Gov. Jay Inslee says he wants to fund education, transportation and clean energy (TNT, 1-14). I say he’ll have a hard time funding anything if the state Senate moves forward with its new rule to bar the passage of any new tax short of a two-thirds majority (TNT, 1-13).
I realize that the Senate Republicans have a low opinion of democracy, where majority rules apply, but when did we become a hayseed oligarchy where the majority is bossed around by the Yosemite Sam wing of the GOP caucus?
And here I was congratulating myself on not being a resident of California.
