Kansas Comes Up MILLIONS Short Again

Testament to economic theories at work in the Sunflower State: "Kansas collected $217 million less in taxes than it expected in May, but officials in Gov. Sam Brownback's administration says it's the result of a temporary problem."

TKC Fact Check . . . The economic factor that nobody is taking into account here is that . . . It's Kansas. Tax free is nice but bringing biz to LITERALLY the middle-of-nowhere depends on more than discounts.

Brownback will still walk away with the election.
He will say, "abortion", "gay marriage" and "immigrants" and Kansans will heed the dog whistle.

Idiots!! All the way to the poor house.

So the story is, 217 million dollars is in the taxpayers hands and not the government's hands?

5:57 how is that good? The state's credit rating is somewhere lower than those who use payday loans. Hundreds of disabled are dying for lack of medical care, no expansion of medicaid which would have resulted in the expansion of medical jobs, high paying ones. At one time Kansas had a decent education reputation, now we are right there with Mississippi and such, low graduation, high drop out, heavy meth style drug use in the hinterlands. Smart kids with no future in hate state leave, and the hinterlands are dying as a result of the hate.

Like the Tony said you can't have a state of hate and expect less than a 6% income increase to get normal folks to move to hate world.

You can have your money and live in shit, much like a pig

Now wait a minute. Last month they blamed Obama for the shortfall. This despite the fact Obama has been in office the previous six years. Now it's something called a "temporary problem." That is all bullshit however the first poster is right. The low-information voters in this state will probably vote Browndouche back in.

Maybe Rex, David and Charles will step up and write checks to cover the shortfall.
