https://conservativetribune.com/democrats-liberal-exemption/ Seattle’s leftists lawmakers approved an ordinance last year that imposed a tax on all sweetened beverages, save of course for the lattes consumed by the city’s highfalutin, upper-class elites. The new tax, which went into effect Jan. 1, specifically added a tax on “sweetened beverages, syrups and concentrates” except for those “that list milk as their first ingredient,” according to The Seattle Times. This means the fancy lattes enjoyed by Seattle’s Starbucks-sipping liberals get a pass, despite the fact that some of these lattes contain up to 68 grams of sugar. “Where and when is a sweetened beverage not a taxable sweetened beverage? In Seattle, when the drink is a Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks — 42 grams of sugar in a Venti, the largest size. Or a Caramel Brulée Latte with whipped cream — 68 grams of sugar in a Venti,” the Times explained. ----------------------------------- It figures the crazed lefty elites would exclude most of their purchases of sugary drinks.
