SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY STAR ENDORSES HEALTH LEVY WITHOUT OFFERING ANY REPORTING ON THE SLOPPY TAX EFFORT!!!



Sadly, Kansas City Dead Tree Media is keeping their readers DANGEROUSLY MISINFORMED when it comes to an upcoming tax.

Take a look at this endorsement:

Renew KC's vital health levy for indigent care

The op/ed appeals to "compassionate" Kansas City voters but I'm not sure it's very kind to keep taxpayers and voters in the dark or make hobos dependent on a budget that's already "structurally unbalanced" and growing more shaky with every new tax.

What's worse . . .

THE KANSAS CITY STAR HAS OFFERED ALMOST ZERO REPORTING ON THE HEALTH LEVY AND YET STILL URGES READERS TO PASS ONE OF THE SLOPPIEST TAXES THIS TOWN HAS EVER SEEN!!!

Thankfully, some of the MOST AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS in our blog community have come with important facts for the electorate to consider.

First and foremost . . .

SHAME ON THE KANSAS CITY STAR FOR GLOSSING OVER THE SUBJECT OF PRICEY EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION FOR HEALTHCARE EXECUTIVES WORKING AT ORGANIZATIONS BENEFITING FROM THE TAX!!!

There's also very little mention of Truman Medical Centers and their HUGE CUT of this tax that seems tantamount of a Kansas City Hospital Takeover.

And when it comes to the structure of the tax . . . There hasn't been any mainstream media reporting of A DANGEROUS KANSAS CITY DOUBLE DOWN ON THIS PROPOSED TAX THAT COULD HAVE US PAYING TWICE IF OBAMACARE EVER COMES TO PASS!!!

Speaking of double down . . . The Obamacare concern is probably why Mayor Sly's own commission on municipal revenue suggested only 4 years of Health Care Levy renewal but instead architects of this tax are asking for 9 years worth of Kansas City support.

Finally . . . We've simply been watching this campaign evolve on the street level and this seems to be yet another rigged civic vote where no discussion of the City's finances or the sloppy nature of the tax is debated.

DEVELOPING . . .

If KCMO floated a tax increase for gold lined toilet paper for city leaders the Star would support it.

The KC Commie Star never met a tax or nanny-State idea it didn't like.

Vote No! I am already paying MedIcaid taxes to help the poor. That is how it works in the rest of the country.

The Star is part of this city's problem. They go along with whatever the elite wants. Vote No on Question 1 and vote no on the Star by not buying the paper.

They cannot "report" on an issue as they have no reporters left.
