Join Bill Gates Sr. in supporting I-1098
I am sure you understand how difficult it is to make a living without a basic education. These kids who do not complete high school barely stand a chance in what is becoming an increasingly complex world. We simply cannot afford to have 20% of our kids lacking the basic skills they need to succeed. We are better than this. And we need to fix this problem now.
That is why your support of Initiative 1098 is so essential. Please join our fight today: https://www.upwardstech.net/yeson1098
Initiative 1098 will provide $2 billion dollars a year to tackle our education problems and restore funding cuts to healthcare services. That will mean smaller class sizes and more individual attention for our children. It will mean more widespread early learning opportunities so that all kids show up to kindergarten prepared to succeed in school and life. Overall, it will mean fewer kids will slip through the cracks. I know you agree our kids deserve a better education than what they are getting today and I-1098 will give them that.
In addition to dedicating funds for education and healthcare, I-1098 will provide tax cuts to those middle-class families and small businesses who are struggling. Under I-1098, Washington families will receive a 20% tax cut in the state portion of their property tax and 80% of businesses including small businesses will have their B&O tax eliminated.
Initiative 1098 will keep the promise to our kids by restructuring our tax system and only modestly taxing the wealthiest 1.2% of Washingtonians. The tax applies only to income above $200,000 for individuals and $400,000 per couples. By law, not a penny below that amount will be taxed.
Can you make a $25 donation so we can ensure our children's future? https://www.upwardstech.net/yeson1098
Together we will give our kids the education they deserve and give our small businesses the tax break they desperately need during these tough times.
