Use Tax, Not Sales Tax


As I’m sitting with my Mom talking about the upcoming vote she says I’ll never go
to a game why do I have to pay the tax? I said I don’t know ma why don’t they just
tax the people who are going to use the new facility or Arrowhead.
IT”S CALLED A USE TAX!
Anyone that uses the facility would pay an extra tax to fund the new construction
of improvements. It really isn’t fair to tax the residents of Jackson County when
most of us won’t go to a game. People who can afford or who prefer to attend
these events should burden the cost.
Johnson, Clay, Platte, Wyandotte, Cass and many other county residents attend
these sporting events but don’t have to pay the tax.
IF YOU WANT TO WATCH THEM PLAY YOU SHOULD PAY!
If you buy a hotdog at the game for $5.00 just make it $5.50 and give an extra .50
to the team. $70 to park. Make it $77 and give that 10% to the team. If you want
to go you should pay and all that don’t want to go shouldn’t have to.
Opponents are going to respond with I don’t have kids but have to pay for the
local school district if I own property. Who wants to compare a kids education
with attending a baseball of football
