Seattle Tax Killing local Business so Let's Make it Statewide!

There is noth­ing more dan­ger­ous than lib­eral with power as busi­ness own­ers in Seat­tle are find­ing out

It’s amus­ing to watch Seat­tle tell us that this tax is designed to get peo­ple to drink less sug­ary drinks, that is, to change their eat­ing behav­ior, while at the same time say­ing that it won’t change people’s shop­ping behav­ior when it comes to shop­ping. How­ever that’s not what local busi­nesses are reporting:


Peter Lam, a local union rep­re­sen­ta­tive, said local busi­ness lead­ers’ fears are “being realized.”

With the tax four weeks old, our fears are being real­ized. We call on the city coun­cil to address the needs of the com­mu­nity and work­ers and address this tax,” he explained.

Daniel Kim, the gen­eral man­ager of the Korean Amer­i­can Gro­cers Asso­ci­a­tion — which has a heavy pres­ence in Seat­tle — said he is hope­ful Seat­tle lead­ers hear the con­cerns of local busi­ness owners.

Many cus­tomers are frus­trated and blam­ing the store own­ers. Our hope is that city lead­ers will lis­ten and under­stand how unfair this tax is,” he said.

Notice that the peo­ple in the video who are being hurt here are immi­grants try­ing to make it in Amer­ica, but what are their prob­lems next next to self right­eous lib­er­als feel­ing good about them­selves, but never fear folks the lib­er­als have your back, they have fig­ured out a way to make sure that peo­ple don’t cross city lines to avoid the tax.

Seat­tle is try­ing to dis­cour­age peo­ple from sip­ping on soda through a sug­ary drink tax, and now a bill is being re-​introduced to bring that tax statewide.

The tax adds nearly two cents to every ounce of a sug­ary drink sold. The bill was first read in Feb­ru­ary of last year and re-​introduced Monday.

Well I guess that’s one way to get the cash that indi­vid­u­als are sav­ing from the Trump tax cuts. Of course there is always Ama­zon.

FYI This is how you get more Trump.

There is nothing more dangerous than liberal with power as business owners in Seattle are finding out

It’s amusing to watch Seattle tell us that this tax is designed to get people to drink less sugary drinks, that is, to change their eating behavior, while at the same time saying that it won’t change people’s shopping behavior when it comes to shopping. However that’s not what local businesses are reporting:


Peter Lam, a local union representative, said local business leaders’ fears are “being realized.”

“With the tax four weeks old, our fears are being realized. We call on the city council to address the needs of the community and workers and address this tax,” he explained.

Daniel Kim, the general manager of the Korean American Grocers Association — which has a heavy presence in Seattle — said he is hopeful Seattle leaders hear the concerns of local business owners.

“Many customers are frustrated and blaming the store owners. Our hope is that city leaders will listen and understand how unfair this tax is,” he said.

Notice that the people in the video who are being hurt here are immigrants trying to make it in America, but what are their problems next next to self righteous liberals feeling good about themselves, but never fear folks the liberals have your back, they have figured out a way to make sure that people don’t cross city lines to avoid the tax.

Seattle is trying to discourage people from sipping on soda through a sugary drink tax, and now a bill is being re-introduced to bring that tax statewide.

The tax adds nearly two cents to every ounce of a sugary drink sold. The bill was first read in February of last year and re-introduced Monday.

Well I guess that’s one way to get the cash that individuals are saving from the Trump tax cuts. Of course there is always Amazon.
