STL POST-DISPATCH TAKES APART LEE'S SUMMIT POLITICO SEN. WILL KRAUS FOR CORPORATE WELFARE & SALES TAX SPIKE!!!
STL Post-Dispatch offers a column more courageous than anything in Kansas City dead tree media. Take a look: "In a ridiculous attempt to mimic Kansas (which bankrupted its budget last year), and to do the bidding of anti-tax advocate Rex Sinquefield (who donates more money to Missouri Republicans than anybody else), the Senate passed SB 26, sponsored by Sen. Will Kraus, R-Lee’s Summit. Over five years, it would starve the Missouri budget of almost $1 billion.
It get worse. Mr. Kraus’ bill cuts mostly corporate taxes, a welfare program for companies that already are among the lowest-taxed in the nation. It also raises the state sales tax, which would most affect poor people."
