What's not mentioned . . .
KANSAS CITY'S BUDGET AND CREDIT RATING "STABILITY" COMES BY WAY OF QUADRUPLE TAX INCREASES FROM MAYOR SLY'S REGIME!!!
Mayor Sly has presided over tax increases for
- The E-Tax
- The Money Pit Zoo
- The Toy Train
- "Infrastructure" Repair that nobody has seen yet.
Two more things . . . Let's not forget that Kansas City's sales tax rate is spiking over 10% and is one of the most expensive in the Midwest.
Best of all . . .
KANSAS CITY INSIDERS AND KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS WANT TO REMIND US THAT THE CURRENT BUDGET HAS BEEN NOTED AS "STRUCTURALLY UNBALANCED" BY THE CITY MANAGER AND THIS FACT IS BURIED OR SIMPLY DELETED BY SYCOPHANT DEAD TREE MEDIA CORPORATE HACKS!!!
Meanwhile, even the most ardent supporters of the current administration must acknowledge that Sly James is Kansas City's "Tax and Spend" Mayor. In political circles, the local elite marvel at Mayor Sly's ability to keep winning tax increases with his smile.
There is no definite answer if Kansas City can spend and borrow our way to prosperity but there's also no denying the fact that there is a very real cost for Mayor Sly's charisma.
