Gov debate question 7: Raise taxes

Inslee: I do not support raising taxes. I do support looking at some older corporate loopholes that were approved 60 years ago and may not make sense now. We are going to continue to grow, and as we grow we get older, demand additional health care and home care services. We need to be judicious when we make promises and stop providing seniors home care.

McKenna: That's certainly not what I'm proposing. I'm proposing we put some reasonable limits on non-education. He says he's not proposing raising taxes. Gregoire and Lowry said they weren't proposing during the election, they did it when they got in office. I'm not proposing, and I will not propose tax increase. People are hurting out there. Voters aren't accepting (higher taxes) and I'm not accepting it.
