  1. Well, that just about equals the $6 Billion surplus that existed at the end of 2004 before Gregoire/Dems spent it (and more) and added $8 Billion to the State’s $24 Billion budget within the first few months of taking office in January 2005.

    Just think, the State would feasibly actually have a balanced budget right now if the Queen/Dems had kept the budget of outgoing, multi-term Dem Governor Gary Locke instead of misspending the extra billions of tax dollars (existing and mistakenly projected) on give-aways and social-engineering entitlements.

  2. tck512, there has never been a $6 billion surplus nor anything remotely near that.

  3. Please state your source on this $6 Billion figure. Then, do us all a favor and stop listening to Fox (aka FAKE) News and the like. Also, what “give-aways and social engineering entitlements” are you referring to? Stuff like unemployment? Just curious to know who you’re jealous of, the guy that got laid off, or the guy that lost the ability to walk? See, they get State “entitlement” money.
