The optout-position


The Facebook group "Washington Tax Payers OPT OUT of Rob McKenna's lawsuit", formed in opposition to Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna's joining in a lawsuit over the new federal health care law, is roaring ahead. For a one-state group (its title probably provides some discouragement for non-residents to participate, though doubtless some do) it has grown past - to just shy of 19,000 so far, in a few days.

It's a busy group too, as you can see on Facebook.

This is the tightest political walk McKenna has had since running for state office. The demand conflict between base and larger electorate are increasingly severe.
