KC Museum tax could be siphoned to other museums

From Wednesday's Buzz Column:

As if you weren’t taxed enough.

From the city that taxes you more and delivers you less, City Councilwoman Deb Hermann wants to pile on to the MIL Levy to its full compliment to fund other museums in town.

Let’s just remind our readership that a few on this list are Liberty Memorial and Union Station. You may remember that front-men for each of those entities promised that after the passage of specific support taxes for those causes, no additional tax revenues would be needed to support the facilities because a sacred trust was going to be establish to provide funding in perpetuity — read: forever.

Well “forever” apparently comes sooner here in Kansas City than it does in other parts of the world because now they’re back at the taxpayer’s door begging and whining for more.

Here’s some advice if this hits the ballot this August - fugghettaboutit!
This thing deserves the boot!
