On the way in to work yesterday, I was listening to the Dave Ross show (a local Seattle radio talk show). Dave was interviewing Repblican state Senator Mike Hewitt. They were discussing Washington State's financial problems, and Dave asked Senator Hewitt if there were any tax increases that senate Republicans would support. One of the examples that Mr. Hewitt came up with was adding highway taxes to electric vehicles. This was somewhat ironic, as I was in mine while listening. Anyway, if taxing us is an increase that even Republicans can get behind, it can't be long until it's enacted. Of course, it's not really fair that EVs get away without paying for the highways that we use, so in the long run we certainly will/should be paying. I was just hoping to put it off a little longer.
