Mikekt, in what universe are Johnson County republicans considered moderate? Cheap shots at the rest of the state aren't helpful. This governor and his hand-picked legislature are doing irreparable damage to this state.

Having passed tax cuts for businesses and individuals during the 2012 legislative session, Kansas ended the year with $86.6 million more than estimates projected, $159.6 million more than the state had taken in during the previous fiscal year. Tax receipts for June alone beat monthly projections by $25.1 million. During the year ending in May, 2013, Kansas City, KS added 9500 non-farm jobs, while Kansas City, MO added ZERO. Yes, folks, just like the conservative Republicans have been telling you, tax cuts will increase government revenue.

The major job creators in Ks have been the Democrats in Wyandotte County and the Moderate Republicans in Johnson County .

Do you ever wonder why this states main policy makers seem to come from No where Cities, Nowhere Towns & Nowhere Counties, that don't produce anywhere near the job growth of Johnson or Wyandotte Counties ?

Their growth was firmly established before Brownies magic tax shifting plans took effect ?

Figures often beguile me, particularly when I have the arranging of them myself; in which case the remark attributed to Disraeli would often apply with justice and force: "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics." - Mark Twain's Own Autobiography: The Chapters from the North American Review
