TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN CHEERLEADERS HATE THE MISSOURI TRANSPORTATION TAX BUT STILL OWE POLITICAL DEBT OF SUPPORT!!!
As election season approaches Kansas City Toy Train cheerleaders seem to be getting uncomfortable with the strange bedfellows they have made in order to keep the streetcar on track.
To wit . . .
CHECK OUT TOY TRAIN ADVOCATES BETRAYING THEIR DEMOCRATIC PARTY SUPPORT AS THEY RAGE AGAINST THE MISSOURI TRANSPORTATION TAX!!!
Ironically, we don't disagree with their analysis of the MO Tax whatsoever . . . The fun part here is that there won't be many Democrats in Kansas City who question this tax or given these naive d-bags the time of day on this issue because Gov. Jay and big biz stand to benefit.
Again, the overriding theme here is that the Kansas City toy train is really just a small part of corporate greed and elitist politics that are more focused on looting City Hall and subverting Democracy. Toy train cheerleaders were simply taken along for the ride and now a few of them (the ones who didn't get consulting contracts) might be waking up to this fact.
Check the statement:
The Streetcar Neighborhoods Social Media Blast Seyz:
On Friday, Gov. Nixon placed a statewide transportation sales tax on the August ballot (the same ballot as the streetcar expansion election). It's not clear whether Nixon opposes the measure (his actions allude to it), but Sen. McCaskill has stated her support.
One thing is clear: a statewide sales tax for transportation would be slanted heavily towards HIGHWAY spending, even the money sent directly to the Kansas City region (where it must be divvied up amongst cities and counties).
We strongly encourage you to vote NO on the statewide tax. Lawmakers should present a more balanced funding proposal that includes a gas tax increase and tolling. Even the streetcar elections augment sales tax with special assessments along the routes.
