Fox4: Feeling a chill as debate over the city's budget heats up

Money line . . .

Kansas City councilwoman Katheryn Shields joins FOX4’s John Holt and The Kansas City Star’s Dave Helling this week to weigh in on steps the city is considering as it tries to cut millions in spending to balance its budget.

Shields believes the city council didn’t do enough before passing last year’s budget in March. She points out that COVID-19 was already sweeping the U.S. and Kansas City was facing a pandemic. According to Shields, with unemployment spiking and businesses closing, there were already signs that revenues were going to suffer.

“Our budget director assured me that we were not going to be impacted seriously by this COVID. It just wasn’t going to be that serious. We did not need to make any adjustments to the budget we passed last spring,” Shields said. “Of course that turned out to be wrong.”

I want to hear from that anti-cryptocurrency guy now that the city even recognizes that printing presses running 24/7 devalues the money issued by the government.

Here we are, bemoaning the city wasting money, and the topic just before this is a perfect example of the administration's complete and utter inability to STOP UN-NEEDED SPENDING!!!!!!!!!! It's simply what democraps do!!!!!

"Not going to be seriously impacted by Covid."

That is typical, pitch-perfect thinking for any KC Budget Director. Earlier quotes from the brainiacs in this positions include

"Nobody will ever shop online,"

"The Jazz museum will be KC's biggest tourist attraction."

"It's perfectly safe to take a midnight stroll on Troost.""

You give a government bureaucrat $1 million for their budget and they will wastefully spend it all.

You give a government bureaucrat $180 million for their budget and they will wastefully spend it all.

The point is, governments never reduce budgets, or save for a rainy day.

They use every dime and more that taxpayers provide them to hire more bureaucrats, increase their fat salaries, and increase their pensions.

An increase in taxpayer funds seldom go to the basic services they were intended for such as clean water, street improvements, street lighting, sewers, crime prevention etc.

Councilwoman Shields is doing a great job. With her fourth term on the Kansas City Council, she gets reelected because she is competent.
