Once again, in WA state, there has been a tax revolt.
People are tired of paying unnecessarily high taxes on things like car registration tabs.
We have had two initiatives in this state in the last several decades where the people have clearly said, “ENOUGH!” Twice the citizens of the state (not just one city and county) have said, “$30 – no more, no less.” This is one of the very few times that the rest of the state has told Seattle and King County what it wants versus the other way around, where the population of Seattle and King County out vote the rest of the state to dictate what happens in areas around the state.
So, the latest version passed of the car tabs issue passed on Tuesday, again.
And for what will be the second time, the government is going to sue (yes, you read that right, the government) to get their taxes back. Let that sink in. The government is going to sue to stop the will of the people, who used the democratic process and voted on it, just so they can get their funding back.
If that doesn’t smack of government abuse and overreach, I don’t know what does.
It just goes to show you, once you give the government the ability to oversee your rights, freedom, and money…
…you’ll lose all three.
