Ah, Missouri… whatever will we do with you?
Unfortunately I don’t think they’re alone. I don’t trust my state’s legislature (or governor, for that matter) any more than I do Missouri. One of the problems with democracy is that no one is willing to take on long term challenges, because those in power are only around for a few years, so they just pander to financial supporters and voting constituents’ whims without considering the long term consequences. I have a rental property with a Missouri lease on it, so I do have some interest in what’s going on there, but at this point very little will convince me of politicians’ honesty.
Best of luck there in Missouri, especially with that brutal real estate market of yours,
PS here’s a Missouri Lease if anyone’s still investing there, which I hope they are!
