ROTFLMAF  They will just move out of Seattle. 

"Will the last person leaving SEATTLE Turn out the lights" 

Don't tell the State of California.

The Seattle City Council on Monday approved a pared-down version of the “head tax” on the metro area’s largest employers to fund efforts to battle homelessness despite public criticism from local businesses, including e-commerce giant Amazon.

Approved by a vote of 8-1 on the amended version, the measure will go into effect in January 2019 and tax companies that earn $20 million or more in annual sales 14 cents per employee hour, or $275 per employee annually. The tax is expected to raise roughly $50 million per year toward outreach efforts for the homeless, including affordable housing and emergency shelter.

Jeff Bezos should just declare he is moving Amazon out of Seattle. Then sit back and watch the leftist there implode. Liberals are so short thinkers.

They only need to look at Ca to see the end result of their policies. Have to admit though, as loony as the Bay Area is, they aren't this stooopid. :lol:

They learned they can count on the State to perform the "Stupid Pet Tricks" while they pretend and play victim as well.
Washington State has sooo much to learn about Marxist policy from Ca, but give them credit, they're still loading the gun for a game of Russian Roulette.
"Do we load all cylinders, or leave one blank?"  :lol:

You would think they learned something for Boeing around April of 1971, and that was only Boeing.

 CORPS. DO PAY TAXES.  Depending on size,,INVESTORS are given the PROFITS OR LOSS,,on SCHEDULE K.  They, will then pay on the profit/ loss on their, 1040 tax return.  When It is a small corp, the OWNER takes the PROFIT as W-2 PAYCHECK, with FICA & 30%  withholding, taken out.   This owner, then pays TAXES on his income, gross paycheck.  Of course , then CORP.  HAS NO INCOME & IT IS ZEROED  OUT.

CORP. INCOME IS JUST SWITCHED TO INVESTORS OR OWNER.   TAX IS PAID.

Well, if you look at how they are brought and what they are exposed to they are entitled, completely closed off from opposing opinions. Having to work hard to achieve is considered mean and competition in their world does not exist. We call them socialists and communists but in reality they don't know what any of that is. All they know is life is hard and they believe they should not have to deal with it.

A sad, but true commentary. Just look at any university, they're being bred to believe competition is unfair, that capitalism is inherently evil, and the very reason school no longer teaches our Founding Documents 3 years. Anyway, it was when I went to school, 8th grade, 10th and my Senior year, it was required.
I've heard mention from kids graduating that they only skimmed over it. Obviously, the left wants our kids as stupid and brainwashed as they are.
