WA VOTERS SCORE HUGE VICTORY!
We congratulate Let's Go Washington, WSRP Chairman Jim Walsh, our team, and most of all Washington voters for chalking up a huge victory for our state.
Jim Walsh is helping to lead an effort sponsoring and promoting 6 statewide initiatives and for many months we all have been working hard to get them qualified.
The fruits of that labor are ripening, Washington voters have scored a huge victory, and all six initiatives are on pace to qualify to be on next year's ballot.
Today Jim and crew turned in the first lot of tens of thousands of petitions filled with signatures for the initiative that STOPS THE HIDDEN GAS TAX. That's Jim's initiative to repeal Inslee's Cap-and-Tax Scheme
Look at the skyrocketing cost to fill up your gas tank, cost to pay your utility bills, and cost to buy ANYTHING at the store and it's all PROOF POSITIVE Inslee lied.
The voters have TWICE rejected new carbon taxes at the ballot box. With this initiative, we want to give the voters their 3rd opportunity to reject them.
Realize that if not for AG Bob Ferguson, we would already know how voters feel about Inslee's Cap-and-Tax Scheme. Ferguson did everything to prevent the voters from voting on it last year:
All six fantastic initiatives are ready to sign at the SCRP Office - The goal is to get 400,000 + signatures for each of the six by December 19, 2023.
Of the six, four are tax reforms, two are pure policy, three repeal taxes, one reinstates a ban on local income taxes, one restores the ability of police to pursue suspects and one protects and restores parents' rights in the education system. More Info Here
WSRP CHAIR JIM WALSH UPDATE: Yesterday was a great day for citizens and common-sense voters everywhere in Washington State. Initiative 2117 - to repeal the cap and trade gas tax scheme - was filed with the Secretary of State's office.
You can click on the video link here to hear from me directly as I went live yesterday from the Sec. of State's office with the receipt of filing.
With 90,000 more signatures submitted than what is legally needed, the initiative is well on its way for full qualification and will first head to the legislature in 2024.... and will most likely not be acted on by the Democrat majority. This tax scheme was one of their prized accomplishments from the 2021 legislative session.
When the Democrat majority refuses to pass this initiative into law in Olympia, the initiative will head to a statewide vote on the November ballot.
A few quick notes before you watch the video below (the media is already in full-spin mode to defend the Democrat scheme):
- This cap and trade gas tax scheme is what is making Washington's price of living the highest in the nation alongside California.
- This cap and trade gas tax scheme has created over $1.5 BILLION for Olympia Bureaucrats in this year alone - paid for by working families - and it doesn't actually reduce emissions. If Democrats were actually successful with their climate programs, Jay Inslee wouldn't have to scrub his website of failures.
- It punishes working families and doesn't actually reduce emissions in our state. People still need to drive to work, and go to the grocery store, and drop kids off at school, and heat their homes.
- It doesn't just stop at our cars. It's directly driving up the price of our groceries and other goods in the supply chain. And it is driving up your home utility costs - which is something Bob Ferguson wanted to hide from you on your utility bills. VIDEO HERE
Petitions filed for initiative to erase Washington’s ambitious climate law - Backers say they turned in nearly 420,000 signatures. The measure seeks to end the cap-and-invest program that’s brought in nearly $1.6 billion this year for pollution-fighting efforts
