Inslee already lying


Jay Inslee has set some kind of record. After only one day in office the new governor is already lying.

He says that extending the "temporary" tax increases of Chris Gregoire is not a tax increase. Never mind that the net affect is taking money out of the pockets of taxpayers and putting in the government coffers.

Inslee has learned the art of political doublespeak well after his congressional stint. It's too bad he hasn't learned how to tell the truth.

The Washington voters in their benign ignorance have put in office the lesser of the two candidates. Now we all get to suffer over the next four years.
