The latest data from the Kansas Legislative Research Department paint a dire picture for the state budget — a dire picture awash in red ink.
Sam Brownback’s irresponsible tax policy will drive the state budget deeper and sooner into deficits, forcing massive cuts to core services — easily surpassing $1 billion in five years.
And that’s on top of already historic cuts Brownback has made to school funding.
When will Gov. Brownback take responsibility for the financial disaster he’s created for Kansans — and quit blaming others? Sam Brownback is the governor of Kansas, and Sam Brownback is the one who has gotten us into this mess.
Kansans can't afford excuses for the failure of the governor’s experiment. We need good jobs, good schools, and good leadership with the right priorities.
