Though to be expected (because it violates state law), a judge unfortunately ruled against Seattle's attempt to implement a wealth tax.
Liberals in Seattle deserve not only to pay the tax, but they also deserve the low economic growth that would result. They deserve the capital flight out of the city that would ensue, along with businesses already leaving town in anticipation of their $15 minimum wage.
In short, Seattle, like all large, liberal towns deserve what inevitably and ultimately happens to them. They deserve to become Detroit.
