Behind Seattle’s Amazon Tax: Seething
Tensions, Livid Neighbors, and Rising Rents

Bloomberg News, by Karen Weise

Original Article

It was, as the local public radio station said, the day “Seattle Nice” died. On May 2, the residents of Seattle were hit with a one-two punch. For months, the city council had been debating a new tax on large employers to raise $75 million for new affordable housing and services for the homeless, whose growing population had burst out of shelters and into tents around the city. (Snip) Homeowners shouted down the council members and each other—decrying how growth and homeless encampments were encroaching into neighborhoods. Some opposed the tax, shivering at the thought of risking jobs at the

Perhaps lunacy has reached its limits in Seattle.

One point the author made in passing is that a part of the problem is the "opioid crisis and. the state’s meager mental health resources." Seattle is not the only place in the state that is being affected by this "enlightened" state´s stingy support of mental resources. In one case, two counties shared a single tiny crisis response office, and then they closed it because one particular politician thought a local hospital could handle matters more efficiently and bullied others to go along. That hospital has failed miserably, and the two counties are paying a high price for it.&

Provide the tools, supervision and materials, and let the homeless build their own homes. Maybe they would take pride of ownership and not destroy their homes, like most welfare recipients do to their government-furnished homes. They would learn skills, enabling them to get jobs and not be parasites on taxpayers.

Either that or give them a section of land for their tent city.

OP, You´d like to think so but, please look to Detroit and other shining examples. Those folks are so stuck in their ways, I have very little faith in things changing.

This aint a black, white, brown or yellow issue. It´s a mindset. Some have just swallowed whole the notion that more taxes and government will solve their problems. CONTRARY to ALL EVIDENCE.

FTA:"Normally, higher prices would induce more construction, but zoning laws prevent that," Glenn Kelman, CEO of Redfin Corp. wrote in a blog post on Tuesday.

His blog post was more informative than the Bloomberg article. I don´t agree with everything he wrote in that post but do agree that zoning regs are the big issue and it isn´t being addressed.

What you subsidize, you get more of. What you tax, you get less of. Thus, in the future fewer businesses will be supporting more homeless.

The homeless and random murders -
Two substantial problems in the USA today that are directly driven by the lack of enough, or in some cases, any, long term mental hospitals. There is a certain percentage of the population that are not mentally able to function in a free society. They will self medicate with alcohol and illegal, harmful drugs and a certain portion of them will get a knife or a gun and harm others.

The leftist idiots who closed down the previously existing state and local mental hospitals decades ago, did it (as usual) because they thought that they were smarter and "better" than previous generations. And, as usual, they were wrong - leftist are ALWAYS wrong.

Those millions need to be used to fund long term mental hospitals for the insane folks who can no longer be permitted to live under bridges and in camps along the margin of the cities.

Leftists are cruel fools. Bring back the "mental institutions". It will take money, but it is far more humane and better for society than not doing it.

Local builders were making affordable, low-cost housing back in 2014 and before. But in 2015, the same council passed a series of requirements that demanded the apartments be bigger, cutting in half the number of units that could be built per building, really. And of course, this increased the cost per unit to the renters.
Now, the council wants to pull the money to fix that from successful businesses under its jurisdiction.
In other words, let´s fund further incompetence, because you KNOW they won´t figure out how to best use the funds they gain from this tax.

Let Amazon stop building and/or get out of Seattle altogether, followed by its buddy Starbucks. The overwhelming vote by the city government to implement the tax is mind-boggling. It will never work, and it has not worked in the past; but these liberals refuse to see it. I don´t live anywhere near Washington state, but after reading Amazon´s statement on the city´s finances, it looks like they have misused the taxpayers´ money without much accountability, and now want to milk them for more in order to patch a problem of their own making. Hey, you want socialism? You got socialism.

I think it´s a good idea. It will make the street people flock to Seattle to take advantage of the great benefits and clear them off the streets of other cities. It will become "Bum Town USA" and plague the citizenry for their Liberalism, panhandling all over their business district and tonier neighborhoods, and ignite the exodus of large businesses, not that it will ever make them vote for conservative leadership.

I live in Shoreline, immediately north of Seattle, our southern border is their northern border. I grew up in the Ballard area, graduated from Ballard High School. Ballard does not need to be ´gentrified´. It WAS solidly middle-class with homes built early in the 20th century. Now those homes are being torn down and being replaced by huge 10-12 or more story condos and apartment houses. My husband´s family home still stands but is surrounded on both sides with huge apartment buildings. The district is now mostly hipsters, millennials, drug addicts and bums. (all with dogs)
The city council is probably the most radical, left-wing council in the country. They keep finding new ways to raise taxes. Not only this ´head-tax´ but they´re trying to put an income tax on Seattle residents. The mayor announced yesterday she wants to put tolls on streets in downtown. It´s never ending. There are taxes on sodas, bags, special taxes on ammo and guns. Apartment owners have to rent to the first person who applies, they can´t even do background check. Employers have a set of rules on how they make up work schedules. You absolutely cannot believe the insanity that´s going on in the city. And yet the citizens keep voting for these clowns. Yesterday, Albertson´s announced the closing of two of their grocery stores. Amazon has already raised Prime from $99 a year to $119. People don´t believe you when you tell them that the company isn´t going to pay any taxes, they will just raise the price on whatever it is they sell. The people end up paying the tax.

Re#15
Wholeheartedly agree.

"Corporations dont pay taxes, people do," makes a great slogan/bumper sticker, but fails to explain why. "We" the people have failed to adequately explain simple business theories to the lofows. I sent a letter to the RNC chairman several years ago pleading with him to start explaining these issues in the media. Im firmly convinced that if everyone actually understood how businesses operate, democrats would never win elections outside of Berkley.

ATLANTA — Perri Chandler got dressed up to celebrate Stacey Abrams’s success in Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial primary Tuesday by donning a black T-shirt that read “Elect Black Women.” It was a defiant statement at a time when liberals are having a heated internal debate about whether a focus on “identity politics” is driving some white voters to support Donald Trump and candidates who mirror his style and policies. Chandler is not having it. “People who complain about identity politics don’t love their identity as much as black women love theirs,” says the 35-year-old Atlanta resident who works as a diversity

New Jersey voters´ approval of Sen.

The poll said 28 percent of registered voters supported two-term Democrat Menendez while 24 percent backed Republican Bob Hugin. An additional 46 percent were undecided.

Was it a wolf, some type of hybrid, or a creature that hasn´t been seen in Montana since the Ice Age? On May 16 a lone wolf-like animal was shot and killed on a ranch outside Denton, Mont. With long grayish fur, a large head and an extended snout, the animal shared many of the same characteristics as a wolf; but its ears were too large, it´s legs and body too short, its fur uncharacteristic of that common to a wolf.

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

Seattle levied an annual tax of about $50 million on big companies last week to help solve the city´s homeless problem. The tax was watered down from the original proposal but it was controversial and pitted the city against its most powerful corporate resident, Amazon.com Inc. Now the action moves to Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. San Francisco, Mountain View, Cupertino and East Palo Alto are all considering similar taxes on large local employers (read: tech companies) to offset growing inequality and overcrowding they blame on the industry that turned them into boomtowns.

Democrats and their media allies are again shouting “constitutional crisis,” this time claiming President Trump has waded too far into the Russia investigation. The howls are a diversion from the actual crisis: the Justice Department’s unprecedented contempt for duly elected representatives, and the lasting harm it is doing to law enforcement and to the department’s relationship with Congress. The conceit of those claiming Mr. Trump has crossed some line in ordering the Justice Department to comply with oversight is that “investigators” are beyond question.
