Seattle Head Tax a Destructive Idea
Another day, one more government outrage. The social Do-Gooders in Seattle approves business tax for homelessness. You can hear the cries for social justice all the way from the heart of the grunge ghetto.
"The Seattle City Council has approved a tax on large businesses such as Amazon and Starbucks to fight homelessness.
The council on Monday unanimously backed a compromise tax plan that will charge large businesses about $275 per full-time worker a year. It's lower than the $500-per-worker tax initially proposed.
The tax would begin in 2019 and raise about $48 million a year to pay for affordable housing and homeless services."
