I am relatively new to the state of Washington, but imagine my surprise when I read about Gov. Jay Inslee's plans for 2014:
-- Increase the highest minimum wage more than 18 percent?
-- Increase the state's gasoline tax to pay for more transportation funding, while two mega-projects are already flailing?
-- Increase education funding for illegal immigrants?
This is a gag, right?
