Kansas group urges end to income tax

A newly formed group is urging Kansas lawmakers to abolish the state income tax during the next legislative session.

Ashley McMillan is president of Kansans for No Income Tax. McMillan, who’s also the former executive director of the Kansas Republican Party, said in a news release Monday the group already has 200 members and hopes to sign up more than 2,000 by the end of the year.

A proposal during this year’s legislative session would have phased out the state income tax. Republican Gov. Sam Brownback is considering a tax overhaul package that is likely to reduce income tax rates for businesses and individuals.

Kansans for No Income Tax is planning a bus tour in November to build support for its cause.

That'd be great news for the folks who are breezing through the recession like it's not even happening, but here's a better idea for the 99%-- raise the income tax on incomes over $100,000, and lower or eliminate the sales tax on food, and give property tax relief to retired folks.

You're responding to my post, but deviously trying to hide it. This is a scandal that I may report. Or maybe I won't. I'll ponder your transgression throughout the day.

I thought the latest greatest sin amongst the poor was that 47% paid no tax at all? Now all of sudden it's a good idea to make that 100%?
