I swear to God, libs have to be Gods joke on humanity.
They'll probably implement this nonsense then whine about the hidden costs associated with it.
Yes, they'll vote to raise their taxes in support of big brother restricting anything, from driving their car to paying even more for energy, and all this in a State that exists on predominantly hydro energy.

Washington state’s proposal would charge industrial emitters $15 per metric ton on carbon emissions starting in 2020, ramping up by $2 per year until Washington state meets its climate goals. The revenue raised would go toward investing in clean energy, protecting clean water and forests, and helping to make sure the communities that suffer the most from carbon emissions prepare for the effects of wildfires and sea-level rise.

Yes folks, libs actually think oil companies pay taxes. :rolleyes:



A bunch of heavy boxes arrived in the Washington state capital on Monday morning. They were filled with thousands of petitions in support of the proposed “Protect Washington Act” — a first-of-its-kind “carbon fee.”

Initiative 1631 has collected nearly 380,000 signatures from Washington voters — 120,000 more than necessary for it to appear on the ballot this fall. If voters pass the measure in November, Washington would be the first state in the country to adopt anything like a carbon tax.

“We’re all set,” says Nick Abraham, communications director at the Yes on 1631 campaign. “It’ll take a week to two weeks to certify and verify all the signatures, and then we are officially on the ballot.

Here's the actual proposed Bill and the damage it proposes to the people.

Washington sent Patty Murray to congress. She might be the dumbest person to go to DC since Dick Durbin. Patty Murray cannot tie her own shoes and she wears Velcro sneakers.

Sadly, they don't even know the party is already dead. I'm still in awe of the fact just how many lbs still think the Dem party has a chance, at anything.
