Rex Sinquefield writes in Forbes: Boosted By Tax Cuts, Kansas Routs Missouri
Relevant passages . . .
"Reckless claims, proffered by high-tax, big government devotees, that Kansas’ 2012 tax reform measures have already failed based on recent reduced revenue reports, are not as thoughtful or well-informed nor are they reliable. To begin, forecasting month-by-month tax receipts is a distraction from the larger picture. When one looks at the data, over the long run, states with no income taxes are way ahead of the highest tax states across all relevant indicators.
"A more accurate early analysis of the results of Kansas’ new tax cuts is found in comparing how the state is currently faring versus its neighbor to the east, Missouri . . ."
Here are the stats Rex touts:
U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
- Unemployment rate in Kansas (low and falling) vs. Missouri (above national average and heading in the wrong direction).
- Private employment in Kansas, up 55 thousand since Governor Sam Brownback was elected.
- 2 out of every 3 new jobs in the KC Metro area are being created on the Kansas side.
That last not-so-fun fact speaks volumes about the local economy.
Accordingly . . .
KANSAS CITY PROPER REMAINS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BORDER WAR AND ON THE LOSING SIDE!!!
The only answer to this dilemma has been the hope that the Kansas economy will implode and faux truce agreements with nobody in particular as the status quo among KCMO politicos persists.
