To the editor:
Instead of the governor lowering or eliminating income and corporate taxes, why not first eliminate sales taxes on food or reduce the sales tax back to where it was before the extra 1 percent was added “temporarily” to reduce the state debt?
Can any of my Republican friends show me a time when trickle-down economics created jobs? Right now, the effective tax rate on the rich and large corporations is the lowest it’s been in 50 years. Why don’t we have jobs coming out of our ears?
I’m sorry to say the policies of Sam Brownback seem to me heartless and look like favoritism for the rich and powerful. I wish our state government could be looking out for the welfare of all the citizens of Kansas.
