Voters alert

   With one of the hottest economies in the country, our Seattle region, King County, and Washington state can and probably should institute a state income tax, whereby those individuals, companies, corporations, and conglomerates making the most money would be the ones underwriting a reasonable and efficient budget for government services.

   Vote for Proposition I-695, follow up with a vote against those in office currently who are anti-I-695, then vote again, through the "initiative process," to create an income tax to insure that those who benefit the most will pay the most to support the system which benefits them.
