Seattle teachers should blame Democrats for cost of living

Seattle teachers are striking for more pay. One protester was interviewed asking why they are protesting. The teacher says cost of living in Seattle keeps going up. Is it the party the west-side of the state keeps electing year after year being the Democratic Party?

When Democrats in government spend more, the cycle continues, where Democrats find ways to collect more from businesses and individuals. They impose more taxation and regulation costs on fees that everyone must pay. Businesses then have to adjust the costs incurred and pass it on to consumers causing the cost of living to rise. Look at what our federal government has done over the past two years with President Biden in the White House and Democrats control both the House and Senate under Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

Democrat failed policies have caused significant increase in fuel costs along with the inflation we have seen in price for goods and services we all pay for.

What happens when Democrats in government spend? They keep spending and increase more debt.

What happens when businesses and people spend? They become aware of their debt and begin to cut their spending.

It’s sad to see teachers protesting in the Seattle area where kids are the ones who are being hurt not getting their education. Until the voters consider my points I’ve shared, we will continue to go down this downward path. I sincerely believe it’s time for the people to be more conservative and begin to vote Democrats out of office.
