Just think about all those poor school system employees who might have to get real jobs if massive tuition charges aren't approved. Why, they might have to do something of worth to get a paycheck. This is too much to expect of lifelong suckers of the public teat.... the govt employee. And professors might have to teach more than 2 hours a week! Horrors!

Those students must just learn now that their only purpose in life is to feed the maw of govt. All hail the govt and free health care!

Well, actually Kalif is like New York. Their tax rates are so high that raising them doesn't bring in more money. Kalif has a 10% sales tax now! Activity shifts and the State ends up with the same maximum revenue. As time passes the revenue begins to go down because business and people flee the State. NY has lost a million residents in the last few years. Major businesses are relocating their headquarters away from Kalif and NY in a veritable flood. Tax revenues go down and so the idiot politicians raise taxes again which drives more people and business from the State. This is a simple relationship that anyone except a politician or left-winger can understand.

We're in the upper 9's here though it varies by county. We have no State Income Tax though so I suppose that makes a difference.

Realistically between the sales tax, property tax, B&O tax, Licensing tax and a million different "user fees" we'd probably be better off with a flat rate state income tax. Of course living in The Peoples Democratic Republic of Seattle has it's benifits like free methadone and AIDS Needle Exchange vans parked next to the elementry schools with free condoms for the kiddies while they're taught about little Timmy who has Two Daddies......

They even changed the name of King County which was named after Rufus D King, an original settler who once had (gasp) a slave to M.L.King County who never set foot within a 1000 miles of the place, nor do we have a large Black population here. The went so far as to change the symbol of Metro King County from a stylized crown they've used forever to a postage stamp like visage of Dr. M.L. King in profile that quite frankly makes him look like a peeping tom......all at tax payers expense.

Good ol' White Guilt, I know I feel better.....
