Washington State has never had an income tax. We get along fine without one.

To even suggest enacting a State Income tax has cost several politicians an election. It is political suicide here.

I cringe when I hear what other states pay in income taxes, and sales tax, highway tolls, etc. These are East Coast ideas. They don't belong in the free wheeling West Coast.

Florida does not have a state income tax. Calif needs to expell all the money grubbers and they would be ok. AA
