On KU Medical Center under the budget knife; committee removes $10 million for health education building

Why didn't they use the Fairway Bldg. for the Med-School? Oh, they were using all available resources to get cancer research center designation. Maybe they could ask Johnson County taxpayers to bail them out again.

If Senator Arpke knew how to manage finances, I would appreciate his opinion better. What a bozo.

OK, KU Med should just close the Salina campus. How's that Senator Arpke!

Thank God Honest Tom Arpke is on the case! Sure, he had to resign from Kris Kobach's campaign for not reporting a quarter of the campaign finances, but he'll get to the bottom of this!

"Having a downpayment on a new project is one of first places you look when you don't know the landscape of what is happening on the revenue side," Masterson said.

Voting for moderate Republican and/or Democrat candidates is what more voters will do now that they're seeing the landscape of what is happening on the conservative Republican side.

So providing the state and region (especially in rural areas) with quality doctors is arrogant, liberal and elite??

The state doesn't need more doctors, let alone better trained doctors. That would be like saying that the power of prayer isn't sufficient to make people well. The state doesn't need an accredited medical school or even one university ranked in the top 100 nationally. Investment in a new medical center would clearly be a waste of money that is needed for more important things, like a special election to change the state's constitution so that legislators can make funding to public education unfair and inequitable and expensive new voter id procedures so that three people can't vote illegally in Kansas elections.

This is Kansas, and the rules are simple. If it has any connection to education it's bad; if it makes the wealthy wealthier it's good; if its dumb, unethical, or exploitative it will be introduced as a bill in the legislature.

Good thing LG40 will never need the services of a medical center. Meanwhile, back in the reality-based community, "Arpke sald "Looking at the overall performance of the regents universities, it seemed to me that the University of Kansas was being, in my mind, a little fiscally irresponsible in looking at their tuition increases of the last 10 years of over 200 percent" - what a coincidence that tuition goes up as state aid goes down. If you are concerned about tuition increases, Arpke you should look in the mirror. Guess that's not the reality-based community after all.

Excellent news!

KU is beginning to pay the price for their liberal indoctrination of Kansas kids. Most Kansans do not want their hard earned tax dollars being spent on funding the lifestyle of the arrogant liberal elite.
