Tax plans coming together, but business owners' taxes still a hot issue

Nope. Got a scholarship to a liberal arts college. You would not have liked it there. Too many critically complex folks.

Andy, my answer is too critically complex for a simpleton to grasp,

Haskell suspends football program, possibly others, to cut costs

You may have "spoken" with Russell Means, but, he, Dennis Banks, and my parents were having a good time in our living room on Ohio Street while I was trying to study for a high school chemistry test back in the early seventies. My late father worked closely with the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation to recover St. Mary's College from the Jesuits, which sat on land that had been stolen from their people in the 19th century. I have probably forgotten more about Native American culture and history over the years than you would ever hope to know. He also produced and directed a feature documentary film on the Potawatomis with a graduate KU film student. I assisted with some of the editing.

My father was made an honorary member of AIM, allegedly the only white man who was ever issued a AIM card.

Try your "I spoke and met with Russell Means" on someone else.

We, as Americans, who have screwed Native Americans for 200 plus years, have an obligation to suppport Native American culture. The onus should not be on a small Native American Nation with a few thousand members.

The white culture has a 200 plus year history of treating Native Americans miserably. Thankfully, we don't massacre them anymore. If they want football., or any other sport, at their flagship University, they should have it. The lack of funding by the BIA is shameful .

Kate, you are looking in the wrong direction. Many of the folks hell bent on bankrupting our former great state are hoping to ride the tax plan all the way to heaven.

But for the collection of income taxes, the idiots wearing those shirts would have had no roads to travel upon to the State Capital to get their pictures in the newspaper.

Sorry. Andy but it takes a complex mind to understand my answer to your question, so I won't waste my time.

The headline "Tax Plans Coming Together" is a wee bit of an exaggeration.
The tax on guaranteed payments will raise 23 million. Add another 82 millon for reimposing some of the business taxes which were cut, and we are barely over 100 mil. Still almost 400 mil short.

The boys and girls in the State House need to brush up on their math.
