TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY E-TAX RENEWAL CAMPAIGN KICK-OFF DEMANDS EARLY MAIL-IN VOTING!!!

The fight to renew Kansas City's earnings tax is already underway as critics denounce pandemic campaign strategy.

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY EARNINGS TAX SUPPORTERS HOPE EARLY MAIL-IN BALLOTS EARN EASY VICTORY WHILST TAX FIGHTERS DENOUNCE TACTICS THAT EFFECTIVELY PURGED PREZ TRUMP FROM OFFICE!!!

To be fair, KCFD also capitalized on mail-in voting during the pandemic in order to win a landslide low turnout election victory at the outset of the plague

Take a look a the E-Tax campaign kick-off and notice the effort to push early mail-in ballots as a path to keeping the largest funding source in the Kansas City budget . . .

Even more interestingly, as infection rates and hospitalizations continue to decline in Kansas City, COVID-19 precautions are highlighted by E-Tax supporters.

Even more context . . .

Workers in Johnson County despise the KCMO earnings tax and this year the debate over work-at-home refunds amid COVID have sparked even greater controversy. Nevertheless, historically, Kansas City voters have repeatedly endorsed the E-tax time after time by margins of up to 50 points.  

Accordingly . . .

The online E-Tax campaign seems confident and offers a seemingly "institutional" tone as supporters push for an early win that follows in the path of the current Prez and divisive pandemic politics.

Take a look . . .

You decide . . .

They can demand all they want. People have the right to go to the ballot box and judge for themselves.

And yet they have done so repeatedly and the earnings tax has won over and over. Weird.

It's a tax on JoCo. Might as well keep it. With the way teleworking is going, it will shrink over time and probably rapidly.

on the shrinking of the tax of course.

Vote Yes on the Earnings Tax renewal, so we can keep spending tax money on entertainment districts, convention centers, convention hotels, parking garages for luxury condos and apartments, toy trains, stadiums and subsidize underperforming TIF's.

This is mostly a tax on the working poor of KC. The Johnson County workers aren't coming into KC anymore.

So why bother to vote you know it's going to pass regardless of what the people want. Mail in voting seems to be the liberal politicians way to insure their right of passage. Now that's voter suppression at best.

Bandit said...

I'm endorsing this tax because A- It no longer effects me and B- It's a further nail in the coffin of Kansas City which I have been cheering on since Q Ball decided to singlehandedly destroy it.

Businesses are leaving, closing or simply refusing to relocate there at an accelerated rate. There's no incentive. It's not business friendly. At the rate Kansas City is going they'd better hope on a $15 minimum wage because that's mostly what will be left there very soon.

Vote early and vote often!

P.S. I'm also endorsing Q Ball for a second term.

Stay in your trailer Bandit, we don't need your white welfare check.

How sad, you need emojis to highlight your pathetic words. Disgusting. Unproductive comments, stupid and should be deleted. I keep e-mailing TKC to ban you but he has not, he will lose more readers if he allows your stupidity to stay. You are an enemy of the people of Kansas City. Disgusting person who wants us dead. Be gone!

Would nice to see an accounting of what businesses have been exempted from the etax and the reasons for that.
Maybe the Star could do an article on that. Said no one ever.

If a structure on the local and national registers of historic buildings is demolished between now and the election, I will vote no. I know they are separate issues, but I'm angry.

The earnings tax is a slush fun for 12th and Oak to squander as they please.

If you think I'm kidding look how bad your snow removal, trash service and road repairs suck compared to say JoCo where no earnings tax is in place.

Gus said...

I think mail-in voting is a great idea if it accepts ballots from Clay, Cass, Jackson and Johnson counties in MO and Johnson and Wyandotte counties in KS. Of course KCMO probably has so much undiscovered talent in the city limits that it doesn't need any outside help.

Is Trump president again yet?

Oh great; mail in ballots.

More voter fraud for the Democrat Party.

Those outside of KC but work in KC do not have the privilege of voting NO to this tax.

Johnson County, Kansas should tax Kansas City residents for working in Overland Park and Leawood. At least the KC folks who work in Johnson County get to experience paved roads and civilization in OP and Leawood.

The earnings tax will not deter people from living or working in Kansas City because the city has so many positives going for it: low crime rate, great street repair, timely snow removal, a streetcar, and did I mention the low crime rate.

Only if all these positives were not present would the earnings tax act as a disincentive to live or work here.

I live in Raytown, work in Kansas City, MO, and am not wealthy. I am the middle class the Democrats pretend to be for. They tax me and I can't even vote on it.

^^^^4:41 -

Congress just used it as an excuse for days off. They love days off. They put in extras time lately and feel they deserve PTO. They work as little as possible. They were not scared, just lazy. McDonald Rump as I call him has ruined his political future - everyday the Jan 6th event is looked at as a 9/11 type attack. And he set the date, time, place, within walking distance of the Capital and told people he would "be there with them", which was a lie. Notice he did not pardon a single MAGA protester!

Is Trump's wife a former porn star? I see naked lesbian pictures of her on the net long before he ran for office and some said she was a call girl to service the rich men? Is it true? I see her naked today - I check and pictures still there.

ww..c'mon..the KC E-tax helps provide awesome places to visit..like the wonder, vibrant, always-packed, fun-filled 18th and Vine Jazz District!

The E-tax helps support the cabal tribe of baby eating politicians. it pays for their halloween costumes and the maintenance on the thousands of miles of tunnels under all the major USA cities. It costs alot to maintain 500,000 miles of tunnels and even more to feed 100,000 hungry kids kept in cages in the tunnels.

Maybe the E-tax can pay for the mental health the Q-anon people so badly need.

Biden is President tonight and tommorow!

Bandit said...

Please continue to pay their protection racket as they cut your services and find other ways to raise your taxes. I highly endorse this effort now as I did at 12:38. 遲巨

Shocking! DM☭CRATs rigging another election! said no one ever.

Prices are way, WAY up and inflation will kill off the middle class once and for all.

https://spectator.org/inflation-stimulus-middle-class/

The politicians in office are so, SO ignorant, so obtuse, so inexperienced and unable to think with any clarity and certainly they are cloistered, separated and left with only ideological tools to use in the coming insanity - and it will be fuckin insane.

We are led over cliffs by lemmings posing as "experts".

What a fuckin joke.

They were warned but chose not to listen as usual.

While you're all discussing the e-tax today, did you hear the big news about the QAnon and Proud Boys attack on the Capitol today? Yea, me neither.

They need to send those National Guard troops around the Capitol to South Chicago to protect all the men, women and children being killed there every day.

Or to the border... Illegal Immigrants Wearing Resident Asterisk "Biden* Please Let Us In" Shirts Walking Towards Border…

Completely spontaneous I'm sure.

After the illegal immigrants are in the border a few miles, they put on shirts saying, "Basement Joe Let Us In Even Though We Had COVID."

Yeah, that will encourage people to work in KC.

Typical Kansas City mentality. They want all the bells and whistles but want somebody else to pay for it.

Hello...this is a rich Johnson County professional here who used to be forced to pay this idiotic tax until I woke up and decided not to work downtown anymore. Now, the idiots in KCMO gov do not get 1% of my considerable income year after year. This tax is just a way for poor black neighborhoods to be subsidized by rich JoCo yokels who work for big firms downtown. Wake up and move out to JoCo to work. I have saved the equivalent of a new Cadillac in the past years I have not been forced to pay this tax.

I invested a lot of $$ in KCMO with a residence. For over 10 years I have seen little to no infrastructure improvement in our west side area. Curbs, streets, street medians, street lights should all have been replaced years ago.
At the same time I see the Council spend money on Urban projects in a disproportional amount which benefit only a few folks. I. E. Linwood Grocery, 18th and Vine, Jazz Museum, associated councils and spending for the so called oversight of these projects.
I will vote NO in the e-tax in the hope that the City will be forced to right size and stop wasteful spending.
