    This bill has no regards in to what kind of gas mileage a engine gets, and seeks to punish people who own large displacement vehicles.

    No regard to whether the large vehicles are used for what they are intended (carrying 6+ passengers or cargo).

    I moved out of Washington for a number of reasons. I still love the people, the scenery, the food, the outdoor activities ... but the politician and policies were killing me. I just wonder how long they can keep pushing everything higher and higher before it breaks the economy up there?

    Steve..........

    well it's a backassword approach........The put this mandatory minimum wage increase each year for the past 3 yrs ....which has created the highest wage in the states........

    So they think they can just keep getting it back in Taxes...........

    I just read today that the Governor sent to state a surplus budget of 1.2 billion......and the state wanted a 1 billion surplus...........

    But just keep raising taxes.............

    And by the way..........She was warning to tighten up.........WTF.......WHO.......THE STATE>>>>>>>>

    HN.........US!!!!!!!

    Thank god your out!!!!!

    Highest minimum wage in the nation, highest fuel prices in the nation, a proposed bill for license fees based on engine displacement, I read today they are considering toll booths to collect funds for bridges and road repair (not unheard of elsewhere but there has to be an end sometime).
