Kansas City Mayor Q & Pals STILL Working To Defund Police

As we approach budget time we'll hear this tired old argument again and again . . .

One of Mayor Q's supporters misspent his time on Sunday to type up a treatise that old school political consultant Steve Glorioso dreamed up years ago . . . It's nice to remember him on Sunday given that he's currently working on pushing up daisies.

Here's the pitch . . .

"Put yourself in the shoes of a major American city who has lots of things to fix but has been overpaying by at least $40 million per year and that $40 million isn’t getting the job done.

"Well…that’s Kansas City and its police budget is bloated and the overall department is ineffective.

"$270,000,000. Two Hundred And Seventy Million Dollars. Or 37% of Kansas City’s general fund, which is the portion of the budget we have the flexibility to change year to year.

"That’s the requested 2022-2023 budget for the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department.

"If you add in the Fire Department and the small municipal court budget, you get close to 70% of the city’s general fund spent on public safety."

Answer . . .

Spending money on police & fire is better than paying for activists, hobos or some sketchy "community" slush fund.

In fairness, we share the argument to the contrary.

Kansas City Is Still Giving The Police Too Much Money (and getting poor results)

Do you ever daydream about winning the lottery? Or even just eliminating something in your budget that you might need but are overpaying for? You think about all the cool and or helpful things that money could buy. Maybe you could get a new AC unit. I need one.
