Congressman Cleaver Fights Disparity In Coronavirus Federal Stimulus Funding



The scramble for federal stimulus is intense as local biz confront a dramatically altered economic environment after COVID-19 lockdown.

Accordingly, Kansas City's top ranking politico advocates for biz within his community.

Money line:

"Kansas City, Missouri, Congressman Emanuel Cleaver organized a conference call with local salons and barbershops to discuss the concerns.”I heard from them horror stories about their inability to access those dollars,” Cleaver said of Missouri’s 5th Congressional District. ”We're seeing disparity in the recipients of the money."

Hope Jackson County doesn’t give KC any money.
That toy train KC built... no one will ever ride it again in any sane numbers... what a waste.

Bet KC and Lucas still try to extend the trail/trolley.

Hint: sell it for scrap to pay the city’s bills.

Frank White isn’t sharing any money because you dummies never prepped for a rainy day. You did extend your rainy day of 10-10-10 based on no science. Now you are the laughing stock of the nation while your businesses are handcuffed and broke.

Cleaver desperately misses the good ole days of the Congressional earmark, when he could grab a couple million and personally choose how it would be spread around in "the community".
Tax, tax.
Spend, spend.
Elect, elect.
When a member of Congress is able to accomplish as little as Cleaver, bringing home the pork is about the only way to hang around.
Sad.

Until the voters get out and clean up the city KC doesn't and shouldn't get one penny. Oh and who is it that wants to keep the city closed????????????????????? But Cleaver and Lucas think money grows on trees. Car wash anyone?

Did Congressman Carwash give tips on how to scam the SBA out of a million dollar loan by defaulting on payments, stalling for years, and still not paying after a judge ruled you are personally liable for repayment?

Notice how local media won't cover the story because Carwash is Black and has a (D) after his name.

850 it's just they can't compete with white intelligence, creativity, and desire to achieve. We just can't go around and make everything equally easy and everyone equal. Just reality.

This guy is a disgrace. He should be voted out in the next election. Trump is a con man and disaster but I who am a Democrat would never in a 1000 years want Clever to replace Trump. This is the basis weakness of the Democratic party.

Clever, White, James, Reed... What could go wrong with these guys influencing City policy?

If the wrong businesses are getting the money, it's because Cleaver and his colleagues wrote a bad law. What he now tries to pass off as loopholes are actually features. But I guess they had to pass the law to find out what was in it.

Keep running Jacob Turk and Cleaver will die in office

We need term limits. These politicians of both parties create a little fiefdom for themselves and never leave.
