Mussolini deregulated all Italian industry ... then he privatized everything the government owned.
It was the PATH to fascism it's exactly what the republican party wants.

If the legislature decides to privatize many of the state services a 24/7 audit will be required to counteract fraud.

--- “What I got from the Legislature was a naked tax cut with none of the pay-fors,” Brownback said. “I took it because it was the best we were going to get.”

Some would call that galling.

Kansas GOP sets caucus date, gears up for 2016

Standard & Poor’s on Wednesday morning reduced the state’s credit rating a notch to AA from AA+, citing a structural imbalance between revenues and spending in the state’s budget.

The bond rating agency said the state’s failure to match the income tax cuts with reductions in spending will leave the state with dangerously low reserves.

Analysts projected that the state could burn through its reserves this fiscal year, putting more pressure on lawmakers to cut the budget.

In May, Moody’s Investors Service cited similar concerns when it reduced the state’s bond rating one level because of mounting financial pressure on the Kansas state budget, partly because of the income tax cuts.

But Moody’s warned that cutting spending might not be easy given the court-ordered spending on schools, keeping up with Medicaid demands and funding pensions.

Reagan/Bush brought in the home loan scandals in which Bush/Cheney followed up with their scandal. Sensible and practical economics is NOT a strong point the conservatives bring to the table.

" budget director, would take on the additional role of identifying and implementing “efficiencies” on an ongoing basis throughout the year."

This has been the policy since the Brownback administration took office. Which has taken Kansas down the tubes and cost wayyyyyyyyyy to many state workers their jobs which is
fiscal irresponsibility. ALEC still dictating to Kansas conservatives.

More people die every day from alcoholism, war, auto accidents,domestic violence,cancer and suicides than from any foreign sources.

Think about the hundreds of thousands of innocent muslim family members which have died as a result of the war for oil control being waged by the "west". AGAINST the wishes of the lions share of the USA population.
