Now, more than ever, Washingtonians are relying on health, nutrition, transportation and other government-funded services to stay healthy, make ends meet, and get back on their feet. This is the time to invest in our safety net, not unravel it.
Keep the heart of Washington pumping by making sure money is flowing into our communities. We can do that by avoiding reckless cuts to services, infrastructure, and jobs that we all depend on;
Pull together, as we have done in the past, to make sure that no matter what we look like or where we come from everyone has an opportunity to thrive;
Balance our upside-down tax code – which requires low- and middle-income Washingtonians to pay up to a 7 times higher percentage than the wealthy do in taxes – by asking the wealthiest few to pay more in taxes. When individuals and businesses that are seeing record profits contribute more, everyone benefits.
Legislators have a straight-forward choice: Cut spending, which hurts people, families, and the economy OR raise taxes on those at the top to fund essential services, keep people working, and boost our economy. Tell them to make the right choice and ask everyone to do their part. Invest in Washington Now!
