Tax the rich and corporate profits. The Mayor and the Council have no trouble going down to Olympia and demanding money when it is about pet projects (replace viaduct with tunnel etc.). Besides supporting I1098, we need to go down to Olympia to demand a stable revenue base for all and that means taxing those who extract wealth from the labors of others: big business and the super rich. Close loop holes to big corporations.
This would allow us to EXPAND city services at a time when they are needed more than ever. To EXPAND city jobs when more and more people are out of work.
The bosses created this crisis, why should regular folk have to pay for it?
