“RE: There’s now another huge reason to ensure the success of our 2/3 Constitutional Amendment Initiative.
Last week, a mega-liberal initiative was filed. It’s a carefully crafted measure that guarantees billions of dollars in higher taxes. Here’s a story about it: EVERETT HERALD, April 7, 2014: BACKERS OF SMALLER CLASS SIZE WORK ON BALLOT MEASURE — “But the initiative carries a potentially large price tag and no means of generating revenue to pay for it. It could cost nearly $2.9 billion in the next two-year budget to pay for the added teachers and staff, (and) the tab would rise to $7.1 billion in the 2017-19 budget cycle.” http://heraldnet.com/article/20140407/NEWS01/140409275).
THAT’S HUGE! Even before this, they are pushing for $3-$5 billion in higher taxes next year. This brand new initiative makes those tax increases EXPONENTIALLY higher. And THOSE INCREASES ARE ON TOP OF the massive $10-$12 billion in increased gas taxes.
We have a tremendous opportunity to protect ourselves from ALL these higher taxes with our 2/3 Constitutional Amendment Initiative. It’s the best way to protect everyone from next year’s endless parade of tax hikes. When it comes to Olympia raising taxes, next year is completely terrifying.
