This Is The Matter with Kansas. Increased taxes on the poor; Privilege$$$$$ for Brownback

That creates a grand total of $250,000 in spending on your dime that Brownback won't explain. KCTV5 did eventually get a statement from the governor's office, touting Brownback's efforts to slash expenses by cutting staff and general spending. The governor's office did operate on $7 million fewer dollars last year. But there was never an explanation for the discretionary spending.

So, the poorest 20 percent of Kansans get a tax hike, and a bunch of office assistants at the state capitol get fired, but the sous-chef's job is safe at the governor's mansion. Lovely.

2. Welcome to Kochtopia, aka Brownbackistan

Before the Civil War, it was called "Bleeding Kansas". Now I think we could calling "Hemorrhaging Kansas", and it's hemorrhaging intelligence and sanity.
