Another example of the soon to fail conservative Kansas experimental lab.

Easy answer as to why this is being done. Kochs told Brownback what they wanted, Brownback told his lackys in Legislature to do it, so it's being done.

Are you still glad you blew Mr. Brownback's trumpet when he was running for office, Sir? He is doing what he said he would do if he got the chance.

The JW clearly doesn't speak with a single editorial voice. And this particular voice is clearly not that of Dolph, who will always endorse the Republican candidate, no matter what they say or do.

Oh, but there is a compelling reason: this is a direct gift to the oil-and-gas lobby, whose storage tanks and other such business facilities in Kansas will now be un-taxed. Remember whom to thank when your property tax bill jumps higher than its ever been.

Should we expect to see that exploding growth in the Kansas economy anytime soon?

Or does that explosion only apply to a select few who have seen their after tax (no tax) net profits soar?

And yet these decisions are being made by the very lawmakers and governors that the LJW ALWAYS endorses. It won't matter what Brownback and his owners at the Kansas Chamber ultimately do. The LJW will back them up no matter what come 2014.

ALEC Brownback hard at work on the facist agenda. His sidekick Arthur Laffer from the beltway is in Topeka bringing Supply Side Economics to Kansas..... after all Laffer is the artist of Supply Side Economics..... living off our tax dollars.

Subsidizing the wealthy. Poor rich people. The poor just need to make them richer, so they can pretend to create jobs.

Take the bait. This is just one persons opinion. I doubt much of it is true. It is called managing by fear sheeple.
