Why It's Probably Best Not to be in Kansas Anymore

First of all, voters re-elected a loony ideologue.

And it appears that too many residents bought into Brownback's tax-cuts misinformation.

Sam Brownback’s $1.1 billion tax-cut blunder slams into Kansans.  (Kansas City Star, 12/10/2014)
There will be more victims as the governor and the Kansas Legislature are forced to slash the state budget by hundreds of millions more in coming months, just to make sure the state doesn’t run a deficit in 2015 or 2016.

The income tax cuts backed by the governor and the Republican-dominated Legislature are now hurting real Kansans. Revenues are likely to an astounding $1.1 billion short of predicted expenses in the next 18 months.

Ignore Brownback’s “sun is shining on Kansas” mantra, the one that incredibly helped get him re-elected last month.

Beautiful weather, according to the Kansas Governor.

All sorts of curse words come to mind. My in-laws were not surprised when Brownback was re-elected. They could not understand why anyone would vote for the [another curse word] after so much evidence of his failures.
