Brownback to lead river float trip

Don't drink the water Sam. Just a moment, on the other hand, drink all you want. Yea, it's good for you.

Kansas premiums lower than expected under new health insurance marketplaces, report says

So, as the facts come forward, it can be asked why do Republican Tea Party types object to these changes. Is it because they see this as a mandated requirement for ALL Americans? Is it because the costs are so high? Because it's the only thing the Republican Party can generate as an issue? Is it because the advertisement industry needs more opportunities for "disinformation"? (Remember the Death Panels?) Or, because it places some significant limits on the income of the health care insurance industry?

But, then...the Koch Brothers are putting more of their money back into the economy.

I believe that there will be hiccups in the application of Obamacare, but if Republicans can focus on appropriate modifications instead of trying to damn the entire law, the US will benefit.

Kansas' U.S. House delegation supports bill providing government funding but defunding health law

Not negotiating? ACA was negotiated with many, many amendments offered by Republicans. It was a Republican idea in the first place. How is it that Republican Tea Party radicals stake out a position that complete denial of funds is the only position they'll accept? The Administration has caved into their demands in the past and look where it has gotten them, to this stalemate. Cruz and his band of extremists won't accept anything more than 0% funding. No room to negotiate there.

So if negotiations is what you want, what's the compromise position that would be acceptable to you? See, there is none.

Kansas' U.S. House delegation supports bill providing government funding but defunding health law

Where's the "good law" that you speak of? When reasonable suggestions were offered by Republicans, they were accepted. In the end, Republicans still objected. Only Republican plan discussed was Ryan's "everyone a voucher" program, which has disappeared.

What are your specific problems with the law, IGWT? Or is it just that it was a Republican idea used by a Democratic President as the impetus for change. This law looks out for the individual American instead of the profits of the Health Care Insurance business.

FAIL because Governor failed to accept monies intended to set up exchanges for Kansans, developed by Kansans. That FAIL is tattooed across Brownback's forehead.

Education commissioner to respond to Kansas GOP resolution on Common Core standards

Bottom line is that the Republican hierarchy has no idea what the objections are, except it is "best" to follow what more radical right wingers want. Common core academics have been in place for at least 2 years in some districts. Where have the Tea Party radicals been?

The Republicans are letting the tail wag the dog of their party. They are surely alienating moderates and clear thinking Republicans from the party. Maintain Tea Party purification of the Republicans and their actions are going to improve America, but not in the way intended.
