After spending a year cratering morale by bashing and belittling all the work Law Enforcement officers do, Seattle is now trying to re-fund the Police.
Check out our release on the latest blunder by Democrats and how problems started to happen as soon as their anti-policing laws took effect:
“The laws were written very poorly, and the combination of them all at the same time has led to there being conflicts in clarity and in what was intended versus what was written.” – Kent Police Chief Rafael Padilla
Crime is increasing but the only thing State Democrats are concerned with is making it harder for Law Enforcement to do their jobs and making conditions more dangerous for EMS teams. This package of bad bills (now laws) goes into effect this Sunday.
Check out the latest piece from the Washington Policy Center’s Chris Cargill on Democrats ignoring the will of the voters and how that has motivated first time candidates to run for office:
Sen. Lynda Wilson: Costly new budget just signed by @GovInslee just made WA a more regressive place to live. People would have been far better off with the Republican approach…which offered tax relief, not new/higher taxes. #waleg #Washington #taxapalooza http://ow.ly/9vJ050EPQLJ
Jay Inslee on signing carbon legislation which has conservatively been estimated by respected consulting firms to raise the cost of gas by 95 cents/gal by 2028: “Don’t let anyone give you that swill that it is going to increase prices.” 2:07 pm 5/17/21 #waleg
And just like that, with a single-vote margin (25-24) and bipartisan opposition, an income tax passes off the Senate floor. Not an excise tax…an income tax. Something Washingtonians have voted down 10 times and still oppose according to a recent Elway Poll. #NoIncomeTax #waleg
For months conservatives have criticized WA Gov Inslee’s handling of the pandemic. But now even some Democrats are exasperated at the pace of reopening. As are some local officials.

“We are calling on Democrats and the governor to push back against the ‘defund the police’ movement, come to the table, and work with Republicans and the law enforcement community on solutions to address the problems created by their new policies.” #waleg https://jtwilcox.houserepublicans.wa.gov/2021/07/23/wilcox-and-braun-call-on-democrats-and-governor-to-fix-problems-created-by-controversial-police-related-bills/
