Ah, look at what our Democratic controlled legislature is cooking up for us in Olympia:
SJR 8209 "Amending the Constitution to allow an income tax" Just what we need.
SB 5106 "Requiring emergency preparedness planning for service animals and household pets" Oh, brother.
HJR 4203 "Amending the Constitution to provide for four-year terms for members of the House of Representatives" Heck, why should they even run for reelection? Just let the Democratic Party appoint them.
HB 1116 "Creating a plan to increase the homeownership rate to seventy-five percent by 2020" And a chicken in every pot!!
SJR 8205 "Relating to the constitutional provisions regarding initiatives and referendums" Next, they'll deport Tim Eyman and all Republicans.
SB 5069 "Extending retirement benefits to domestic partners" Heck, throw it open to everybody. It's only taxpayer's money, so who cares?
SB 5067 "Requiring the use of headlights when windshield wipers are used" Washington will NOT be out-Nanny Stated by anyone!!
SB 5063 "Removing gender references" They're FireFIGHTERS, for the last time, not FireMEN
Here a couple of my favorites:
HB 1111 "Determining the best interests of a corporation" In addition to shareholders, they want to include "Community and societal considerations, including, without limitation, the impact of any action upon the communities in or near which the corporation has offices or operations." Lovely. Karl Marx would be so proud.
HB 1119 "Achieving economic security through income sufficient to meet basic needs" Sure, we have the highest minimum wage in the country, but we really need a LIVING WAGE, just like Moscow.
