Next year’s gubernatorial election may be one of the rare times when the Democrats’ candidate doesn’t bother to take an anti-tax pledge he or she has no intention of keeping.

Put another way, given the example of the current Democratic-controlled Legislature, the next nominee for governor will have a lot of explaining to do should he or she pledge to veto a broadbased sales or income tax.
