Kansas City Opportunity Zones Explained



This might not be fun but it's important inasmuch as taxpayers will be footing the bill whether they understand it or not . . .

"Opportunity Zones are a little known part of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 designed to encourage development in some of the nation's most distressed neighborhoods. KCPT's Nick Haines lays out the top 10 things to know about the federal program that some hope will help revitalize the nation."

Take a look . . .

KCPT IS AN OPPORTUNITY ZONE IN KCMO

KCPT: Where JOCO residents come to make a career by lecturing KC residents how to govern and tax themselves.

Kliff Kuehl - President of KCPT, and JOCO resident
Nick Haines - KCPT host, and JOCO resident

A majority of the people associated with KCPT are not residents of KCMO. They are a foreign occupying force imposing their will upon KCMO.

Opportunity Zones are just another "economic development" tool which continue to be abused in the endless quest to expand private/public partnerships, where the public gets the debt and the private sector enjoy the profits.
TIFs, CIDs, and TDDs all fall into the same list.
And all are abused in KCMO.
And with the horrendous economic downturn from the virus, the chickens are coming home to roost.
KCMO begging from Jackson County, the county looking for bucks from Missouri, and everyone with their hands out to the feds.
And the less transparency and accountability, the better.
Just like always.
