Road To KCMO Defeat: Show-Me STL Taking Most Missouri Transportation Tax Funds

STL Biz Journal reports that most of this cash has already been "prioritized" to the posh suburban cities surrounding the po'dunk towns on the other side of the state: What Missouri road projects would a tax increase support?

All you goofballs shrieking nonstop about the streetcar should be up in arms about this bullshit...but instead, crickets.

Stupid ass suburbanites. Enjoy your 3/4 cent, undue unjust burden, boondoggle of KC subsidizing rural roads no one uses, the trucking industry, and rich StL suburban sprawl.

Fucking hillbillies.

Take a coule Ambien and give the comments section another try in a couple hours.
Also, please see if you can sign up for a course in public policy 101 in one of the local community colleges.
Remedial math wouldn't hurt either.

The only roads KC ought to be pushing are the ones leading out of this fucking town.

I wonder how much funding for the toy train could and would be used for the toy train?

This is just insane. Shouldn't people that use the roads pay for them. This means gas tax increase not a general sales tax increase.

No tax increase necessary. If KCMO has $200 million to waste on a trolley, they have enough money to fund road repairs in Missouri.

Gasoline tax in Kansas is 25 cents, 17 cents in Missouri.
