Our Stupid Fucking Pointless Legislative Session

Governor Inslee Calls a Special Session After the Legislature Fails to Pass a Budget (or Do Much of Anything)

It wouldn't be if we could finally--and permanently--eliminate the GOP, their Tea Party goon squad, and two-faced Republic-rats like Rodney Tom.

And let's get rid of Tim Eyesore, too.

Thanks to that much-hated coup, Democrats were unable to tax the crap out of everything, saving their budget from an Inslee veto. At least that's what would have happened if he was telling the truth during his campaign.

MVET sounds nice, until you realize that it is a property tax, AKA another terribly regressive tax. I don't disagree with them on that, but probably not for their stated reasons. Just because a person has a now-crappy car from the 90s that cost $30,000 new, doesn't magically make them have the extra $120 a year (4% of the 10% depreciated value) on top of all the other fees just to own it. No matter how much you use it.

Not one friggin' comment about HB 1525??

Adult citizens who were adopted, are being screwed by the state legislature, again... and not one rag throughout the west side of the state can figure out how to write about.

The perpetual political games played by the career politicians in the Legislature & His Excellence Inslee will forever prohibit the responsabilities of this state government from being fulfilled... All at the expense of working individuals like me who foot the bill, while the wards of the nanny state demand more... Socialism is great until you run out of capitolist workers to provide the resources, but never mind that because the Workers Party will come to the rescue right?

@Jackdup, hah... really? Do you really believe that drivel you just said? Or are you trolling?

Really not surprised at the foolishness in the legislature, seems as if people in politics think they are *supposed* to go against the other group regardless of what they say. Fucking absurd at this point

Tell "your" legislative representatives to close all those needless and Feudalistic tax loopholes or they will be recalled and never voted for again. ---- http://www.ctj.org

What @10 said.

Maybe when state government runs half as efficiently as private enterprise, we can discuss new taxes.

@MiddleOfTheRoad:State governments are intentionally mismanaged by agents provocateur who are closeted Feudalists:they hope enough clueless persons such as yourself will think that the way to go is privatization for the Few/FEWdalism!!! ----- http:/www.alternet.org
