That’s the only explanation for his scheme to plunder the State pension system to invest in green industries.
I’ve always considered Jay Inslee to be something of a one trick pony – green jobs all the way, baby! Even so, I was shocked when I heard his plan to risk the financial future of thousands of public employees to finance his pet agenda. Given the fact that it’s recently been revealed that the State pension system is underfunded by $50 billion, his proposal is not only moronic, but shockingly reckless as well
Face it…it’s not as though Inslee has proven to be the Green Oracle. Lori Sotelo, writing at Northwest Daily Marker, has complied a list of Inslee’s failures to accurately predict market place winners and losers. Even the Seattle Times Editorial Board, who rather confusingly endorsed Inslee in 2010, notes that the plan “abounds with unnecessary risk.”
One almost has to wonder if Inslee is even peripherally aware of the monumental issues our state faces.
