Seattle’s "Amazon Tax"

Seattle might be more left-wing than Portland. Both Pacific Northwest cities have a huge homeless population.

The larger city just instituted a corporate head tax that applies to only Seattle's largest employers and that revenue is slated to pay for housing for the homeless. But why does Seattle have such a huge homeless problem, asks John Stossel? It has a cumbersome set of regulations that discourages the building of new homes and apartments.

Problem not solved.
