KLPW Listeners Support Prop R

The results of the KLPW poll are in. We asked our listeners what they thought about Proposition R for the Washington School District. Prop R will ask 2 questions. The first will be to approve a 9 million dollar no tax increase bond issue that will be used for various improvements throughout the district. The second question will be a 40 million dollar 25 cent tax increase that will pay for a new middle school and other improvements. 61% of our listeners voted yes on both questions. 36% voted no for both. This means our listeners are overwhelming supportive of Prop R and would like to see the school district build a new middle school. The split votes between yes on Question 1 and no on Question 2 were almost nonexistent, showing our listeners are either for or against the 40 million dollar increase. Washington voters will decide on Proposition R during the April 2 election.

I am a woman. I would be more than happy to have more money in my paycheck. Too bad the Paycheck Fairness Act won't do that for me. Who wants "equality" if it comes because everyone makes less money?

Nonetheless, the Paycheck Fairness Act is the latest weapon in the War On Women, part II--2014 election style.
