Have you heard that because Jay Inslee quit his job in Congress it will cost you, the taxpayer, $770,000? The state has to run a special election for a new Congressman even though that person will only fill the seat for a month. This is outrageous and we think you should send Inslee the invoice! Ex-Congressman Inslee has enough money in both of his campaign accounts to send the State of Washington a check to cover the cost of the special election and we think he should do that instead of sticking his bill with the taxpayers.
Recently at a small gathering of friends, the subject of Communist China came up. One of the participants was gushing with enthusiasm for the Communist government and economy. Speaking to the great progress Communism was making for their citizens. My jaw dropped and thankfully the subject as well. However, it does remind me of how some people confuse China’s growing economy with freedom in Communist countries.
