Dori vs Rep. Pollet: Why Washington property taxes are higher

Yesterday I took part in a lively debate with local radio show host Dori Monson.

“Well, there are two things people need to know,” Pollet said. “First, you have to remember that last June the Senate Republicans said the only way they would meet the constitutional requirements to fund our children’s education was with this massive property tax swap. They didn’t want to consider alternatives and they held us hostage until the government was about to shut down in our state. We didn’t have much of a choice. We talked them out of about half of a property tax increase.”
