Doing the math on King Co.’s $1.5 billion, 10 year tax hike for Metro bus service

John Carlson presses King County councilman, Joe McDermott, on his support for Prop 1—the 10 year plan to raise King County car tab and sales taxes by $1.5 billion—to maintain bus service and pay for some road maintenance.
