Take a tea party governor like Sam Brownbeck -- a republican majority, mix together - and you get crazy - enough crazy to effect the state of Kansas
for many years to come.
the act dramatically changes the Kansas tax system, shifting the income tax burden from the wealthy and prosperous to working people. The act provides
that all income of business owners is tax-free (except in the unusual case where a regular corporation is used). Although the act was promoted as a
boost to small business, there is no limit on the size of business that can be exempt from tax.
The new income tax will be dramatically regressive. Low- and moderate-income workers will remain on the tax rolls. Meanwhile, wealthy Kansans will
readily escape the tax, and many prosperous (but not wealthy) Kansans will be able to evade the tax as well. Beginning in 2013, the Kansas tax system
will be among the most regressive in the nation.
Essentially if you have the money to establish a trust - you are going to get off, state tax free. If you are just a working schmuck, step right up
and pay your taxes, if you are even a little wealthy - thank your poorer neighbors for paying your way.
How do you pay for this inequity -- why cut programs - the safety net - education - infrastructure.
Brownback wants to be the Governor of Somalia, with secure gated enclaves. This will become a right wing Mecca, a model for how it is
