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 . . .
