KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTERS CONTEND GOV. BROWNBACK PLAYED MCI SINGLE-TERMINAL SUPPORTERS AS BUDGET BATTLE TRICK!!!



As always, we appreciate alternative perspectives and locals who dig beyond the headlines to examine the local discourse from critical standpoint.

To wit . . .

DID KANSAS GOV. BROWNBACK DISTRACT KANSAS CITY DEAD TREE MEDIA???

Here's some important political analysis on the topic that we wanted to share:

Citizens For Responsible Government - Kansas City: GOVERNOR SAM BROWNBACK PLAYS KCMO PAID CONSULTANTS AND PUNDITS LIKE A FIDDLE

KCMO paid consultants and single terminal airport pundits (STAP) led by the head of the City Council's Airport Committee, are playing right into Governor Brownback's hands. We commented several weeks about a FAKE NEWS article in the Kansas City Star reporting that Kansas might build a new airport to compete with KCI if KCMO didn't get something going. This was an attempt by local paid consultants and the single terminal airport pundits (STAP) to scare the public into doing something stupid at our airport.

Governor Brownback, being the astute politician he is, seized the opportunity to comment on the possibility. This immediately moved the conversation from the financial problems in Kansas to the possibility of a new airport. The Governor gained some much needed breathing room and the KCMO paid consultants and STAP fired up the airport rhetoric. Of course the consultants were anxious to get going, the collected $12,000,000 plus on the last airport go around, telling the City what they wanted to hear.

We are already hearing " the airlines will pay for a new terminal"! DAH! of course they will, who else? When you buy a ticket to fly somewhere who do you pay? Not the aviation department or the city, you pay the airlines. The airlines pay rent for gates, parking places for planes, jetways, etc. etc.. These payments from the airlines pay for the airport NOW. There will be no change in the future.

Be aware and don't be taken in by all this hysteria....

This is a good theory BUT it seems like a City Hall planted story to me. Did you see Jolie Justus try and capitalize of the story. Couldn't bear the thought of her and Brownback in bed together. Gross.

Anyone who believed this baloney for a minute, including Sly's comment about KCMO "having to get on the stick with the new terminal" is a candidate for ocean front property in Oklahoma.
Completely a ridiculous hoax.
Nice set-up for the tiny minority of low-information KCMO voters to show up at the polls in April and tax themselves to fill up the trough with brand new buckets full of money.
The antics in KC would be fun to watch if they didn't drag down the whole region.
First as tragedy; then as farce.
