POLL: Do you support a high-earners income tax in Seattle?

City leaders are considering an income tax on Seattle's wealthy. Is the proposal for a new 1.5% tax on income in excess of $250,000 a fair idea? Or would it have a chilling effect on the city's booming economy? Supporters say it's a move towards "tax justice;" opponents question its legality. We debate whether a high-earners income tax is a progressive or problematic idea for Seattle.
