COURTHOUSE DEBATE BEFORE AMID JACKSON COUNTY PROPERTY TAX BILL TIME BOMB: POLITICS BEFORE IMPENDING LOCAL HOMEOWNER REBELLION!!!
Let's make this plain because a lot of local politicos are thinking about this in theoretical terms . . .
WHEN MANY JACKSON COUNTY RESIDENTS GET THEIR PROPERTY TAX BILL THAT THEY COULDN'T POSSIBLY PAY, THERE'S GOING TO BE AN OUTCRY KANSAS CITY HASN'T SEEN IN DECADES!!!
We're talking about forcing broke-ass people out of their homes, putting them on the street or in public housing at best . . . Turning homeowners into beggars.
It's not exaggeration to call this a time bomb because putting a great many home owners in a corner over sloppy taxes raised disproportionately will be one of the worst offenses committed against the populace in this town's history and a good enough reason to abandon faith in Democracy for people without anything more to lose.

KMBC: "Those tax bills are erroneous, and they're flawed. They're based on values that we think were not based on facts. They didn't do the work. They simply didn't do the work, and the taxpayer is going to suffer," said Stacey Johnson-Cosby, a Center School District representative to the Board of Equalization.
