Kitsap County Republican Party
BELLEVUE, WA, July 15 – Susan Hutchison, the Chairman of the Washington State Republican Party, issued the following statement:
Governor Inslee is lashing out at the media for accurately reporting on the budget agreement. When even traditional Democratic allies at the Seattle Times report on the success of the GOP, the Governor is playing the sore loser today with three tweets chiding the press for simply reporting the obvious facts. This is what he objects to:
Inslee's carbon tax? - NO!
Inslee's capital gains income tax? - NO!
Inslee's record $1.5 billion tax increase? - NO!
Republican budget with no new taxes? - YES!
Republican budget that cuts tuition for higher education? - YES!
Republican budget that fully funds education without raising taxes? - YES!
Governor Inslee has already shown that he is the Governor who can't govern. And now, we see that he is the Governor who can't accept that the people of Washington were the big winners this year in Olympia. He should accept the defeat of his left wing agenda graciously.
