Gov debate: Supermajority for taxes

How will you vote on the initiative?

McKenna: We will go to the Supreme Court and I believe they will overturn the King County ruling the supermajority is unconstitutional. The voters have been clear on taxes. They did so because it provides a higher wall. But it's not insurmountable.

Inslee: Rob supported multiple tax increases while he was on the King County Council and they didn't require a supermajority. When we impose a two-thirds majority it goes against one-person, one-vote. Let democracy rule.

McKenna: He's clearly against a rule 64 percent of the voters approved.
