HOSPITAL TAXES KILLING KANSAS CITY!!!
Here's something to consider as the JACKSON COUNTY HEALTH RESEARCH TAX is soon to be considered by a largely distracted and disappearing voting public . . .
NPR: "A new study shows that the prices private insurers pay to hospitals vary widely. Not only that, they're much higher than what Medicare pays — especially in Kansas City."
Translation . . . Taxes are making medical care beyond reach for most broke-ass Kansas City residents and the solution championed by politicos is to raise prices even higher with the help from one of Kansas City's richest families holding Children's Mercy hostage to a big donation.
