Historically, all of the tax dollars in Washington State have been put into the big banks, such as Bank of America. Our money has generated reliable profits for the banks instead of funding people and projects in Washington State.
The big banks wrecked the economy and created a disaster for the people of Washington State and across the country. It’s unconscionable and unwise to continue to be dependent upon Bank of America and Chase Manhatton.
Let’s keep our money working for us in Washington State!
