Anything to keep Washington from turning into a New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts or California is good in my book.

My understanding, and I really need to read it again, is it would limit the amount of city, county, and state revenue to the amount it collected the year prior plus inflation.
His intent is that revenue only increase in proportion to population growth and inflation. With surpluses used to lower property taxes. Voter approved increases (levys?) are excluded.
Right wrong or indifferent, the state brought this on themselves with a record of wasteful spending, high taxes and stupid programs. All under Democrat control I might add.

I really posted this thread to get your opinions and get me out of reading it.

I like the idea. I like the notion of executing irresponsible bureaucrats in the public square even more.

On the face of it I've always liked his initiatives. Everyone was all excited about 30 dollar tabs but there were serious unintended consequences to it. As a side note, I just paid $85 yesterday for tabs.

Tim, Tim, Tim...please keep you Initiatives simple:


Initiative #1:
The voters of Washington State hereby approve a 1,000 year MORATORIUM on taxes.

Initiative #2:
The voters of Washington State hereby approve a 1,000 year MORATORIUM on fees.

Nope that is the whole thing right there.

I've voted for some, and against some based on the fine print. I like this one, but I didn't read the whole thing yet.
