A little bit of courage…

…a very little bit. Too damn little. But a little bit, and some of it from one of my very own State Reps (we get two per up here in the upper left). Via Kathleen at the NPI Advocate...
Some legislators aren’t waiting to see which way the wind is blowing and are standing up for what’s best for Washington. Senators from both sides of the state, Lisa Brown (D-Spokane) and Jeanne Kohl-Welles (D-Seattle), and Representative Maralyn Chase (D-Shoreline) advocated for a state income tax during the recent legislative session.
Yep, Maralyn's mine. Good on her.

Good on all of 'em.

Did you Democrats ever find a tax that you didn't like? The people are already overtaxed and you want more money for all of your corrupt politicians to get their grubby hands on.

Well, sure, John. I don't like the B&O tax at all, or the sales tax much, or sin taxes for the most part. If the current state syatem here worked, despite its inequities, that might be one thing, but we're doubly cursed with a grossly unfair system that's also unreliable and inadequate.

There will be taxes, don'cha know? Might as well get it right.
