Brownback and The Family

How can someone claim to follow Jesus yet not support programs that fight poverty and benefit the needy?

This is a question directed at Sam Brownback, and a possible answer is provided in Jeff Sharlet’s book, The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power (Harper Perennial, 2008). Journalist Sharlet describes in detail the history, leadership and beliefs of this secret organization of which Brownback is a member.

Editorial: System failure

Guess how much Kansas and brownback have left off the table by not expainding Medicaid since January 1st 2014?

$881,221,983.20 million dollars

Kansans pay taxes and expect something back in return. Like health care and financial security.

Our state's leadership has chosen not to accept federal funds to expand the Medicaid program. Instead, our federal tax dollars are going to states like California and New York to provide health insurance coverage to their residents

Meanwhile, as many as 150,000 hard working Kansans remain uninsured. We should bring these funds back into the state to support the Kansas people and the Kansas economy. Tell the governor and your legislators to expand Medicaid now

Editorial: Welfare claims

Is there anyone in Kansas brave enough to ask Brownback, on camera or tape, face-to-face, how even one person could live on $5,562 a year, much less a family?

I want to see him struggle for an answer.

Governor Brownback, is there any year in your entire life that you had to live on no more than $5,562?

And if you did, do you remember your governor talking as if you were a free-loader and somehow not worthy of help?

Did your governor beat his chest and brag about how he'd kicked you off welfare and LOOK how great you're doing? on $5,562 a year?

That's $107 a week. About $428 a month.

The poorest person I know in Kansas pays about $500 a month for a small house. That doesn't include water and power. Doesn't include garbage pickup. No clothing for the child. No gas for the vehicle. No property tax and insurance on the vehicle. No toothpaste or toilet paper. No shampoo or soap. No food.

But Sam has a happiness about him now that he's pushed the most vulnerable people in Kansas into that situation. One can almost see and hear how heart-happy he is to know he's done that.
