Senator – you sent one letter in Feb, then nothing. Don’t tell WA moms you care about this when you’ve spent more time talking about Daylight Savings than fighting for them! It’s time to send a new mom to DC who fights for and cares about the concerns of every day Washingtonians. https://twitter.com/murraycampaign/status/1526982963061264384
Since February, I’ve been demanding answers about our baby formula crisis, & no family should be struggling to find the formula their kid needs. I’m doing everything I can to not only get solutions for families & put an end to this crisis, but to make sure it never happens again.
Democrat Governor Jay Inslee has had emergency powers for 809 days
During a presser Weds, Inslee said he won’t reduce gas taxes despite having a budget surplus & some of the highest prices in the US
He also refused to cancel the vax mandate for WA employees
Yikes. Thanks @JoeBiden and @RepKimSchrier. https://twitter.com/foxnews/status/1527023720241549323

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.
