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.
