E-tax abolishers lie about city lying about how money is spent
So here’s what we know about the campaign to eliminate the earnings tax in Kansas City, Missouri: It’s dishonest.
On Thursday, the e-tax abolishers pretended to catch the city in a lie. Like a detective raising a suspect’s handcuffed wrist in the air, the campaign says the city was recently forced to admit that the entire $200 million collected by the tax does not go to police and firefighters. Of course, city officials never made such a claim.
