TKC TRENDSPOTTING: CONSERVATIVE AND URBAN CORE GROUPS UNITE AGAINST JACKSON COUNTY TRANSLATIONAL TAX!!!
An interesting note at the end the work week . . . It seems that the local fight against higher taxes has created strange bedfellows in the Kansas City metro area.
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS MISSIVE FROM A LOCAL CONSERVATIVE GROUP TOUTING SOLIDARITY WITH FREEDOM, INC TAX OPPOSITION!!!
Here is the statement:
CITIZENS FOR RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT has at least two other groups in it's corner fighting the unfair, ill conceived Medical Research TAX,TAX!
The League of Women Voters and Freedom, Inc. have both stepped up to fight what is a big, unjust drain on the finances of the Jackson County voters. It is not clear just exactly what this TAX, TAX will cure?
CFRG does not have the finances to fund a mailer every other day or show some poor baby on TV, which by the way many people find rude and insensitive. We must rely on the general public, the regular people to stop this madness. Could this be a ploy to get the taxpayers to fund STEM-CELL RESEARCH?? PERHAPS EVEN EMBRYONIC STEM-CELL???
There are way too many unanswered questions about this TAX, TAX. GET ON BOARD AND VOTE NO ON QUESTION #1, November 5th. No one is against meaningful medical research, this project is wrongfully funded.
Even better and keeping with the anti-tax collabo theme, this Conservative group will be at The Kansas City Blues and Jazz fest this weekend collecting petition signitures against the new single-terminal airport folly.
