Last Call For Brownbacked Into A Corner

Well Kansas, Gov. Sam Brownback cut taxes to the point where Kansas can no longer afford to provide basic services and surprise!  Tax cuts didn't magically create jobs or growth, and the state's budget is a complete wreck.

But Kansas, you re-elected the guy last month because that'll show Obummer and those liberals what for, right?  Well guess what?  Now, the other shoe falls as those basic services are cut even more.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) on Tuesday unveiled his plan to solve his state's serious financial woes: dramatic budget cuts to state agencies by 4 percent and move $201 million from specific funds to Kansas's general funds.

Those actions, according to the Kansas City Star, will open up $280 million Kansas can use to fill its budget deficit, which analysts projected to be about $279 million by the end of June 2015.

According to Reuters, $201.5 million would be taken from other funds and moved to the general fund and $78.5 million will be saved by cutting as much as $40.7 million from Kansas state contributions to the retirement system for public employees.

So 4% cuts across the board to everything, and gotta punish those state employees some more, because we all know they're nothing but mooching scumbags.

Hey, I wonder how many state employees voted for Brownback to take money out of their pockets.

Oh well.  Cut off you nose to spite your state, right?
