Edwarsdville KS Pollys Gives Corporate Welfare To Apartment Building Project Going Nowhere

et another story about area politicians giving tax breaks to wealthy real estate developers while at the same time decrying budget shortfalls- cutting services yet raising people's taxes.

This particular folly is in Edwardsville- where "not one spade of dirt" has been turned on an apartment building project that town's pollys approved corporate welfare ("tax abatements") for since at least 2008- according to the BONNER SPRINGS (KS) CHIEFTAIN.

On top of all that- Edwardsville spent several hundreds of thousands of dollars on improvements to public infrastructure for the planned apartment complex.

If the so-called "Tea Party" really wants to make a hit with American citizens- propose and implement a STOP to ANY and ALL forms of corporate welfare in these UCSA (United Corporate States of America)!
