Does this make any sense at all?
Why the State of Washington is in big trouble.
Have a look at these quotes from our "Not Really Elected" Governor, Christine Gregoire: (Taken from an article in the Seattle P-I)
OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Gov. Chris Gregoire, increasingly concerned that tax-break fever has gripped the Legislature, warned Monday that she'll use her veto pen if her fellow Democrats get carried away.
"I have been very clear that (granting) a tax break is spending money," she told a news conference a few days before the Senate Democrats roll out their budget. "At the end of the day, we have less revenue, no matter how you cut it."
Let me put that sentence into one continuous piece:
"I have been very clear that (granting) a tax break is spending money. At the end of the day, we have less revenue, no matter how you cut it."
........and she's our goobernator.
