Tim Eyman pushes to permanently prohibit WA income, carbon taxes
OLYMPIA, Wash. – Tim Eyman, a right-wing political activist in Washington who ran for governor this year, is setting his sights on 2021.
Eyman revealed on Wednesday that he intends on pursuing two initiatives next year in an effort to permanently block any attempts to impose income or carbon taxes in Washington state.
The text of the proposed income tax measure says:
“The people strongly oppose the constant effort by politicians to create and impose new taxes on already struggling taxpayers. This measure would prohibit the state and any local government from imposing a tax on an individual’s or household’s personal income and prohibit the department of revenue from collecting revenue from any such prohibited tax. “
Eyman is pushing the initiatives with his political action committee “Permanent Offense.” He feels confident they will collect enough signatures to get the initiatives on the ballot.
PC: Tim Eyman, WSU Fraternity event
“Yes, that’s me 32 years ago tossing a guy twice my size at a WSU fraternity event. It’s a perfect metaphor for what we can accomplish together next year — and that’s to toss Inslee’s Tax Schemes.”
“The fight continues on 30 dollar tabs. We filed a motion for reconsideration to take it back to the Supreme Court Justices,” he said in the video.
Meanwhile, Eyman has also begun soliciting public donations to his “Defense Fund” as he faces legal challenges with the state.
