To the editor:
One wonders how much of this inept Brownback administration he or she can take. It was predicted the state would be in dire financial straits after Brownback’s tax “experiment” was passed. Many of us with a basic business background knew what would happen. Voila!
First came the report of the $93 million shortfall in taxes. Then came the devastating Moody’s downgrade of Kansas bonds because there are not enough recurring tax measures to help balance the budget. The new general revenue fund profile shows a deficit of $1.26 billion within 5 years with more to come. All self-inflicted, folks, because of the Brownback income tax cuts.
PLEASE, fellow Kansans, vote for candidates, Democrats and Republicans, who are fiscally responsible. Otherwise, the shortfalls will be met by increased property taxes, sales taxes and various other fees. I guarantee it.
