the GOP-dominated Kansas legislature threw out Governor Brownback’s ruinous supply-side tax cuts. Even more humiliating for the governor, they overrode his veto!

Let me add a bit of info I learned last week thanks to NPR: of the 15 states with the highest average income, 3 of them - Alaska, Wyoming and North Dakota - are energy-resource extraction states. The rest? High-tax states. As someone (former SC Justice Hugo Black?) once said, taxes are how you pay for civilization. They’re also how you lay the groundwork for economic expansion and growth. If you still believe in tax cuts for the 1%, wake the fuck up.
