HOUSE BILL 1628 DOESN’T ROB FROM PETER TO PAY PAUL — IT ROBS PAUL TO PAY PAUL. Democrats are pushing a bill that makes housing more expensive so there’s more affordable housing. It’s nuts! Help me stop it – send emails to all 147 legislators. I also ask you to join me in testifying against it (or you can submit written testimony) — I show you how — it’s pretty easy. 

Also, I’ll be speaking at the Eastside Republican Club’s meeting on Tues, Feb 7, 6:30-8:30pm. It’ll be held at the Eagles Club in Kirkland (258 Central Way in Kirkland). Click on the image to learn more:

I’ll be testifying against this bill tomorrow (Tues, Feb 7, 10:30am).

I urge you to join me and testify against it by ZOOM. 

I show you how — it’s pretty easy.

I also implore you to back me up by sending emails to all 147 legislators telling them to STOP this nutty bill (House Bill 1628).

House Bill 1628 makes housing more expensive (raises property taxes) to pay for more affordable housing.

This doesn’t rob Peter to pay Paul — this bill actually robs Paul to pay for Paul.

It’s really nuts! 

First thing: send 2 separate emails: one to Senate and one to the House.

Copy and paste this into the Subject line:
I urge all legislators to oppose House Bill 1628 because it RADICALLY increases property taxes (making housing less affordable) to pay for more affordable housing. It’s nuts.  

1st email, send it to SENATORS: Copy and paste this into the “To:” line:

2nd email, send it to HOUSE MEMBERS: Copy & paste this into the “To” line:

What should you write in the body of your email? Copy & paste this (or write something on your own):

I urge all legislators to oppose House Bill 1628 because it RADICALLY increases property taxes (making housing less affordable) to pay for more affordable housing. It’s nuts! Voters have consistently rejected raising ANY taxes because we NEVER received the $30 Tabs we voted for 3 times. And because we’re all still recovering from the 900 days of Inslee’s one-man government. I’m against the legislature increasing any taxes or fees this session — we’re taxed enough already. The taxpayers of Washington cannot afford the insatiable tax appetite of Olympia.

Is it any wonder that Bully Bob Ferguson is trying so hard to impose a lifetime ban on all my future political activity? 

I really need your help to survive Bully Bob Ferguson’s litigation / persecution of me and my family.

The only reason we’re still here is thanks to the heartfelt prayers and generous support from friends like you.

Please donate to my legal defense fund today (see below).

Last August, when the AG took my house and drained all my bank accounts (I was allowed to keep $1500), things for me and my family shifted from REALLY WANTING help to DESPERATELY NEEDING help.

I urge you to help me survive this political persecution by donating to my legal defense fund so that Richard Sanders can get the AG’s ridiculously unconstitutional ruling overturned so this never happens to anyone else. 

Mail your check to: Tim Eyman Legal Defense Fund, 500 106th Ave NE #709, Bellevue, WA, 98004

I love you all.
