Vs is out of style. But I guess it's a beautiful downward spiral.

If KC passes a gas tax it will be very easy for many people to get gas in surrounding towns. For any extra revenue they get from new gas taxes, they'll lose revenue on lost gas and food sales at convenience stores. Basically, they won't make extra money but they will be punishing citizens who have no choice but to buy gas in KC.
Leave it to our clueless and incompetent KC leaders to screw things up.

sLIE certainly embraces the tax and giveaway mentality of the dummocraps, screw the taxpayers and help the rich get filthy rich, this is what people need to protest, the man has gotten away with giving away our money with no intention of helping the citizens, he’s fed into the trump derangement syndrome to keep his own people from scrutinizing him. Pretty smart really, too bad he’s used his people to help only himself and they’re too dumb to notice.
