Change at taxpayer’s expense

Lisa Brown likes to describe herself as a “moderate” and “independent,” both words appeal to me. However, these words are new to the Lisa Brown who served for 20 years in our state legislature.

The DCCC, the campaign arm of the National House Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi, describes Lisa Brown as “one of the most prominent progressive voices in Washington State for over two decades.”

A “progressive” wants change. The GOP, too, wants change. Unfortunately, Lisa Brown wants change to occur at the expense of taxpayers. The GOP does not.

Lisa Brown has consistently voted to raise taxes to bring about the change she seeks. She even sued the voters when we attempted to repeal (through an initiative) tax increases she had spearheaded.

Join me and vote against anyone bringing about change at taxpayers’ expense.
