As the politicians in Olympia prepare to do what they do best, which is try and see how many more taxes they can heap on our backs, I wonder why we never hear them say they are going to clean up the tremendous government waste prior to coming to us for more money.
I guess if they actually did that, they would be admitting what we already know: that they don't know what it is they are supposed to be doing.
Speaking of taxes, someone explain to me why we need 98 House members and 49 senators with their big salaries and padded expense reports to manage this state? That doesn't include the governor and all the administrative expenses we have to pay for.
I get it that we are all supposed to be represented, but the reality is unless you are a teacher, a public employee or work at Boeing, you are rarely represented. We all deserve a tax break, and a good place to start is getting rid of the fat in Olympia.
