Brownback Casts Blame on Legislature for Budget Shortfall
Under the bus goes the legislature.
Gov. Sam Brownback appeared to distance himself from the budget impacts of tax cuts he signed into law two years ago when he spoke to members of the Topeka business community.
Of course he was singing a different tune a couple of years ago.
“My faith is in the people of Kansas, not the government’s ability to tax and redistribute,” Brownback said on the day he signed the first round of tax cuts in May 2012. “Today’s legislation will create tens of thousands of new jobs and help make Kansas the best place in America to start and grow a small business.”
Like conservatism in general, trickle down economics can never fail, it can only be failed.
