TKC QUESTION: SHOULD PREZ TRUMP FUND ILLEGAL KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EXTENSION???



Back in August Kansas City voters approved Question 1 - An effort to STOP KANSAS CITY STREETCAR DEVELOPMENT WITHOUT CITYWIDE APPROVAL.

Quick reminder of Democracy in action . . .

"Kansas City residents voted 51 percent to 49 percent in support of a petition initiative from streetcar opponents. The vote was 17,344 to 16,492 in favor of reining in the city’s participation."

However . . .

KANSAS CITY IS SO CORRUPT THAT ELECTIONS DON'T REALLY MATTER!!!

Even tax fighters realize this and they're taking a court fight to Jeff City over the Unconstitutionally of streetcar expansion following a FULL STOP public vote.

In the meantime, the toy train streetcar effort chugs along . . .

KC Biz Journal: KC Streetcar Authority advances extension effort, will seek federal grant

Not really surprising and it's propaganda not news . . . But it does beg an interesting question:

SHOULD PREZ TRUMP FUND THE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR DESPITE A CITYWIDE VOTE TO SLOW DOWN THE PROJECT AND THE LEGAL FIGHT AGAINST THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF THIS EFFORT???

Given that Prez Trump wanted to cut federal transit Tiger Grants from the new GOP budget. It might be a tough sell.

You decide . . .

Kansas City doesn't need more streetcar.

We need:

More police.

More street repair.

More funding schools and libraries.

It's time to put this development project to an end. If the luxury apartment realtors want it, they can build it.

Thanks for the money Sly!

If the streetcar is depending on the Trump Administration for cash. Then they're finished. There's very little possibility a Democratic Party controlled city in a Republican state will get that kind of funding.

Maybe Sly can get Cleaver to ask Trump for the money. That would be pretty funny to see Cleaver put in his place.

The fact that Carwash Cleaver is KC's emissary to Washington DC has surely put paid to any chance that President Trump will approve money for the putative streetcar. Gotta play nice if you want a cupcake with lunch.

Gotta play nice, like Chuck and Nancy.

Raise the debt ceiling. New FEMA funding. Continuing resolution for current budget spending.

Deal!

When is Trump going to start that wall around KC?

I was a Democrat until I moved here 7 years ago. My property Tax goes up $1,000 a year with the UMKC extension of the Street Car. I had little to no chance to vote for this extension. I will do everything I can do to influence the Trump administration to oppose any funding for this extension including donating a significant amount of money to the Republican Party.
The City Council is a corrupt organization with no respect for the folks they are suppose to represent.

The TDD cannot collect revenue until they have locked in 100% of their funding, and federal funding is a key part of this. Hyperbole suggests that Trump plans to gut TIGER; most predictions about the terrible things Trump will do are off base but here's hoping he gives these streetcar cretins a kick in the nuts.

Der Fuhrer isn't going to fund your streetcar. It's an absurd suggestion. The streetcar doesn't count as infrastructure.

He's busy ruining the country & threatening nuclear war.

Hey Byron, Trump keeps your welfare checks rolling in, doesn't he?

Is this the extension that will be named the Kraske Line? He should be able to talk Trump into giving us the money.
