Statement from Opportunity for All Coalition President Collin Hathaway
Opportunity for All Coalition (OFAC) President Collin Hathaway released the following statement in response to Washington’s Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s motion calling for the dismissal of OFAC’s lawsuit against the illegal state capital income tax:
“Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s motion claiming that OFAC’s lawsuit against the illegal capital gains income tax is political, rather than illegal is completely off base. Our state’s top lawyer should know that capital gains are considered income in Washington and that any income tax over 1 percent is unconstitutional. That’s not politics, it’s the law. We are confident that the courts will reject the state’s motion and instead uphold the law.”
Don’t believe the hype – this will be a tax on everyone and you’re next! This income tax will hurt the whole economy and do nothing about regressivity. We can do better and create more opportunities for ALL Washingtonians!
