One Reply to “House Debate on The People's Budget”
We need to hold our legislators accountable.
We should ask Inslee, Larsen, Dicks, and Smith why they voted Nay.
That’s something that, maybe, the WA Dems or KCDems shoujld organize, no?
It’s hard to be enthusiastic about Democrats who are, at best, centrist. I’ll vote for them over Republicans, but I won’t go out of my way to support them. That’s natural.
