TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! INSIDERS EXPLAIN HOW PREZ TRUMP & GOP TAX REFORM BILL COULD KILL NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT!!!



Even after a rigged vote, the new Kansas City airport is far from a done deal.

To wit . . .

THIS MORNING WE CELEBRATE AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS AND THEIR REAL WORLD EXPLANATION OF HOW THE GOP TAX REFORM BILL THWARTS NEW KC AIRPORT PLANS!!!

To be fair, the biz journal explained the story first but their words were as bland and dry as your mom's turkey.

Here's a savory and real world explanation . . .

"Congress passed the tax bill that would eliminate the "private activity bonds" the exact same bonds that were going to pay for the airport! I'm sure the US Senate will make major changes or not pass it at all but what a fun thought that the airport vote was all for naught! If this reform sticks, Kansas City would then have to go back to the ballot to pass airport revenue bonds to pay for the new terminal! Not sure that one gets the 75%!"

Let's also not forget that there is another vote underway on the final configuration of the new airport along in addition to more MOU slap-fighting ahead.

And so, the promise of a "free" airport keeps getting more complicated.

Moreover an EXPERT AND AWESOME TKC TIPSTER informs us . . . . . .

BROKEN PROMISE #1 - KANSAS CITY STILL FAILS TO EARN RANKING AMONG TOP AMAZON HQ2 DESTINATIONS DESPITE THE NEW AIRPORT VOTE!!!

Already the eco-devo promises have crashed and burned in the struggle to provide corporate welfare to the top patrons of local politics .  . . OR it seems that free money has become slightly harder to attain in Kansas City no matter how much local voters like the smile of the pitch man.

You decide . . .

In many ways it was a sham election. This is just one way the numbers could be overturned. There are a few more out there.

KC voters won't pay for the vote airport!

Jonsie said...

I guess that's not the case. Thanks Sly.

KC JD said...

Actually, this nightmare was the result of a hastily put together vote and corrupt bidding process.

Thanks Quinton, Thanks Jermaine.

Yes Wildman, TKC is so horrible for sprucing up a biz journal story. That's why you're reading him on Saturday morning instead of spending time with your loved ones. Sad.

Was the airport vote all for naught?

Hopefully.

They say that voter fatigue was the real reason for victory. But I'm confident the new airport can win again with another stuffed ballot box in classic KC fashion.

Trump screws over KC again and again and again. Voters should start to see a common theme here.

^^ I would not blame Trump. Instead look at who put this deal together and how they accomplished it. KC's finances have been shady for quite some time. KC is just as much of a swamp as D.C.!

Thank you, Mr. President.

Twit-In-Chief will try to screw anything that walks as long as it's female. If Slie was a female he'd just grab his pussy and say "I'm gonna' screw ya' and you will like it."

As someone who lives in Topeka watching KC politics from afar you Kansas City, Missouri citizens got conned with this new KCI plan. I watch a lot of Kansas City Television news and also watch my regular TV shows from the KC stations and, what I have learned over the years is if Sarah Smith at KMBC and KCWE is for something for the voters to vote on vote against her wishes. Sarah is another lackey for business to scam money from the taxpayers of Kansas City and beyond if it suits her. Bottom line is always vote against Sarah Smith.

"Don't worry there will be none of your taxpayer money in this new airport". ... "The airlines will pay for the new airport" Now we're asking for taxpayer Money from the Feds. Good luck with that !

@9:50 - thanks for the perfect description of Al Franken. Or is it Bob Menendez? Or Anthony Wiener? Or Elliot Spitzer? Or Bill Clinton?

Claire McCaskill is female and I don’t see too many people willing to fuck her. I doubt if if even Bill Clinton would fuck Claire. At least Trump has a smoking hot woman.

We were told the airlines were going to pay for the new airport.

This is a classic case of Mission Creep. We need a new airport. It won't cost the taxpayers anything. Well, .... Wait, we need to guarantee the debt, but it still won't cost us anything. Oops, we need to make up a huge shortfall for the next 30 years. The same thing happened with the riverboats. They were going to float on the river and offer games of skill. Oh wait, they cant float on the river. We will just build a pretend one with a huge casino behind it, but no slot machines. Now we can't make a profit without slot machines, so we need to have those too.
Want to talk about the Power and Light District? How much does it cost taxpayers every year? What do you think is going to happen at the new convention hotel when nobody has any equity (like real cash money) invested in it? We can use the city's cash money. What a great and original idea! It just goes on and on.

The election was fixed. The polling places were empty. Except for the busses carryimg seniors to the polls. The vote was bought with coffee and donuts and promises of companionship. really sad. Wish someone would report this.

Greedo said...

so funny if we vote to tear down the airport and then don't replace it with anything. So much fun!

Snap a pic of that and let’s do a billboard campaign!

I bet if we put all those food stamp recipient KC citizens to work on the new airport we could pay for it threefold. There is something you can negotiate with King Sly.
