Letter to the editor: Not affordable

You need to check into non-profits. Just because they are listed as "non-profit", does not mean their are no profits to be made. Go do your research on CEO pay over the last 10 years at your 60 largest health insurance companies. Then spittle out to me about non-profits in the health care field. The non-profit status is strictly so taxes don't have to be paid.

The problem is having a FOR PROFIT healthcare industry in the United States. It is not Obama's fault.

Kansas budget director had access to state email, instead used personal account for policy work

The problem has nothing to do with the way he sent the information. The problem is, lobbyists shouldn't be included in the budget writing process. It shouldn't have to pass a lobbyist approval before moving forward. Who's writing the damn budget, the man paid to do it, or the lobbyists bribing the man who's already getting paid to do it?!?!?!??!?!

Lawrence commissioners voice support for tax break to expand Eldridge Hotel

Hasn't Brownback already given the Eldridge and every other business in the State of KS a big enough tax break already???? They don't have to pay taxes. Why give them more of a break?!?!?!?

Kansas unemployment rate increases for third straight month

I guess all those newly unemployed Kansan's can pay the corporations share of income taxes which Brownback passed off as one of the best tax plans in the US. Kansans now pay the 6th highest tax rate in the Nation. Pitiful to say the least.

Editorial: The right person

Even more troubling, the above-mentioned situations illustrate the unwillingness of Obama and his senior aides to be open and honest with the American public. Once a person does not tell the truth or tries to rely on half-truths, how can an individual ever have confidence in that person and believe he is telling the truth on other matters?

Dolph - you can't see the forest before the trees. Did you just answer your own question? Start off with Romney hiding his tax returns from the Americans he so desperately wants to govern. What's he hiding from the get go? Half truths???? Lord Romney doesn't even have those!

Developers of hotel at 900 N.H. seeking financial incentives from city

If Doug Compton can't afford all the expenses necessary to complete the project, then why do my taxes help him cover the costs? Frankly, Doug Compton has never helped me pay for things I can't afford so I see no reason to help him out. Somehow, some way these incentives have to come to a halt.

Developer requesting city assistance to build apartment building, art studios in east Lawrence

If the city wants to GIVE this guy $750,000 in incentives, why not support the local SRS office and help thousands of people instead of just putting the money in the pocket of one man?

Developer requesting city assistance to build apartment building, art studios in east Lawrence

Ok, how about no more handouts to the RICH. Brownback and every other republican wants to put the kabosh on big government, no more taxes, and handing out to the poor. So why are the middle class taxpayers asked to continue to handout to the rich?!??! If you want to build the project, do it with your funds.
