MRL PAC Opposes Jackson County's Question 1: the $800 Million Research Tax

Missouri Right to Life State PAC has offered the following statement regarding their opposition to Question 1, an $800 million research tax on the ballot in Jackson County:

"Missouri Right to Life State PAC, like many other groups including the Citizens Association and Freedom, Inc., opposes this regressive $800 million tax.  It is not right to expect Jackson County families to spend their hard-earned money to subsidize some of Kansas City's wealthiest corporations without any strings attached.  Divided by every man, woman, and child in the County, that's nearly $1,200 for each person.  Meanwhile, these hospitals pay their CEOs millions of dollars a year, yet they want to pass the cost of expanding their business on to taxpayers.  This is not right."
