Seattle’s job boom challenges GOP’s economic policies

City would benefit from less taxation, bureaucracy, waste

The notion that Seattle’s economic upturn is a result of its heavy taxation and liberal political climate is ludicrous. Danny Westneat’s premise is that because Seattle’s economy is improving, the fiscal ideology and political leadership must be good [“Seattle’s an inconvenient truth to GOP,” NWSunday, March 24].

The proper question that should be asked is this: How much better could Seattle’s economic fortune be with less taxation, bureaucracy and waste?

I would suggest that Seattle’s good fortune is in spite of these things, not because of them.

–Scott Santos, Issaquah
