NEWSFLASH!!! SUNFLOWER STATE BUDGET STILL NOT BALANCED: KANSAS TAX HIKE AGAINST GUV BROWNBACK DIDN'T WORK!!!

"Brownback’s fellow conservatives took note and a few quickly appropriated an anti-Trump hashtag on Twitter, #YouWereDuped."

Scamin' Sammy has done such a poor job running the government, no tax hike can fix it. It's a start though. You have to correct the mistake that started this mess before you can fix the problem.
