I feel sorry for my friends who live in Kansas and have had to suffer under the rule of Gov. Sam Brownback. He’s basically gutted the state budget in the name of Tea Party fiscal purity.
The state began bleeding when the governor and his party stalwarts cut taxes to practically nothing and the expected resurrection of Ronald Reagan did not happen, defying the prophecy that he would magically shower the state with money. Of course they refused to implement anything to do with the evil federal government plans to socialize their healthcare.
But reality has arrived and now the state facing a massive budget deficit. And it seems that the only way to fix it is through Obamacare.
Ah, the freude is especially schaden today.
