So Republican Rep. Morgan Irwin, R-Enumclaw, does not believe that the states should be laboratories where new laws are tried out (“Democrats seek automatic and day-of voter registration,” The Herald, Feb. 2o).
Perhaps he should ask Republican former governor of Kansas Sam Brownback and the Republican state legislators in Kansas how they feel about their grand experiment to energize the economy of Kansas by slashing taxes using the discredited Laffer Curve.
Like Frankenstein’s monster, their experiment caused havoc, but in this case not by terrorizing a few villagers but instead by destroying an entire state’s economy.
I see no harm in expanding access to voting in our state. And if Republican policies were actually worth voting for, neither should Republicans.
