Does anyone think that such an irresponsible plan well actually help heal the widening rift between the Soviet Socialist Republic of King County and the rest of the state in general... and Eastern Washington in particular?
Nothing was said about a Referendum Clause on this legislation. Does it take rocket science to figure out why?
Joel Connelly attempts to remind us that Eastern Washington has forgotten how much help they've received "from the west side." Of course, most of his examples are totally bogus, but that's beside the point.
Jacking up these taxes and fees, FURTHER penalizing larger vehicles (guess what.... heavier vehicles are ALREADY penalized... they have to buy more fuel... and therefore, they all pay more of the gas tax) without a vote... (and mark my words.... there will be NO vote... neo-comms are not interested in the will of the people if that will conflicts with their agenda) and doing so because of Seattle's $6 BILLION dollar requirement for TWO transportation projects (Alaskan Way Viaduct and yet another 520 Bridge) will do nothing but increase the divide between us... nothing but harm those on the East side who have the farthest to drive the most...
Clearly, the ultra-leftist liberals like Rep. Dave Upthegrove simply do not care. Yet, they are safe in their semi-socialist, society-engineering seats, so they do not fear the wrath of those they would injure to fix THEIR problems.
Well done, Dave. I can't think of a thing you and your fellow ultra-leftists could have done or proposed to make matters worse. Congrats.
