To the editor:
Let’s see now: Brownback and his boys in the Legislature eliminated taxes for small business and on income tax at all levels, so that means less tax revenue for education.
The governor and his administration don’t want or can’t compete for federal grant dollars under the new “Run to the Top” federal grant program that replaces No Child Left Behind to help support education in this state, so no tax dollars there for education.
That means if we want to support our educational system in Kansas, your property taxes will need to increase proportionally to meet our educational needs. Therefore, Brownback and the Legislature have in fact raised your taxes in the long run.
Isn’t that interesting?
