Strong rebuke of Inslee’s mandate by our Republican leaders in the State House and Senate:
“Today’s vaccine deadline threatens critical services, public safety”
Inslee’s vaccine mandate puts the squeeze on everyone that uses state emergency services, buses, school buses, ferry service and more.
Taking a “moral stance for medical freedom & personal choice,” this 17-year veteran of the WA State Patrol tearfully says goodbye, forced out by @GovInslee’s vaccine mandate. His wife is the dispatch operator (15-year veteran) & is also out.
Both will be on my radio show today.
State Senator Chris Gildon (R – Puyallup) joins the podcast this week to discuss vaccine mandates, anti-policing laws, the Long-Term Care Tax, and ways Republicans in the Legislature are fighting government overreach in Olympia.

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.

Chris Cargill in @SpokesmanReview: Gov. Inslee may like one-man rule, but that doesn’t mean it’s good for the state. There are 147 elected members of the Legislature, but stunningly the majority have willingly put themselves on the sidelines. http://ow.ly/aMiS50Gti71 #waleg
