SO - The buffoons governing the city of seattle are working very hard to raise the costs for everyone.


The Seattle City Council will vote Monday on a proposal that could lead to higher costs for people getting rides from Uber or Lyft.

At 2 p.m., the council will hear a resolution proposal to study a base rate fare of $2.40 — up from the current base rate fare of $1.35.

Supporters say it will will help drivers make a better wage in an increasingly expensive city that already has a $15 minimum wage for most other workers.

Driver Fasil Teeka supports raising the base fare, saying he works 12- or 15-hour days, seven days a week for a living wage.

“We make money, but we don’t have savings, it just pays our bills,” Teeka said. “Our cost of living, the rent, the gas price, everything else goes up, but the wage we are making has been the same.”

Liberals demonstrating their compassion by spending other people's money. When are people going to cast off this 'public protection racket' much like the majority of America cast off the mafia decades ago.
