On Brownback: Private GOP tax talks ‘going well’


Kansass 11 months, 1 week ago

My question is, why are we paying so many representitives if only a handful are making the decisions? Seems like huge government waste of our tax dollars.

Perhaps it's time to lay off the dead weight and save the state a bundle to fill in Sams budget hole, so he doesn't have to squeeze it all out of the middle class and poor.

After all, King Sam doesn't need a legislature to drive the state to ruin.

Brownback and his cronies sitting around agreeing with each other about eviscerating public education, taking more and more from the poor and middle class to fund the already-wealthy. Of COURSE it's "going well".

Where's the transparency this administration has been touting? I see the lack of it every single day...this is no exception.

When Obama did this with Obamacare, had control of the House and temporary control of the Senate, he was accused of ramming legislation down the throats of Americans. When he won't give up on changing the tax rates on upper earners in exchange for entitlement reform, he's accused of an unwillingness to compromise and exhibit bi-partisanship. In Kansas, we don't even bother. All hail, Brownbackistan.

Brownback is a disaster. The Kansas House is a disaster. The Kansas Senate is a clusterfvck.

The complete disregard for over half the KS population will doom this state. Brownback will be ultimately be responsible and the GOP at large will suffer as a result. The majority of their membership will be deceased within 15 years and the young people that possess a moral compass will be left to pick up the pieces. It will be a long road back but we are Kansans and will overcome the adversity perpetuated on us by the false-Christian prophecies of the Right.

Brownback is a train wreck happening in slow motion.

The AG can't fulfill his statutory obligations and works against government transparency.

But, as bad as they are they probably will get reelected because there is no one to step up and run and because of low information voters that have clue about what their elected officials really do or don't do.

Taxes have to come from somewhere but not the rich.
