US Congressman Jim McDermott will be on Seattle’s Capitol Hill Saturday, May 7 to have coffee with residents and business leaders. From 10-11 a.m., you are invited to get some coffee to talk about current issues in Congress and let him know how you would fix the federal deficit, fund health care, etc!
You can RSVP and learn more about the event via this Facebook page.
McDermott has recently proposed an itemized income tax receipt, showing tax payers where their money goes when they pay for it. The receipt would have a couple dozen categories and would breakdown each taxpayer’s income tax payment into amounts spent on each area of government spending. According to our news partners at the Seattle Times, the bill is intended to expose many misconceptions about government spending.
