On Governor: Higher education deserves to avoid cuts


Paul R Getto 5 years, 1 month ago

“Higher Education seems to continue to create ways to spend money, and spend more on existing programs,” Rhoades said in an emailed statement. “At some point someone needs to ask, ‘How much is enough?’”

A good point, perhaps. Do you think this concept might work with other entities, the MIC, the farm program and business tax cuts?

Fine then all Sam ALEC Brownback needs to do is VETO the cuts...... very simple.

No education needs to be cut for that is the future of our state and country.

It takes a special kind of stupid to make comments like the one Marc Rhoades made. I exhibits a complete lack of understanding of what makes a state great.

He, the "speaker" (if one can call him that - a title doesn't garner respect), and their right-wing whacko buddies are making such a mess of this state and our retupation, it may take a decade to repair the damage.

More like a generation if 31% Sam is reelected.

Rep. Rhoades is not Speaker. That is Rep. Merrick.

Even if you disapprove of the incumbent and the job that he or she is doing, the position is deserving of respect. Generally, criticism is easier to deflect if the critic does not follow established social protocol.

The antics in the anti-intellectual and anti-education Kansas legislature continue.

And where did Rhodes get his information on these "funds"? His imaginary friends--you know, the ones who all showed up for his bill to gut the civil service system?

They will not because of Sam's terrible financial policies.
