So I am watching the news today, and some barely-adult kid who founded the "Northwest Progressive Institute" is complaining about I-960, a bill that would make it a little harder to raise taxes and fees in Washington: it would require the legislature to pass fee increases (instead of bureaucrats doing it), it would require notification on hearings, more straightforward language about tax increases, and so on.

So this kid is complaining about it, and saying it would make it harder to raise taxes and to pass a budget. He said that these fee increases are simple revenue increases.

The odd thing is that he didn't actually give a single reason to vote against the initiative, he just repeated the pro-I-960 talking points!

I know, he thought those were actually points against I-960. I am just not sure why he thought that. slashdot.org
