TKC EXCLUSIVE FACT CHECK!!! PROMISE BROKEN: KANSAS CITY TAXPAYERS WILL PAY FOR NEW AIRPORT!!!
The future of Kansas City's biggest public works project hangs in the balance as Republicans & Prez Trup push a controversial House budget that eliminates Private Activity Bonds (PABs) and challenges the biggest lie that was perpetrated on local voters in decades.
KC Insider reality check . . .
KANSAS CITY TAXPAYERS WILL PAY FOR THE NEW AIRPORT NOW THAT PRIVATE ACTIVITY BONDS ARE OUT OF FAVOR & CONFRONT POLITICAL CHALLENGE!!!
Moreover . . .
CITY HALL WAS A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT IN PUSHING THE NEW AIRPORT AND THIS SKETCHY FINANCING SCHEME!!!
The talk about KC "not paying a dime" was always a lie and everybody involved in this election knew it . . . Less than a month after a rigged vote, the fabrication is unraveling.
Our blog community readers and AWESOME TKC INSIDERS point us to the ballot language in question . . .
"All costs paid solely from the revenues derived by the City from the operation of its airports and related facilities, and without the issuance of general airport revenue bonds UNLESS such general airport revenue bonds have received prior voter approval?"
To wit . . .
THANKS TO PREZ TRUMP: WE'RE VOTING ON THE NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT AGAIN AND THIS TIME TAXPAYER WILL BE ON THE HOOK FOR MORE THAN A BILLION BUCKS!!!
And all of this speaks to the confused, haphazard and sketchy financing of the deal employed by Kansas City corporate and political leaders which is now facing push back from Prez Trump and the GOP budget in their efforts to "drain the swamp" or at least fight over financing options.
