SF Scheme Scuttled

by Paul Jacob

“The proposed tax was very popular. In San Francisco. It polled at nearly 75 percent in favor.
But it possessed a fatal flaw. And worse. The fatal flaw? The numbers didn’t add up. Organizers spent nearly half a million bucks developing and promoting and getting the petition signatures to place Proposition K on this November’s ballot. The notion? Tax Amazon sales within city limits to fund a guaranteed income scheme in the Golden City. But then they learned — after it qualified for the ballot — that it was an incoherent tax-and-spend mess.” (09/09/22)
