Kansas tax cuts vex Missouri

This border war between MO and KS is becoming insane. Who can have lower taxes? Nothing about which state will do more harm to its citizens.

Massive tax cuts in Kansas continue to drive conversation in the Missouri statehouse, with Republican lawmakers proposing three possible responses from the Show-Me State.

Each salvo in the ongoing border war comes with a hefty price tag, but supporters say the tab will pale in comparison to the cost of doing nothing and watching businesses relocate across the state line.

“We have to respond to what is happening in Kansas,” said Sen. Eric Schmitt, a Republican from Glendale. “Whether we like it or not, we are in a competition with other states.”

Yet Missouri already is unable to fully fund its public schools, has slashed money for higher education and can’t pay for needed repairs to highways and public buildings, said Sen. Paul LeVota, a Democrat from Independence.

“The truth is, people leave Missouri and move to Kansas because of their schools, not because of their taxes,” he said. “I don’t want to do something that is going to endanger the quality of life in Missouri.”

4. It's a very serious situation, however

it's a guilty fun to watch the drama. Which stupid is stupider? That sort of thing. The lunacy burns.

5. Yes, very serious. And the people will suffer.

Also please note the governor of Missouri is a Democrat and he's done not a thing to stop this madness.

6. I moved from Kansas to Missouri

and it had nothing to do with tax cuts or schools. I'm glad I got out before Brownhole took over, but I'm disgusted to see the teabag-brand Stupid is spreading east.
