Do You Support The City Council Proposal To Tax Big Business?

Do You Support The City Council Proposal To Tax Big Business?

Christine…
“I think big businesses in Seattle should be paying more taxes than they are because they are partly responsible for the gentrification of our neighborhoods where people can’t afford to live in communities they’ve lived in forever. They are bringing in a lot of high paying jobs that don’t necessarily help people who have lived in Seattle for a long time. So, I think they should be taxed more to help the communities they are benefitting from.”

Terrence Goodwin…
“I believe that big businesses should pay taxes due to the fact that they make a whole bunch of revenue and they have to give back just like everyone else does.”

Darryl…
“I do believe that taxes should be raised on big businesses, considering that they make big bucks.  A lot of the lower income businesses do not have that substantial rate of income to bring more revenue, so if we put more taxes on the big businesses some of that revenue can go towards smaller businesses.”

Mohammed…
“Taxes are a way of life. It is your responsibility to as a part of this country to give your fair share and that should include big businesses.”

Sean…
“Are taxes mandatory? If so, all should contribute their share including business and religion.  A community effort is necessary so everyone should do their part. Everyone.”

D…
“I think if your in this country you should your part to contribute to the well being of this nation and its citizens.”
