I-1185: Looks like the citizens of Washington State remain committed to driving our state into the ground by hamstringing the legislature.
Talk about voting against your own best interests. The EU has shown that austerity doesn't work. Stimulus does. Vote NO on I-1185!


California has this kind of law. It is the reason why California is going broke and part of the reason for the deficit. Good Government takes money, informed legislators. The voters tend to vote for programs they want but against raising taxes. Government funding has already been cut to the bone. We do not need this bill. It will lead to a Califoniadevastation.
