Still fucked up and to hear them bitch at this new tax is laughable. The tax loopholes need to be closed, true, but nothing wrong with finding new ways to tax them.

 

Well the "Head Tax" applies to any business doing 20 million or more in revenue, Amazon's last quarter was 1.3 billion, so there are a lot more firms in Seattle subject to the tax.

 

Microsoft comes out smelling like a rose because their headquarters are in Redmond across the lake.

 

 

The city of Seattle added a tax to guns and ammunition 2 years ago and ran all the guns stores out of the city and into the suburbs. Seattle has an insatiable appetite for other people's money.

Not in the constitution.  Should be illegal right?

 

C'mon rito, you know better.

 

All laws have to have constitutional authority.

 

For example, the right to murder or not is not in the constitution. It's in the penal code. States have the authority to enact penal codes based upon their constitutional authority to legislate within their state.
