Saturday Column: Brownback must acknowledge error, alter course

We'll see what these jobs represent soon enough. The bottom line is, I have read no where that the revenue stream will increase enough to counterbalance the huge shortfall generated by Mr. Brownback's tax cuts for certain corporations and subchapter S corporations, Three credit downgrades already. This revenue shortfall will have to be addressed. We'll see how it is addressed soon , Mr. Crow.

Saturday Column: Brownback must acknowledge error, alter course

This is Mr. Simon's "coming to Jesus" moment. Several of us have written letters to the editor warning about the obvious shortfall coming. Unfortunately, Mr. Simons "moment" comes too late in the game. If he believes that Sam Brownback and his allies will change course in the middle of the stream he is sadly delusional. The day should be over for straight line party voting.

Letter: Medicare threat

This is a very good letter. Senior citizens should be aware that Brownback and the Kansas Republican legislature wants to use their Federal Medicare funds and choose private insurers to administrate the program ala KanCare which has been a disastrous program. Wake up, Kansans

Saturday Column: Former Dole director’s Rockefeller book praised

I am so looking forward to reading this book. I was a Rockefeller Republican in the 60s, living in San Francisco, and attended the historic 1964 Republican National Convention there. With dismay and anger I saw Rockefeller get booed off the stage by the angry young right wing Turks. At that seminal moment the Republican Party went astray. Witness what they've become. If Rockefeller were living today my guess is that he would be appalled at what has happened to his party. And Kansas in particular. Sadly, the voters so far have allowed us to suffer crippling education cuts, become the only state in the nation with no Arts funding, and his frankly stupid income tax cuts has already led us to three bond rating cuts by Moody's and S@P. One can only hope that November elections will start us in the right direction. I too applaud Mr. Simons for writing a positive article. The Dole Institute of Politics is a great institution and Richard Norton Smith a treasure.

Saturday Column: Kansas voters must consider candidates’ Obama ties

Really one must consider the source when he or she reads Mr. Simon's Sat articles.
This article was even posted on my Facebook page without my "liking it". However, the LJW
Is his paper and he will surely post his beliefs and has every right to do so. He has done so much for our community. Why he sullies his fine reputation with right wing articles is too bad.
I was a friend of Clyde Reed Jr. of the Parsons Sun and he was a Republican too. My father was his Labette County campaign chairman when he ran for Governor. However, in my opinion Clyde didn't go off base like the local publisher. Articles like that should be put on the editorial page.

Letter: Important election

Joe Douglas is right. This is the most important election in modern history. Vote to remove Sam Brownback and his devastating fiscal,education, and social policies from Kansas.

Kansas Democrats to fight back on Obamacare

Sorry, meant to post only one reply but inadvertently posted two very similar comments when I thought I was only editing the first. Suggested removal of the first comment. Don't hire me as an IT person for sure.
