Kansas City Jazz Museum Earns $1-MILLION More In Unbalanced 12th & Oak Budget

Something to yell about during upcoming budget meetings . . . Whilst the rate of borrowing threatens to push KCMO closer to bankruptcy, here's a line item that continually sparks ire among residents who think this kind of money needs to be redirected to more pressing infrastructure priorites . . . After hundreds of millions have been spent on this jazz district since the 90s, check 's the latest slap in the face to taxpayers . . . Credit where it's due to the newspaper for calling it out:

Kansas City may spend another $1 million on the jazz museum | The Kansas City Star

Kansas City's new budget calls for spending more than $1 million in the next fiscal year on the operations of the American Jazz Museum at 18th and Vine. This must be the year that the museum turns itself around.

BS, Liberty Memorial was not troubled like the jazz dist. You can't even compare them together.

The jazz dist is and will always be a failure sinking money into this is nothing more than a racial thing.

That’s funny, I remember when liberty memorial was in deep trouble, maybe a little research would help unconfuse you.

The new jazz people need Escalades and they ain’t cheap you know!

New Escalades are around $100000 now. A million just doesn’t go as far as it used to. Thus the inoperable displays, lack of maintenance, etc.

More money must be spent! Even if only a few people benefit- more money spent is good because it will make liberals feel better- and after all the guilt they feel for the failed Hillary campaign and knowing she might go to jail or should- and the travesty of the failure of AOC and her terrible middle finger to jobs in NY that pay over $100k- liberals need to feel good.

Let’s have liberals raise their hand and tax them hard and heavy- let’s tax kale at $75 an ounce, pot at $500 an ounce, every article they read on their flagship Huff-a-ton Post $40, and everyone that thinks Bernie Sanders is the answer $100. All of AOC’s followers on Instaface and SnapBook (or whatever social media they partake including TwitterGram) can pay $1,000 tax.

This should pay for the Jazz Museum and help establish psychology units for liberals when Trump easily is re-elected in 2020.

7:06 for the win!

Let’s use the money scanners (they can scan the ID strips in $20s and $50s and $100s from a block away) and tax people who have over $5,000 in their house. Can be taxed at the AOC rate of 70%.

You have to love liberals for their ideas. If they used their energy for things other than wealth redistribution- they might find themselves creating jobs rather than running companies away that pay too much- AOC’s actions are like wiping before you poop... makes no sense.

Lucas, Reed, James- Social Engineering: Spending on Jazz Museum, MKL renaming, 18th and Vine, Linwood Grocery, etc.This spending will benefit a small percentage of KCMO residents. ROI is a negative number.

Basic City Services? Deferred road maintenance, reduction of police force, investment in curbs, side walks, city lighting? Sly and his enablers, have turned their backs on basic city services. We are now experiencing the result of what deferred maintenance means to our roads... 2019 murder rate puts us on par with Baltimore and Chicago as the murder capital of the US.
Hey Sly, is KCMO still on a ROLL???

KCMO is doomed to stay in this ridiculous cycle of pissing money away if they elect ANY of the current clowncil members as mayor.
