Amazon has announced its list of 20 cities for a second headquarters, and both big cities in Missouri failed to make the cut.

St. Louis and Kansas City were among 238 cities making a bid to be the site of a second headquarters. The 20 finalists were announced Thursday.

The online retailer in September opened the search and promised to spend more than $5 billion on the site. The Seattle-based company expects it will bring up to 50,000 jobs. A final selection will be announced later this year.

Missouri officials also submitted a bid separate from the two cities that would have involved an innovation corridor between Kansas City and St. Louis rather than a single location in one of the state's major metropolitan areas.

Taxpayers should be thankful ...... corporate welfare is recklessly spent on wealthy corporations.

One has to have an income to pay taxes.
