    Hallelujah!

    It's about time these alt-lefties get their asinine policies knocked down.

    The tax never had a chance because local governments are allowed to levy income taxes in Washington. What were they thinking?

    liberals won't tax their own rich, that is where they make the i fones.

    the Presidents new tax plan makes the rich liberals pay higher taxes.

    Will the liberal Trump pay his share of the higher taxes for a change? Nah...I doubt it.

    It's hard to understand Seattle trying to enforce a law that they had to know was illegal to begin with.
    Leftist hubris at work again. It's not the town I knew growing up.

    Moving the goal post are we? I pay my fair share, my question is about Trump, the fool that declared bankruptcy 4 times leaving taxpayers holding the bag, then proceeded to claim losses on personal income so that he didn't have to pay taxes for years. So get out with that foolish statement.

    Could this mean anything for federal taxes in the near future?

    So are you the arbitrator who determines "fair share" when it comes to how much people can keep of their own money?

    LoL they're trying to take money from rich liberals and they're fighting back against their own ideology.

    Love it.

    the President is one of the good liberals who betrayed his own kin to save the peasants.

    he should not be taxed.

    You do? How do I know you pay your fair share? Maybe you don't, but want people to believe you do.

    I'd be satisfied if he'd just define what "fair share" is.....

    Was this the white privilege tax that was initiated by the city's gay pedophile mayor?

    “In order to uphold its income tax, the city would have to convince a court that individual income is not protected by the constitution,” he said.

    They had the burden of truth.
