TKC QUESTION TONIGHT: IS THE SHUT DOWN WORTH IT FOR KANSAS CITY?!?!
The zero hour is at hand for what could be the definitive policy battle betwixt Prez Trump Vs. Democratic Party leaders and his own party.
And so we ask our reader community . . .
WILL THE IMPENDING GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN HELP OR HURT KANSAS CITY?!?
Again, it's worth reminding locals that KC is home to at least 50K government workers and even more industries which directly depend on the Feds.
Most polling suggests a majority of Americans oppose a shut down. The ensuing fight will be an effort to place blame.
