Two days ago, the Seattle Politburo Voted 9-0 for a scaled-down version of a head tax ($275 per head, as opposed to the original $500).
Business owners asked: How is that a compromise?
And it’s not just the Fat Cat/One Percenters who are upset by this decision: A KIRO 7 poll shows a clear majority are opposed to this venture.
And still the Politburo is shocked & dismayed over all this.
The good news is, that six of the nine city council members are up for re-election.
In the meantime, national news outlets have picked up the story, like Matt Vespa’s Facepalm.
