Gov. Brownback to speak about economic growth, Kansas tax policy at KU on Sept. 10

August 10, 2012


Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is scheduled to speak on economic growth and Kansas tax policy next month at Kansas University.

Brownback will deliver the KU School of Business 2012 Anderson Chandler Lecture at 7 p.m. Sept. 10 at the Lied Center.

Brownback has been governor since 2011, and has also served as a U.S. senator, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives and a state secretary of agriculture.

During the past legislative session, Brownback signed into law a series of tax cuts that drew praise from conservatives but rankled critics, who said the cuts would devastate state government.

Maybe he can explain how eliminating state jobs and school jobs helps our economy.

Maybe he can demand accountability from the so called job creators that just got tax cuts but have as of yet failed to create any new jobs. In fact, several firms (e.g., Freight Quote) have left Kansas since the tax cuts were passed during the last legislative session.

"Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is scheduled to speak on economic growth"

Will he also talk about the collapse of state and local government that he set into motion?

What will be missing is substance and hard evidence. Reaganomics has been proven to be hollow and wreckanomics.

If tax cuts were a job creator nobody in America would be making less than 17.50 per hour as we speak and unemployment would be at 2%.

Tax cuts = economic failure for Kansas and the USA.

Because of tax cut Reaganomics mixed with reckless loans a four year degree is no quite enough. Having two or three sources of income is not a bad idea. Why? There are at least 6 reasons to keep in mind.

  1. Mergers
  2. Hostile Takeovers
  3. Leveraged Buyouts
  4. Free Trade Agreements
  5. Reagan/Bush Savings and Loan home loan scandal which killed the economy and cost the USA millions of jobs.
  6. Bush/Cheney Home Loan scandal killed the economy and cost the USA millions of jobs

All of above Republican economics ultimately translate into millions upon millions upon millions of USA job losses. Big time layoffs are the end result. These jobs go abroad with tax codes that prevent taxation on profits made abroad from USA big name corporations.

There was a time when becoming employed by corporate America came with long term employment, fine wages and dependable retirement benefits. Those days are gone.

This was not because USA industry was in dire straights. It was a direct result of reckless economics supported by questionable loans through the big banking industry in some form. I say USA employment exodus began with the introduction of Reaganomics.

During this same 33 year period millions upon millions more jobs were lost to fraud of sorts in the home loan industry which effectively ruined the economy twice in a 30 year period.

This is what Kansas and the USA gets when republicans are in power.

Will he talk about all the handouts he personally receives as a farmer?
