INSLEE DEALS ANOTHER BLOW TO TAXPAYERS
BELLEVUE – Chairman Caleb Heimlich released the following statement in regards to Jay Inslee’s budget proposal.
“Governor Inslee continues to make it clear he is using the taxpayers to bankroll his political ambitions. Today he unveiled another half-baked plan to win favor with liberal Democratic presidential primary voters,” said Heimlich.
“$3.7 billion in new taxes to support a 21 percent increase in unnecessary government spending is just reckless. It is unfathomable that the supposed leader of our state would continue to propose policies that will jeopardize our economic growth. Unfortunately, at the end of the day, hardworking Washingtonians will pay the price for Inslee’s shameless political ambition,” Heimlich stated
