Kansas legislator introduces bill prompted by concerns over 'honor killings'

Anyone out there remember HUAC and the laws proposed to "protect" America from the Red Menace? Any of them still on the books? OMG! What! They're no longer on the books?!?!? You mean we let our guard down and we're now unprotected? Lord have mercy.

Statehouse Live: Kansas House budget committee approves proposal to cut state employees' pay by 7.5 percent

Having worked in the private sector as a consultant to State governments for nearly my entire career I have seen the following happen over and over again:

1.) State cuts worker salaries across the board

2.) Those workers who joined for public service reasons who are highly skilled (like IT, architect, legal, professional services, etc.) bolt since the pay is now so grossly below private sector wages

3.) State has obligations to meet so bids for outsourcing of services (and Republicans have a happy accident in their pants)

4.) Bids come in much higher than anticipated but what can the State do? They have obligations.

5.) State spends more money than before on services that used to be performed in-house.

Look, if your a Republican, at least be honest and state that your goal is to put more jobs in the private sector. Don't for a minute pretend that this will really save money in the long run. State workers are NOT overpaid by any stretch of the imagination.
