TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! INSIDER: MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS CUTTING 60 MILLION BUCKS FROM BUDGET DOESN'T COME CLOSE!!! KANSAS CITY NEEDS BIDEN BAILOUT OR WE'LL GO BANKRUPT!!!

A recent conversation with a Kansas City insider offers a stunning glimpse at the reality of this town's precarious financial situation.

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY CONFRONTS BANKRUPTCY AND CUTTING THE BUDGET BY 60 MILLION ISN'T GOING TO HELP!!!

Out of the loop locals were stunned by Mayor Q's recent announcement that locals should prepare for EPIC cuts next year. Sadly, that's most insiders realize that's not going to be enough.

Here's the word . . .

"How much to do you think revenue is off this year? 60 million doesn't represent very much of a 1.7 BILLION dollar budget. 

We're talking about what could be a 15-20% drop in revenue from a budget that was already structurally imbalanced. There's no city in the world that has the kind of padding to deal with that economic hit. 60 million won't make a dent. 

We're talking about cuts of up to 200 million to stay above water. 

If we can't do that, then the only thing that we can hope for is a 'Biden Bailout' because KC isn't the only municipality facing this kind of shortfall. Sure, I don't like to think about the implications of the government printing more money . . . But your readers should know that 60 million worth of cuts is just the starting point. Without some kind of additional stimulus, this town will be forced to declare bankruptcy if it doesn't double the cuts and then some . . ."

Even worse, as the cold weather approaches Kansas City now confronts the prospect of worsening coronavirus, more shut downs and greater economic hardship amid the backdrop of civil unrest and fighting over the election. 

And so, for payday Friday . . . Kansas City readers should understand the dire financial circumstances confronting this town that aren't going to be solved by the empty promise of a quick recovery.

But what about the streetcar and the 18th & Vine district.

Who will fund the pizza parties to stop crime. Those seemed to work well.

Sad.

I guess we're talking about defund the police after all. but not because of politics, just because we're broke.

Maybe council could give back some salaries. They only work a couple of days anyway.

When you shut down your tax base with no good reason, you’re f ed. When your murder rate rivals other crime ridden cities your f ed. When you have a mayor with no ethical framework you’re F ed. KC sad to watch but this will only spiral downward from here. I feel sorry for the businesses located there.

Q-Ball wants the PD below a thousand cops. Should get that plus 250 homicides a year. KC will be the new Detroit.
Weird.

You know what’s weird-the fact that you can’t come up with anything more original day after day. Stop torturing the educated you strange bastard. Come up with something new or I will come over to you and your mom’s house again for her homemade pie.

Maybe. He can take it out of Rex Archer’s salary? It is mostly his fault.

We should declare bankruptcy. The only thing I want from City Hall is police (who come too rarely as it is) and working roads (that does not include bike lanes). Everything else can be done by the private sector. Most of that 1.7 billion is waste!

Just in case everybody is wondering, that’s what this whole mess is about, money, the dimwits can’t live within their means and expect to be bailed out anytime they need it. That’s why they have attacked President Trump 24/7 for four years now, he won’t give them money because they steal it. Simple as that.

Maybe the best option is to declare bankruptcy. Let the bankruptcy trustee sort out who gets paid and who gets stiffed. Certainly the mayor and council critters aren't up to the job.

Maybe they should lay-off all the white people.... queball is a racist bastard

Ask Cleaver Congress and the Senate will have to approve.Sleepy JOE will not give Kansas City Missouri money. HE DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE IT IS. Joe will spend the money in the Middle East on more endless wars. He is the Globalist puppet. And HARRIS WILL BE CALLING THE SHOTS That is the Clintons plan

Less Money + Less Cops = " Glad I'll be embalming the badge in less than 13 months "............... Less the HOMICIDES roll on..........

Kamala for real president said...

Dims spending money like drunkin' sailors for years, as if no limits, on unneeded blingy shit. Much of it to keep P&L, 18th & Vine and Westport type venues alive, vs roads, water rates, and the things that really make a city livable for the majority of residents.

Yet the lackey minority and low information and low IQ voting bloc will continue to enable this shit as long as they think free stuff is on the way. Indeed, declare bankruptcy for the little bit of good it will do. After that air clears, it'll be back to business as usual.

When your weekly trash removal turns into (maybe) bi-weekly or monthly, you will know we're in the bigs.

Hope Kansas City goes bankrupt.

Corruption is coming back to bite them.

Bankruptcy couldn't happen to a better bunch given what they have done to small businesses, churches and law-abiding citizens.

It's about getting their hands on the bailout...just think of the amount of money for your cronies to spend and "manage."

Many have already written to Mr President Trump and asked him to NOT send a penny to KC’s leaderless Mayor 10-10-10.

The Mayor is 100% responsible for shutting down the city and scaring businesses to close. Many have closed and will never set foot in crime ridden broke KC.

Why would anyone open a business or keep in that forces businesses to close and layoff workers?

Florida and DeSantis are open 100% and will get back to normal soon.

KC has not a prayer and a Mayor that never should have been elected and will forever be known as Mayor 10-10-10.

Trump supporters tomorrow will call the Mayor a pussy.

Lucas, Faucci and Pelosi all caught without masks in public while shutting down businesses and hurting the poor and Blacks.

Tomorrow you will see hundreds of Hispanics and Blacks supporting Trump and calling Lucas a pussy.

Going Bankrupt is what happens when a Communist College Professor becomes Mayor of Kansas City.

States should allow the public universities to go bankrupt and then rebuild higher education from scratch. Create a new Higher Education system that will actually benefit students to learn a career without bankrupting mom and dad.

Public Universities are where socialism, communism, hatred for America, revisionist history, unethical behavior, sexual deviancy, riots, looting and arson are taught and organized.

Taxpayers should not be stuck funding their outrageous life-time pension plans the City of Kansas City created for itself.

What ever is funded should be what is paid out as a pension benefit; no more.

Can cities even declare bankruptcy?

A Kansas City bankruptcy is well earned.

Biden bailout????? Biden won't bail KC out as a matter of fact the democrats are blocking a bailout. Trump's not going to help until morons like Quinton Lucas get their head screwed on straight and stop being a terrorist.

Just a minor arithmetic correction to make the story more accurate:
With the real numbers of cuts to the budget that will be coming, KCMO already IS bankrupt.
Bankruptcy begins very slowly and then very very quickly.
Lucas and the other electeds and the "interim" city manager aren't smart enough to even know where the city stands financially, much less honest enough to share the bad news with the public.
Instead the silly childish infighting and name-calling continues, the airport terminal costs continue to grow unabated, streets are still a mess, water bills are out of sight, and the homicide rate is breaking all records.
KCMO doesn't have a municipal government.
There's just incompetence, showboating, terrible waste of tax dollars, upside-down priorities, and playing at running a city.
Sad.

Why not hit Mahomie up for the money? He's got it.

Blacks realized zero gains from 8 years of Obama.
Poor KC blacks continue to be poor under Mayor 10-10-10.

Candace Owens and others are making huge strides in educating blacks that the Democrats- who started slavery and started the KKK- is the most corrupt and racist party in the history of the US.

By shutting down businesses and putting thousands of poor and middle class KCians out of work... Lucas and his regime is responsible for widespread bankruptcies, evictions, suicides and putting KC in the middle of the worst crime ever.

Vote Trump. By voting Biden America will see tax increases along with 27% unemployment with blacks and suicides that are outrageous.

Tomorrow you will see a parade of cars like no other!

City Manager Schulte bailed as he could see the bankruptcy handwriting on the wall.

BLM and ANTIFA have destroyed KCMO's sales tax base via riot, arson, looting, assualts, threats of violence against shoopers and tax paying citizens.

No one wants to work downtown anymore because of the threat of violence. If you try to defend yourself, Peters Baker will charge you instead of the assailant.

More employers will leave for the suburbs and thus KC will lose the earninga tax revenue.

You want your suburb or community to be a bankrupt, crime ridden shithole like KCMO vote for Joe Biden and the Democrat Party.

By supporting and encouraging the BLM rioters, Quentin Lucas placed KC in a death spiral.

Kansas City is going down the drain. Think of all of those JoCo professionals who no longer work downtown. Think of all of that earnings tax $$$ that the KCMO City Hall is no longer collecting. I guess painting "Black Lives Matter" on streets may make one feel good, but it does not pay for anything (not even a turkey sandwich).

Anonymous said...

I've said all along, their plan for all of this is to sacrifice the liberal run cities, like KC, in order to elect Biden with a promise of huge federal bailouts after he's elected. They are gambling with our lives and livelihoods. Q and this council must go.

Yes. Only States cannot go bankrupt.

Hey 4-15 you tough-guy libertarian, what about public health in a pandemic, will a private sector company take care of that?

^^^Any vaccine that works against Covid will be developed by the private sector. When the government gets involved we get fiascos like the CDC screwing up the test kits, FDA delaying development of test protocols and NY Governor Cuomo ordering nursing homes to accept Covid-positive patients. What the government is good at, and the only thing it's good at, is bullying its citizens.

Anonymous said...

Government run CDC is worthless.

Did the CDC or Dr Fauci have a vaccine for corona virus? No they did not.

Pfizer and J&J are on clinical trial stage 3 for a covid vaccine testing humans.

Trump quickly determined CDC and Fauci were worthless so he met and partnered with the private sector,

Meanwhile CDC tells us to wash our hands.

Thanks CDC,for that advice!
