how can it be true that JoCo can have more government handouts than liberal KC?
Good question. The county is a fake that's why. The only county in the state of Kansas worth a shit economically has to be one of the most leaching, propped up subsidized suburban countys in the country.
Without all the subsidies and the ability to leach and poach off of kcmo, I doubt it would be thriving any more than eastern jax or the northland.
I honestly think that KCMO "handouts" have been generally necessary and been worthwhile to not only KC but the entire metro (power and light district, h&r block etc). Maybe they have used tifs a few times in the northland, but even those were just tif and the tifs are going to fund all the new roads up there, not the actual development themselves. This prairie fire projects is a freaking travesty. I'm telling you, if this were going on in the metro DC area, people would go to jail over all this public money going to private development in affluent areas. They don't mess around with that kind of stuff here.
