On Kansas seeing job growth but still lags behind pre-recession levels

I think you've flipped the identities of the two economists in the cutline

Wow? Are you saying that Mr. Brownback's tax changes are not beginning to entice new high paying jobs? I wonder when that may happen? Sounds like it will be after he is gone. I wonder if the GOP in Kansas wants responsibility? Many of them will still be here when he moves on to a think tank/government job in Washington!

I just have to chuckle when you mention Brownback Joining a "Think Tank"! ROFLMAO.

Missouri is getting 15,000 new jobs. I think that proves Brownback's theories never work.

That is where out of government party players go

Brownback's tax cuts are a train wreck. The train will crash long before he can grow the tax base, if he ever could grow it. How many companies really want to come to Kansas? We have no beaches.

most folks want lower taxes, and prefer no reduction in services,,,,,,,,, it is our god given right . you figure it out ,,,,,,,,,,, kinda like why work for 10 bucks an hour when you can sit at home and get 15 bucks an hr in unemployment benefits ? not too hard to figure.... but cut our taxes anyway

Cutting government services is alright with me if that is what it takes to reduce taxes.

Is it ok if the services that are cut benefit you directly or indirectly?

hey, lawyers for Sammy are doing great. State will be spending lots on defending undefendable laws -- but Kris and Liar Sammy will be in the news many times. That's the goal. Kansas be screwed.

"Noormohmad and Tyler Tenbrink, senior labor economist, said Kansas is keeping up with other states in the general national recovery."

Willis, what are you talking about? The general national unemployment as of may was 7.4%, while Kansas is 5.7% according to the article. How does that indicate we are keeping up with other states? Mostly it looks like most other states aren't keeping up with Kansas. California for instance is at 8.6%.
