Our on-going alerts, DEMS! (Distinctly Embarrassing Moments for Seattle!), highlight the many ways one-party Democrat rule in Seattle has hurt the reputation of the city and our state. Read on!
Will the Democrats on Seattle’s City Council join Socialist City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant to impose an income tax on the citizens of Seattle?
Sawant is working with a leftist protest group called TrumpProofSeattle, whose goal is to use new taxes to maintain Seattle’s status as a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants.
“Trump has threatened to withhold federal funding to sanctuary cities,” TrumpProofSeattle says on their website. “This could raise $100 million/year in Seattle, set an example for other cities, and forge a path to tax justice in Washington State!”
Tax justice? What’s just about blatantly breaking federal laws? What’s just about imposing an income tax that 2/3rds of citizens oppose?
Despite the many times voters have said NO to an income tax, Seattle’s Democrats are among the only supporters of the tax. They will be strongly inclined to go along with their Socialist colleague. How embarrassing for Seattle!
