Welcome to the next step in Washington State, City council unanimously passes Seattle income tax resolution, that is a big mistake if the people of Washington State let this happen, as you know this state is money hungry greedy just like California, Georgia, New York, and so on.
I lived in Ohio for sixteen years before moving back to Washington State, and while there, that state had STATE Income and CITY Income Taxes, and all the other taxes, is that what you want here, just think about it before you say YES, city income tax in Ohio went like this, IF YOU LIVED in One City and worked in another you PAID Taxes in BOTH, NOW is that what you want here, that is what is going to happen if Seattle gets their tax, you won’t have to live there, you work there (so pay up), to be taxed right out of your homes and jobs, that is what is happening right here in this state right now, the poor and the unemployed are put out on the streets to live.
We have a Government that loves to spend as if there is no tomorrow, they don’t care who they hurt, all they care is tax until it hurts, and then tax some more, they talk about affordable housing, where, maybe if you are on a list, but that list is full, there is no more money to help pay to add more people on it.
It is time to tell this state it is run by the people’s vote, get that, PEOPLE’S VOTE, not what our Governor and his YES people want, how many tax proposals you the people of Washington State voted on, they seem to think that they are the people down there in Olympia, look what happen in ST3 did your vote count or was it Seattle’s (tax & spend) vote that counted, not yours, TELL these Cities State and Counties that this is yours not theirs to do what ever they want with out the people’s approval.
This is the problem here and all states, they don’t care what the people want, they are going to do what ever they want, look around and you will see that they passed laws so they don’t have to go to the people to get what they want, and when a vote is put before the people it should be 75% percent, not 51% percent to be passed.
