TKC FACT CHECK!!! PREZ TRUMP GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN THREAT TARGETS LARGEST KANSAS CITY EMPLOYER AMID CHRISTMASTIME!!!



A fun fact about our city that most local noobs always forget:

"The federal government is the largest employer in Kansas City. In the wider metropolitan area, the federal government, either directly or through contracts, employs 41,500 people. The combined annual payroll of these jobs is more than $3 billion."

Accordingly . . .

A GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN WILL HIT KANSAS CITY HARDER THAN MOST!!!

NO matter how readers feel about the issue, there's no denying that KC will be on the front lines of the decision.

Prez Trump usually keeps his promises in these kinds of showdowns.



Meanwhile, the outgoing Congress and Senate confronts more bitter fighting amid a dearth of leadership from within their ranks.

The big money impasse is growing worse as news from the border threatens the push the crisis to the boiling point OR a capitulation from Prez Trump. Check the links:



Politico: Trump threatens government shutdown over border wall funding

Fortune: Trump 'Totally Willing' to Shut Down Government Over Border Wall Funding

CNN: Mueller's office would continue working in the event of a government shutdown

Fox News: Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York told reporters that Democrats are willing to agree to $1.6 billion for border security, but not Trump’s figure, saying, “If there is any shutdown, it’s on President Trump’s back.”

Vox: Trump wants $5 billion for his border wall. The Senate bill isn’t anywhere close.

WaPo: Trump says he’s considering a Plan B if Congress rejects his demand for $5 billion in border wall funding

USA Today: Another government shutdown? Congress has a week to pass a spending bill to keep the lights on

I think the better question is, who will the public blame. Trump usually escapes the wrath of the public or ignores it. The new house might take a lot of heat even though they aren't on the job yet.

Scarier still, once the blue wave takes hold. This argument is over. The President won't have the votes. .

Political suicide to do this during American shopping time. this one will get solved quick. Maybe a shut down of only two days.

The sheep will rack up more credit card debt regardless. Most Fed workers here will be elated to have the time off from work.

It’s a threat, nobody on either side wants this to happen, but you never know what the dummocraps are capable of, they are incredibly stupid

It's just non essential jobs, meaning the loafers and dead weights collecting checks will be off the clock.

Says the retard who fails to realize that it’s a repubtard shutting down the government, but then again you know repubturds have shit for brains.

The real question is why is the govt the biggest employer in the metro. We need more private enterprise, like manufacturing, to get us off reliance on the govt employment.

Never fear. The Stars evening headlines assure us we can weather anything here in CKMO


Could scooter revenue fund affordable housing in KC? Some council members think so.

City board balks at, then approves, tax incentive deals for new KC hotel, apartments.

GOOD!

This will identify those employees truly needed to run the government and the rest should be let go. It would be good start at bringing this government back to that which our Founding Fathers envisioned.

If one third of the federal work force keeled over dead at the same time, there would be little to no change for the rest of us. If there were an effect on the economy, it would be a positive one.

MAGA KC said...

The Democrats will absolutely hold responsibility for this not Trump. If you look at what people want they are for the border wall and don't mind the expense to pay for it in the end if they don't get it it will be the Democrat opposition to who is to blame.

How many people work for the Federal government in KC? ABOUT HALF OF THEM

Anonymous said...

^^^^^^ Yup.

So I wonder about all those new jobs that KC was supposed to create.

They aren't really coming despite all of the tax breaks.

December 2018 still has a Republican President, Republican Senate, and Republican House.

So a December shutdown is the Democrats fault.

The biggest and best brains in MAGA display their brilliant logic again.

BTW, what happened to all those great budget bills Yoder bragged about passing? They weren't really done? Shocking. More big spending CRs coming up. More massive "conservative" deficit spending. You MAGA lemmings just keep getting played and then cheer about the lies.

We’re all getting played but the republicans are angels compared to you dummocraps, you guys are just plain stupid, always have been, always will be. Thank god we still have the senate or it would be death and destruction. I swear you guys are dumber than a box a of rocks.

MAGA!
