A few weeks ago, I told you about the huge attacks that Seattle City Council plan for its businesses, Amazon, the city's largest employer, would be hardest. It now Amazon, but on additional five dollars per employee on top of the taxes they pay already. The new tax would supposedly solves the apples housing crisis, but it wouldn't now, as in other liberal, run cities homeless, camps, their everywhere and thanks to Seattle, massive overregulation, available housing cannot keep up with the man. Rents are astronomical. Now, whenever liberals create problems, do they fix their policies? No, they punish the productive and this new tax targeted, successful businesses which Seattle, liberals, assume or just rolling an extra dough and will roll over in pay any new tax.

Instead of five hundred dollars for employee, the City Council voted to only tax, big companies, two hundred and seventy five dollars per employee, but here's a warning for Jeff Beezus, the liberals who run your town or going to be back for the rest of it.
