Letter: Invest in education

August 12, 2014

To the editor:

The governor, in his re-election sermon, sanctifies his tax cuts because they provide access to our own money to invest. For many of us the question becomes: “Do I invest this recaptured capital in a nice shiny penny stock, a get rich scheme or perhaps some ramen noodles for dinner.”

Kansans would benefit most from a collective investment in quality education. I know the question will arise: “Who will pay for this socialist program?” The simple answer has to be “everyone.” Reinvestment compounds profits.

The governor needs to take some advice from his spiritual leader in Rome when he said money should be made to “serve” people not to “rule” them. Et cum spiritu tuo.

And now it has been discovered that he has been secretly strengthening the KPERS pension fund so that it remains solvent for our public employees thereby avoiding heavy fines from the SEC. Boy, the Koch brothers and ALEC aren't going to be happy when they hear about this.
