Don't let the super-rich take $500 million a year from Washington's kids and working parents. Working parents, kids, and their teachers can't take another setback.
But now Tim Eyman is threatening to take $500 million/year from Washington's childcare, early learning, and schools and give it to the super-rich. We can't, we won't, let him get away with it.
Washington already has the worst tax system in the nation. The poorest pay the biggest share in taxes, while the richest pay the least.
Washington State passed a modest capital gains tax on stock market profits of the super-rich. Washington's capital gains tax makes sure the wealthiest pay their share in taxes, like the rest of us.
It provides parents with more affordable childcare so they can get back to work, boost schools and education for all of our kids.
By putting more money into families' wallets, it is helping grow our local economies and creating another 20,000 jobs.
Now Tim Eyman says he wants to take all of that away just to line his own pockets, and the bank accounts of the richest 0.1% in Washington. We cannot, we will not, let him get away with it.
We stand with Washington's kids, working parents, and teachers against Tim Eyman.
