To the editor:
The Republican-controlled Kansas Legislature is always paying lip service to their fiscal prowess and responsibility. Granted, they are outstanding in their ability to withhold even modest pay raises, let alone cost-of-living allowances to the state employees, whom they love to flog whenever they think it is politically expedient. But where does their responsibility lie when we discover that they have not been properly funding state employees’ retirement funds? Thousands of people who have served the people of Kansas faithfully only to find out that what the state of Kansas promised in exchange for their years of service isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.
Indeed, what is the matter with Kansas when Kansans continually elect such miscreants?
