The earnings taxes in Kansas City and St. Louis will continue to fund necessary city services because the voters overwhelmingly approved them in yesterday’s elections.
A reporter on one of the Kansas City television stations referred to the earnings tax as “controversial” this morning. You don’t get to say that and not sound like an idiot, not with the huge approval margins for the measure in this election.
It’s only controversial for old media because an anonymous someone(s) has deep enough pockets to make it so.
The sad thing? Kansas City and St. Louis will have to go through this exercise again in five years. Who profits? Just asking.
