Letter: No need for new taxes




Last month the Republicans, without the help of a single Democrat, passed a historic tax bill that will give tax relief to approximately 80 percent of American workers. The bill also reduces corporate taxes to a historic level designed to add new business in the United States, including Washington state.

Just seven days into the New Year was a letter in Our Readers’ Views by Mark Leed, supporting new taxes (“Support putting price on carbon,” Jan. 7). This is a tax on carbon that is apparently supported by Gov. Jay Inslee and a liberal coalition planning an initiative.

When are the liberals going to learn that the American people are tired of taxation and initiatives that hamper job growth?
