Gov. Sam Brownback blames his draconian tax cuts and budget deficits on the state legislature. No, really.
“I proposed a flat tax with a small budget accelerator,” Brownback said Friday during an address to the Great Topeka Chamber of Commerce, according to The Topeka Capital-Journal. “What I got from the Legislature was a naked tax cut with none of the pay-fors.”
Brownback added that he “took it because it was the best we were going to get.”
Yes, apparently they held a gun to his head and said either his brains or his signature would be on the bill. What choice did he have?
