stories of the week.
