Because of the tax cuts enacted in 2012 and 2013, Kansas faces a deficit that equals 17% of the entire state budget. What is their legislature doing about it? Jack shit. That’s because die-hard conservatives won’t roll back the cuts that are sending the state down the drain.
Someone told state legislators in Kansas that they were in danger of being taken over by Sharia law. Like that could happen in a legislature where Republicans hold a supermajority in both houses. But the Kansans got suckered good and have passed a law to ban Sharia in their state. Someone should tell them about the dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide.
In New York, they balance the state budget by running lotteries, as well as taxing casinos, liquor and cigarettes. The clever state fathers in Topeka are going even further and levying a new luxury tax on abortions and abortifacient medications.
Reminds me of the late 90’s when the Federal government owned the Mustang Ranch. Way to go Kansas!
