    because, as a lifelong Washingtonian (aged 49), I have seen this issue come and go with the decades - and the answer, from the voters, is always the same.

    We don't trust the politicians to keep the new income tax on those high-wage earners. We fear that, with time, the level of income it is applied to will drop, until we are a State with both a Sales Tax and an Income Tax.

    No way around it, I just can't see an Income Tax becoming law - at least not by Voter Initiative. Not by Legislative act either, because the politicians know the how the voters will react - they'll throw them out of office.
