My St. Patrick’s Day testimony unloaded on the Democrats “Alice in Wonderland” legislative agenda this session. Stuff we oppose, they’re pushing. Stuff we want, they block. Watch whole thing — it’s less than a minute.

Fri, March 17, 2023

To: Our thousands of supporters throughout the state
(cc’d to the media, house & senate members, and Governor, and other candidates for office)

From: Tim Eyman, Fighting for Taxpayers for 26 years

So the Democrats’ held today’s crucial hearing at 8:00 am on St. Patrick’s Day to purposely minimize the number of regular people from participating (same thing they did on Valentine’s Day for the Wealth Tax).

The opponents of their bill only got 1 minute to speak (but supporters were allowed to talk for as long as they wanted).

In November 2016, the voters overwhelmingly rejected a Carbon Tax.

In November 2018, voters again said no to a Carbon Tax.

But in 2021, Inslee and the Democrats passed a Cap & Tax bill and a Carbon Tax bill – WHICH WERE EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT VOTERS HAD EXPLICITLY REJECTED.

And to get them to take effect immediately, Inslee violated the state Constitution by “line item veto’ing” the delays in the bills (individual words and parts of sentences were partially vetoed).

That’s illegal.

So I sued the Governor for abusing his power.

I was actually optimistic about my lawsuit (Eyman v Inslee) because he was found guilty of doing the exact same thing the year before by the state supreme court.

But AG Bob Ferguson blocked my lawsuit from getting a ruling from the judge.

But I had a fallback position: because this involved a tax increase ($3.9 billion), the AG was REQUIRED to notify the Secretary of State that a Tax Advisory Vote was MANDATED.

But Bully Bob refused arguing this wasn’t a “tax increase”, it was a “revenue enhancement”.

So I sued Bob Ferguson.

The lower court judge granted my motion for a temporary restraining order — he agreed that the AG was wrong to block the public vote.

Ferguson tried to brow-beat the judge into changing his ruling in the judge’s chambers (without me being present), but the judge refused.

But before the lower court judge could make his final ruling, Ferguson got the state supreme court to do something that was completely unprecedented: he got them to order the judge to rule against my motion before the judge had made a final decision.

So now the Democrat-dominated Legislature is implementing it with bills like today’s ESHB 1589.

So I testified against it.

I unloaded not just on this particular bill but on the Democrats “Alice in Wonderland” agenda this session. Because it’s all backwards — where up is down and down is up — policies the people oppose are getting pushed and passed (Pay-Per-Mile Taxes, Worldwide Wealth Tax, Carbon Taxes) but when it comes to policies the people support ($30 Tabs, Tax Advisory Votes, 2/3 vote for tax increases), they are either being ignored or repealed.

How did this happen?

Because of this:

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

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.
