Letter: We can't afford Democrats in power
Friday, September 7, 2012
We need change. Washington state had been pretty much insulated from the economic downturn across the country until four years ago. In spite of the tax-and-spend actions of the Democrats, we stayed on top — but nothing good lasts forever.
The Democrat policies have pushed Boeing to move its headquarters and subsequently much of its operations out of state.
The Democrats continue to raise taxes, adding regulations that stymie the economy.
We can no longer listen to the Democrats during the campaign season, as they will say anything to get your vote.
We cannot allow them to continue to ignore our initiatives. We vote against taxes and the Democrats vote them back in.
We have been four years in a repressed state -- in a repressed Washington state. It is time for a change.
The Democrats have had the control but have used it to continue the policies that have pushed Washington into this recession.
We cannot afford to vote Democrat again.
