WILL PREZ TRUMP BORDER WALL GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN RUIN CHRISTMAS IN KANSAS CITY?!?!
More importantly . . . Is it worth it?!?!
Just a quick Monday reminder, here's a fun fact that's always lost on local media noobs when talking about impending government shut downs . . .
"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."
And so, the impending government shut down is more important to local than the rest of the nation.
