TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN FOR MORE TAXES!!!



Despite recent encouraging gains in the job market, there remains a great deal of uncertainty regarding the economy . . .

Moreover, closer to home Kansas City taxpayer have suffered one tax break after the next thanks to the current administration.

Accordingly . . .

CHECK OUT THE LATEST TAX ASK FROM KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY!!!

We're offering a FIRST LOOK PEEK at the junk mail that's currently papering this town.



Critics of the mayor offered a fast and furious reaction to the document:

"Mayor Sly James has sent out a mailer asking you to vote YES on Question #1 on the April 3rd ballot. This will allow City Hall to raise another 1% on all retail sales for the next twenty years (approximately $1,400,000,000)! This tax should have been replaced by the $800,000,000 GO bond."

Sadly, it did not and the rate of local taxes continues to grow.



The arguments for this tax increase follow similar vague language and empty promises with only THE DESPERATELY NEEDED repair of the Buck O'Neil Bridge pushed as a specific proposal.

Meanwhile, it has been about a year and locals are still waiting on construction of the doggie shelter that was promised but still not delivered.

And so . . .



IS THIS TAX INCREASE DOUBLE DOWN FAIR TO KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS OR DOES IT REPRESENT BAD PLANNING FROM CITY HALL???



You decide . . .

It's not a bad plan, it's the plan they had all along. The plan that involves squeezing every last dime out of taxpayers.

The same old tune from Progressive/Democrap cities, taxes go up forever, and the local Deep State benefits from your hard work, while the taxes you already committed to are wasted on bullshit.

And the water bill keeps skyrocketing upward

Doesn't this represent a reduction from 50% to 35% in the amount of PIAC funds that are available for neighborhood projects? PIAC funds are insufficient to pay for these projects now and this will mean that more neighborhood priorities will be ignored. It seems like this reduction should be disclosed and explained to constituents.

So, now it will be a combined 2.2 billion dollar tax hike that goes where? If it isn’t written down what we are voting for he can spend it on whatever he wants. He truly hates retired people and the poor because they can’t afford these taxes and the water bills now.

This reminds me of the never-ending controversy about the 1% earnings tax. And I do understand the point that people who don't like in KCMO still pay it even if they work there; and that's a sore subject for some.

But think of it from this perspective..

1% flat tax. More fair to everybody than a "progressive tax". Minimal tax burden for any one person.
It's never been raised since its inception.
High-income earners still pay more. 1% of a high income is more than 1% of a low income.

It does not require people to go to "tax preparation software" or pay to have a "tax professional" to figure out for you.
It's never required to you mail in several sheets of paperwork in order to "file your taxes".

In that, it's not a bad "model" of taxation; sounds easier than what the IRS wants you to go thru each April 15.

NO !!!!! Absolutely not.

KCMO is a financial black hole. I can’t believe anyone would fall for more taxation when the city’s in the shape that it’s in. Until old promises are made good, don’t vote for another dime of taxation.

Vote NO! Don't give this jerk anymore money until he shows K.C. progress with the other tax dollars we pay!

What happened to the 800M for the go bond?

James is a crook!

HELL YES VOTE NO!

But don't be surprised if it doesn't make any difference, don't forget who "counts" the votes!
Remember that there was a 70+% "yes" vote reported on the KCI destruction question!
