Letter: Against Brownback

November 3, 2012

Advertisement

To the editor:

In regard to “Other Choices” (Journal-World, Nov. 2), the issue in this election is not about being effective in the Republican Party. The Republican Party is the Sam Brownback Party and Sam allows no dissent to his agenda.

The real issue is: Will candidates stand up for voters against the Brownback-Chamber of Commerce-Koch Industries machine. Have they and will they continue to oppose Brownback’s defunding of public schools, his shifting tax increases to property tax payers, and his giving tax breaks to the wealthy and Koch Industries at the expense of the middle class and the disadvantaged.

A vote for Democratic candidates is a vote for the people against Brownback. It’s as simple as that!

i believe the uneployment went up under obama because the companies saw what was coming with this terrible president and they adjusted their workforce if you continue to raise the minimum wage the employers will adjust their workforce more so cait believes that obama is not to be blamed for anything funny but not surprising

more money doesn't automatically mean better schools, just look at KCMO's unaccreditted schools!

and no, national unemployment is back up. furthermore, it is "down" because of two anomolies: vast increase in inadequate part time employment and in people withdrawing from the labor force. these are not the way you want your unemployment to go down ad americans know it.

kansans know we are fortunate to live under this admin, lower unemployment, lower taxes, lower cost of living than most of the country. we are better off, no thanks to the temporary occupant of the whitehouse.

Governor Brownshirt and his ilk are an embarrassment. Kansas is looked upon by the rest of the country as a joke. He'd like to save all the school funding by having everyone homeschooled. If somebody doesn't curb the trend by right-wing conservatives to home school their offspring, we're going to have a generation of ignorant poorly educated zombies that will be even more embarrassing.

There's no school defunding. Taxpayer funding of schools has risen every year. Look it up. Also, if you don't like the budget, blame the Kansas Senate. They're the geniuses who put it together and passed it and sent it to Brownback for approval. He even gave them a second chance and they wouldn't take it. Happily, at least nine of them won't be back.

Kansas has deficits all the time. How do you think we remodeled the Capital Building. We fiananced it. Over $5 hundred milliion. How do you think we build new roads. We finance them. This is all deficit spending.

The only reason we claim to not have deficits, is because, the general operarting fund can't have deificts. The way Kansas budgets and the federal government budgets is compelety different.

This letter to the editor seems to have come from the archives of the 1960's, radicalism and raging against society. Sorry but the world has moved on to reasoned adults making the decisions now...Vote Republican for responsible government.

Isn't our unemployment about the same as the national rate? The only reason we don't have a deficit is because we can't have a deficit. Statutory requirements and all.

This has nothing to do with the president.

IF Kansas had high unemployment. IF Kansas had a massive defecit. IF Kansas had a lack of leadership you would possibly have an arguement. Your rant would be better suited for Barry
