Gregoire’s pledge won’t be last word on taxes
Posted by Liberty on December 16, 2008
“True to her campaign promise, Gov. Chris Gregoire plans this week to release a balanced budget that does not rely on new taxes to deal with a $5.8 billion deficit.
But that doesn’t mean taxes won’t be increased. And lawmakers could raise them without breaking Gregoire’s promise, provided voters go along with the idea.”
So on the one hand, we hear continuously about how bad the economy is and how people are signing up for food stamps, clearing out the food banks and getting behind on the mortgage. But…our esteemed legislators consider raising taxes an option.
