Ignore Sam Brownback’s latest empty excuses for Kansas budget woes

Letter: What’s the matter with Kansas (continued)

The Leavenworth Times, June 19
“… Brownback’s actions are pushing state obligations to the local level and moving the state and local tax burden from wealthy income taxpayers onto local property taxpayers.”
KANSANS CAN’T AFFORD EXCUSES FOR WHY THE GOVERNOR’S EXPERIMENT HAS FAILED. WE NEED GOOD LEADERSHIP, GOOD JOBS, AND GOOD SCHOOLS.
