The Moderate Washingtonian

Outlook on politics and elections in the state of Washington from an overall centrist viewpoint. My views tend to be libertarian in nature, but at the same time are largely nonpartisan.

Gov taxed us too much again

Just like how overtaxing gave us a "surplus" that legislative Democrats blew in this year's short session, the state budget director announced recently that the expected looming budget deficit for next biennium will not be a problem because Gregoire's new taxes from 2005 took too much of our money. Now that the citizenry has been overtaxed for two consecutive years, how about cutting us a break, Gov? Not to sound like a broken record, but unexpected budget surpluses are not something I like to see when you busted your campaign tax pledge last year. I just hope next biennium will not see even more new spending and/or taxes, given that I have little hope the state GOP is competent enough to make significant gains in this fall's elections.
