Well the private sector had to sacrifice. Time for the government to sacrifice. As a Kansas taxpayer I expect deeeeeep cuts to payroll and benis. Let's see if Grandma knows how to balance a budget with decreased income.

We could have had a HUGE surplus. A nice cushion. But Brownback decided not to tax a single business in Kansas. He called it "his experiment".

Brownback isn't our governor dipshit. Grandma ownes it now. Real leaders don't blame their predecessors. They navigate the rough water and get through like a BOSS.
