Hey, Supermajority Democrats!

posted by on April 11 at 13:16 PM

A bill to keep tabs on corporate tax breaks by including those de facto expenditures in the budget, died in the House this session.

The bill, pushed by the liberal Tax Fairness Coalition, had 17 co-sponsors, including lead sponsor Rep. Sharon Tomiko Santos (D-37, South Seattle). Sanots’s bill was passed out of the Finance Committee to the Rules Committee, but leadership yanked it from Rules and sent it back to Finance, where it’s now, reportedly, wasting away.

Unfortunately, corporate graft tends to have bipartisan support.

Corporations are made up of people. Living, breathing, tax paying, child supporting people.

Pass it on.

living, breathing, individual tax paying, people don't have $1.1 million dollar tax subsidies written into the law on their behalf. But corporations do. Seem fair?

Pass it on.

Do you cover any of the good stuff going on down in Oly? I mean without being snarky? Maybe you should go back to covering City Hall.
