WTF – Washington State Carbon Tax

The liberal jackasses in our states congress have managed to ram a Carbon Tax up our asses while everybody was orgasming over Obama getting elected! It is Washington State Vehicle License Fee Bill SB6900

Way to go you bastards. Of course all of the sponsor’s of the bill are our friends in the Democraptic party. Who would have guessed? Brought to you courtesy of Senators Tom, Kohl-Welles, Pridemore, Keiser, Kline.

Here's the link for contacting your representatives so that you can raise hell with them:

These scumbags need to get the message that our wallets have been raped enough by them. No more bending over and taking it!

Here is some of this shit they call legislation:
5 NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. A new section is added to chapter 46.17 RCW
6 to read as follows:
7 (1) A vehicle engine displacement fee must be paid and collected
8 annually for motor vehicles subject to the fee under RCW 46.16.0621,
9 except motor homes. The amount of the fee must be based upon the
10 vehicle engine size in liters, which is correlated with vehicle size
11 and vehicle emissions. The fee imposed under this section must be used
12 for transportation purposes, and may not be used for the general
13 support of state government. The vehicle engine displacement fee is
14 that portion of the fee, as reflected on the engine size in liters set
15 forth in the schedule provided in this section, that is in excess of
16 the fees imposed under RCW 46.16.0621 and 46.17.010. For vehicles
17 registered on or after January 1, 2009, the vehicle engine displacement
18 fee under this section is due at the time of initial vehicle
19 registration and any subsequent renewal of vehicle registration.
p. 1 SB 6900
1 Engine Size (liters) Rate Schedule
2 Up to 1.9 $0
3 2.0 - 2.9 $70
4 3.0 - 3.9 $225
5 4.0 - 4.9 $275
6 5.0 - 5.9 $325
7 6.0 - 7.9 $400
8 8.0 or over $600

9 (2) For the purpose of administering this section, the department
10 shall rely on the vehicle engine size in liters as provided by vehicle
11 manufacturers, or other sources defined by the department, to determine
12 the engine size in liters of each vehicle. The department shall adopt
13 rules for determining engine size in liters for vehicles that do not
14 have a manufacturer-provided engine size in liters.
15 (3) The vehicle engine displacement fee under this section is
16 imposed to provide funds to mitigate the impact of vehicle loads on the
17 state roads and highways, as well as encourage the reduction of vehicle
18 emissions and is separate and distinct from other vehicle license fees.
19 (4) The vehicle engine displacement fee collected under this
20 section must be deposited into the multimodal transportation account.

Now I am not sure if it actually got enacted into law, but it reads like it did. Perhaps it didn't but the writing is on the wall, they want more of your hard earned dollars in the worst way, and will stoop to any low to get it. It doesn't matter how it may impact you, just cough up the cash!

If you don’t raise hell with your rep’s you will get what you deserve. This crap ain’t long in coming to the rest of the states, just you wait and see!

I see a day coming, when there will be a shortage of rope!

More to follow as I calm down and research this travesty...

Update: It appears that this bill died in committee last year with no support from either the Majority or the Minorty. That does not mean that it will not return in some aborted form again this year. We all know how these types like to spend "We the People's" hard earned cash. Also, something like this poisonous tripe may surface in your state legislature. Pay attention, or reap what they have sown!

New Update:
Another interesting note: It seems state senator Tom lives in the Medina area of Seattle. Upscale, as in Bill Gates neighborhood! No wonder he thinks that we all are made of money!


  1. I love the pass they give to motor homes.

  2. Ugh... Killed or not, I'll bet it will show it's ugly head again... Bastards..... You should keep your Zook, no extra fee!

  3. I went ballistic when I saw they were trying to pull this off and immediately contacted every freaking representative in my district plus Murray and Can't Well.

    They sidelined it and SUPPOSEDLY it is dead.

    Can you imagine how much money a family with driving aged children who had their own cars would have had to pay out?
    THOUSANDS of dollars in some cases.

    I raised Holy Hell.
    I have a 67 Ford 3/4 ton with a 390 cubic inch engine that I rarely drive, that would have cost me a ton of money.
