Seattle Officials Repeal Tax That Upset Amazon
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/12/techn...mazon.html

Seattle officials scuttled a corporate tax on Tuesday that they had wholeheartedly endorsed just a month ago, delivering a win for the measure’s biggest opponent — Amazon — and offering a warning to cities bidding for the retailer’s second headquarters that the company would go to the limit to get its way.

The tax would have raised about $50 million a year to help the homeless and fund affordable housing projects. As Seattle has boomed over the last decade, in large part because of Amazon, which is based there, rents have soared and some residents have suffered. The city’s homeless population is the third largest in the country, after New York and Los Angeles.

Hmm, interesting. Aren't all these cities run by Demons?

Yes blood suckers. But the left eating their own is fun.

No forethought quickly followed by no backbone.

That would be a great slogan for the Democratic Party for the 2020 cycle.

Seattle and especially Portland have been homeless schitholes for a LOT more than a decade, closer to at least two.
