BUDGET: Republicans incapable of state business

So we are within days of a possible state shutdown because the policies of the Republican Party are so disgusting that the Legislature is blocked. They refuse to generate the reasonable revenue to run the state and instead opt to run us into the ground. This is completely absurd and unnecessary.

I vote for running Tim Eyman out of Washington on a rail. He is the worst problem facing Washington. For the promise of pocket change he has deceived Washington voters and has made himself wealthy by insulting and denigrating public servants. He’s a for-hire thug, camera-hog crybaby who is strangling the state. His fellow Republicans are currently unfit for public office because they refuse to do the state’s necessary business.

I vote for abolishing the sales tax and instituting a state income tax so that state revenue is generated by those who can afford it and not by placing a disproportionate burden of the unemployed and lower class.
