SHOW-ME MISSOURI LOSING BOEING BID!!!
Take a look at Missouri politicos and their misplaced priorities resulting in an embarrassing passover from a big company . . .
WaPo: Boeing machinists OK contract tied to 777X
Wall Street Journal: The jetliner manufacturer's largest union approved an eight-year deal that ties production of the 777X to Washington state.
STL Post-Dispatch: The vote, announced just after midnight central time, likely ends the bid by Missouri and 21 other states to land the lucrative work for commercial aircraft and the 8,500 jobs it would bring.
Accordingly . . .
FACT CHECK: TURNS OUT THE MISSOURI BLACK CAUCUS WAS RIGHT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE LOSING BID EFFORT!!!
Remember: Mo. Black Caucus says Boeing deal withheld housing money
And so . . .
COUNT THIS AS AN EMBARRASSING HUMILIATION FOR MISSOURI GOV. JAY AND HIS MANY GOP ALLIES WHO GLADLY SOUGHT TO CUT THE THROATS OF THE LESS FORTUNATE IN ORDER TO CHASE A PIPE DREAM THAT AMOUNTED TO NOTHING!!!
Meanwhile, Missouri continues to be mired in a culture war and silly legislation aimed at entertaining talk radio listening rubes while the statewide economy and population remain stagnant.
Developing . . . But not really . . .
