Brownback's approval rating is sitting at 37% right now. Is there any chance that he might actually lose his reelection campaign? I'm thinking probably not.

Even worse are the left and right leaning "scientists" that vie for government grants.

It's been a rough couple months.  Obama's 2nd term is driving our people to be crazier than they normally are.

Businesses making decisions for tax reasons isn't some new concept.

I do like that GTM, which outside of a couple retail locations, is entirely based in MHK and was supposedly going to build a new plant in Texas despite having excess capacity in Manhattan already.

In the entire thought process, Kansas' tax rate might have been as high as 143 on the list of things considered.

Also amusing that the best example is something that created 600 minimum-wage jobs that will likely be allocated to part-time employees.

Think of all that tax revenue Kansas is going to generate off of those 600 minimum-wage jobs, though . . .

It seemed to me that Brownback's main goal was to steal more businesses from MO.  I don't think that has happened so far, but with it only being in effect a couple months, it is still pretty early for that.

I can see how the pass through model of business can be an incentive to some, but I don't think they should pay nothing.. At least give them .5% or something. They should contribute like the rest of us.

The money will either go back into the business to expand or be taxed as income by someone.

The same paper that did the poll that said SB approval rating was 37% is the same that published the income tax reduction was going to cause a billion plus dollar deficit.  Both stats are horrificly inaccurate.  Whether you like him or not, he will win in a landslide and the state with have a surplus.  Liberals will continue to do petty and moronic things like publish the Obituary for the State of Kansas and further diminish their already trite and existence in this state.

The poll wasn't conducted by a newspaper. It was done by Public Policy Polling, based out of North Carolina. I believe it. Brownback is really unpopular. He will still win, though, because he's not unpopular enough to lose to a democrat.

You know why you shouldn't? That poll is beyond stale and has been conducted who knows how many times since, yet the same brownback heaters keep citing it.

Or not.  Trickle down isn't always guaranteed.  Just look at the last 30 years for proof. 

Every able working adult should chip in to keep the state of Kansas functioning.

I'm not even sure exactly what that emoticon means but most Americans, at least the ones with a little education, would know that tax cuts haven't resulted into substantial growth or jobs.

The only trickle down we have gotten has puddled into overseas manufacturing and Cayman bank accounts. 

You know this.
