Jeremy Lott — Do Washington state Democrats have a death wish with tax increases?

Do Washington state Democrats have a death wish? That’s the question many locals must be asking after the Democrat-controlled Senate held hearings last Thursday, with little notice, packed with supporters for a new bill that would impose a statewide income tax.

They tried to sell the proposal as a populist measure. The tax would only apply to wealthy earners and it would allow the state government to reduce the sales tax. By bringing the bill up so late in the legislative session – business is supposed to be completed by this Thursday – the Dems were not seriously trying to pass the bill. So why bring it up at all?
