Now That The Election Is Over, They’re Coming For Our Money

by lewwaters

From her November 22, 2011 TownHall, Rep. Sharon Wylie (D. Wa. 49th) in reply to a question from an SEIU member, announces she will propose more taxes on a struggling middle class before laying off any state workers. Her claims of “Thinned the soup enough” fall flat with the recent revelation from Fact Check that many spending cuts were actually little more than reductions in proposed spending increases.

    But …. as I was reminded in an anonymous phone call after the election: “….The people have voted …..”

  2. And the first order of business in “special session”

    With the budget deficit we see ongoing, why would we expect them to do anything but propose more spending?
