Downgrade Hits Commerce Bank

Economic uncertainty rises across the nation and hits hold right here in Kansas City. 

Overall . . . The banking sector is troubled given that the current White House administration seems quite fond of "free money" to solve the world's problems . . .

Commerce Bank released the following statement about the news . . .
