Here we go again, the leftists in San Francisco are trying to get us to believe they have a solution for the homeless crisis on their streets.
This is clearly unconstitutional and will ultimately be heard by the United States Supreme Court.
It is in clear violation of the 5th Amendment “Do Process Clause,” of the U.S. Constitution and the 14th Amendment. (Source)

Not trying to be cruel here, but this problem was brought to the “City by the bay,” do to the failed leadership of Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris who can’t seem to be bothered.
- San Francisco’s Proposition C, which will tax the city’s biggest businesses to raise funds to combat homelessness, passed yesterday.
- The measure divided the tech industry, with Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff stepping up as most vocal proponent and detractors like Jack Dorsey, Michael Moritz and Mark Pincus speaking out against it.
- Proposition C will increase gross receipts taxes for companies with more than $50 million in annual revenue by an average of 0.5 percent, generating up to $300 million a year in new funds for shelters and mental health services.
- The passage of said measure will guarantee but one thing, business’ that find it more economically viable will be moving to new places perhaps leaving the state all together.
