What is it with NAZI and raised fists? Only to get their ass beaten back down. :biggrin:

After the massive public relations buildup by Kshama Sawant and other socialists to pass their employee head tax boondoggle, just weeks later the Seattle city council has now pledged to repeal it. Late Monday, the city council President Bruce Harrell —with Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan— said in a statement that they would end the tax.

The tax was said to “combat rising homelessness” as housing prices have skyrocketed in the city of Seattle.

“We heard you,” Durkan said in a statement. “This week, the City Council is moving forward with the consideration of legislation to repeal the current tax on large businesses to address the homelessness crisis.”

The Seattle Chamber of Commerce in a study found that the tax would have cost the city almost 15,000 jobs and billions in economic output. The pro tax members of the council expected the head tax to raise $47 million in revenue.



“It was my sound belief that a compromise on this policy had been reached with business, and as an elected official representing all of Seattle, I am deeply disappointed that certain members of the business community did not engage in good faith with the City of Seattle.”

Kshama Sawant, an avowed socialist agitator, said the about-face by the council and the mayor was a “backroom betrayal.”

Kash Sawant is Definitely a Naxalite, an Indian Marxist in the image of Stalin.
Is Seattle so far left, that they no longer question communists?
