commented on Guest Editorial: Washington State Has a Morally Bankrupt Tax System, and Here's Why
@1/@16: No. A graduated income tax (more than one rate) would violate the state constitution's requirement for uniformity in taxation. But a single rate income tax (with an exemption at a certain level) is not unconstitutional at all. As @24 notes, voters rejected this. But voters reject a lot of things the first time around before eventually approving them. It's ok to run things past the voters again after a couple of years, and now would be a good time. Go Reuven!
