7am hour -- producer Phil Vandervort in for John Carlson -- GUEST: Legislative wrap up/rewind: St. Rep. Peter Abbarno (R-Centralia), the ironic and pathetic justification WA Democrats give for passing a capital gains tax, the legal questions surrounding the constitutionality of the Democrats' capital gains tax, the ability of AG Bob Ferguson to defend the capital gains tax after he failed to defend $30 car tabs, why the Dems two bills--Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) and Cap and Trade--will make cost of living much more expensive for WA families, an aspiring high school cheerleader's free speech case goes to the US Supreme Court this week, the cheerleader's social media post after being cut from the varsity squad could become a landmark decision, the Supreme Court decision--expected in June--could alter a precedent on schools punishing students that dates back to 1969, no arrests in two high profile Seattle shootings in the last week, imagine if Republicans in the US House passed a bill giving statehood to a reliably Republican voting jurisdiction and how Democrats would react if they did that.
