TKC TUESDAY QUESTION: SHOULD JACKSON COUNTY VOTERS RENEW COMBAT TAX???
Caveat to start discussion of this question . . . THERE IS NO ORGANIZED OPPOSITION CAMPAIGN.
A very smart local power broker once reminded our blog community that Kansas City politicos and their rip-off consultants often falsely claim overwhelming support for their schemes and candidates when there's NOBODY opposing their efforts.
Example . . . We can talk debate the E-tax but there were only less than a half dozen homemade yard signs opposing the effort. Everybody else was promised their cut and voted accordingly.
And now . . .
COMBAT TAX renewal has the support of local law enforcement and just about every community group in KCMO. But just like anonymous comments, our secret ballot offers protection for those unwilling to tow the party line.
The question . . .
SHOULD JACKSON COUNTY VOTERS SUPPORT THE COMBAT TAX DESPITE THE CURRENT 10-YEAR-HIGH CRIME SPIKE???
More to the point . . .
What's worse is that a great many groups funded by the COMBAT TAX are working to support anti-gun efforts. So local taxpayers who might disagree with the gun-grabber agenda are forced to provide funding in the name of public safety.
As always, you decide . . .
