Kansas misses August revenue estimates by about $10 million

Kansas misses August revenue estimates by about $10 million
Staff and wire reports SEPTEMBER 1, 2016 4:12 PM

Kansas missed revenue estimates for August by more than $10 million.

The state fell 2.3 percent below estimates for the month overall.

It was the fourth straight month that Kansas has failed to hit its revenue projections. Tax collections have fallen short 10 of the past 12 months.

Kansas has struggled to balance its budget since GOP legislators heeded Brownback’s call to slash personal income taxes in 2012 and 2013 as an economic stimulus. On Thursday, an economist with the Washington-based Tax Foundation told Mississippi lawmakers evaluating planned tax cuts that Kansas is “an example of what not to do in tax reform.”

2. Well that figures huh?

 

Bush 1 called it voodoo economics way way back in the day and these crooked damn Republicans are still pushing the same old snake oil BS that has been proven time and time again to fail EVERY TIME!!!!

This is what happens when your government is on republicans! (so to speak)

5. And sadly there are voters that still believe this propaganda. I really think we have a fair number

of voters dumber than a bag of rocks for all types of reasons.

4. I haven't a clue how this fits

 

But most of the state of Kansas is in a labor crunch...entry level jobs through skilled labor are getting very difficult to fill. Healthcare workers are extremely difficult here (perhaps everywhere). Unskilledģentry level....dining, housekeeping, grounds, maintenance etc jobs with decent starting pay including insurance and other benefits are sorely lacking....I am part of a statewide non-profit healthcare alliance and staffing is a conversation at every meeting...this problem isn't localized.

9. Interesting! It seems I read someplace recently, probably DU, that KS was sometimes

stopping CO cars for searches.

10. They do...they are cautious about stopping ks residents who may be

 

Going to CO for meds...they are already about to lose medical here (meaning it is about to pass) they don't want to add another log to that fire. Last year Sedgwick county (Wichita) passed a city ordnance to decriminalize, state law overruled...but it is a movement in KS...

I know a lot of people who have left the state in the last 2 years, almost all moved to CO...

11. It's not trickling down from the job creators???

What a surprise.

You kill off the middle class, and there's no one to pay the revenue. The rich have it rigged so they won't pay. The poor can't.

Huge surprise: No one's paying taxes.
