Is Kansas SecState Kobach Green With Envy Over Colorado Weed Economy?!?!?
Former Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer is a Democratic nominee who wants to legalize marijuana in Kansas by way of a statewide ballot measure.
Meanwhile . . .
Check this money quote from the leading right-wing candidate demanding slash & burn tactics for the Kansas budget in order to find balance:
Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state and a rival of Colyer for the GOP gubernatorial nomination, said the Legislature had kicked around several unsettling funding ideas. It would presumably be paid for by gobbling up another $100 million in highway funding, imposing a tax on internet sales, undercutting payments to the state pension system and absorbing the windfall in state tax revenue resulting for recent changes in the federal tax code, he said.
“The supposed ability to do this without a tax increase makes all kinds of ridiculous assumptions,” Kobach said. “That is unacceptable. We need to cut taxes. Purple, pot-smoking Colorado has a better tax environment than red Kansas does. This is crazy.”
You decide . . .
