Tax Fighter Warning: Kansas City Federal Stimulus Shouldn't Fund Developer Schemes



Tragically, it seems the pandemic has been a money grab opportunity for local corporations whilst residents are more concerned with avoiding the plague and the impact on their everyday lives.

Here's the big picture and an important question that has been overlooked:

Should All Cities Automatically Get Federal Help?

Money line and worthwhile advice from local tax fighters:

"While such support may be necessary, it should not allow cities to escape the consequences of their own bad behavior. Kansas City and St. Louis are high tax cities that also have high per capita public debt. They divert an ever-growing amount of money to private developers to build things that in some cases are clearly not needed."

You decide . . .

One way forward. Throw down the corrupt developers, politicians and banksters. Convert unused offices, hotels, stadiums and apartments into homes.

Kind of puts things in perspective. KC developers are more than willing to raid medical funds and money for sick and out of work people.

They never really cared about Kansas City or it's people.

Think about it.

Should cities get federal help? ABSOLUTELY NOT especially sanctuary cities. Just remember that a lot of your federal money is being given to illegals. The American people and businesses need this money not the cities!

Those "illegals" probably pay more in taxes than you. And they contribute to the economy. People who constantly read and write blogs don't do anything productive.

Wrong.

They take way more from security and income. And also that "payment" drives down wages of Americans who were born here.

Their is not going enough money from the feds to bailout KC. Their day of reckoning is here. Vote NO on regressive fire safety sales tax. The firefighters should be ashamed of themselves of trying to increase taxes during this crisis.

Why does no one ever say this ... If businesses didn't hire illegal immigrants they wouldn't be here . Penalize the businesses who are too cheap to pay a living wage and take advantage of economic immigrants .

The Quinton Lucas solution to revenue shortfall is to pander to Josh Hawley; but neither Kansas City MO nor Quinton Lucas have anything to offer Hawley.
