Supporters of a Seattle tax hike on large businesses chanted “we’ll be back for more” after its passage on Monday.
The Seattle City Council unanimously approved the so-called “head tax,” which will charge large businesses like Amazon and Starbucks $275 per full-time worker each year. It will raise $48 million to pay for services combating the city’s homelessness problem.
In a video flagged by Americans for Tax Reform, advocates holding signs with slogans like “Reject Capitalism’s Race to the Bottom” shouted for further taxes on major companies.
The shouters looked like a central casting call for leftist-looking losers. They were mostly unhappy looking college-aged girls with a sprinkling of old confirmed bachelorette cat women. These are the useful idiots in Seattle.
