Kansas Gov. Brownback's Tax Cuts Would Favor Rich- Penalize Middle and Lower Income Earners

I had to read the story in the TOPEKA CAPITAL-JOURNAL twice- not believing what I read the FIRST time...




Republicrat Governor Brownback is proposing income tax cuts and using the elimination of "23 deductions" taken by taxpayers to pay for it.




According to the TC-J story- Brownback proposes:


A) A reduction of the top tax rate (for the wealthy) from "6.45 percent to 4.9 percent" (a reduction of 1.55 percent) while only reducing the very bottom tax rate from "3.5 percent to 3 percent" (a 0.5 percent decrease) and


B) Among deductions eliminated would be "the Adoption Credit, the Child Day Care Assistance Credit and the Earned Income Credit-"  most of which benefit middle and lower-income taxpayers.




So once again- the Republicrats favor the wealthy and to Hell with the middle and lower income Kansans.


Even less surprising to me- and I would bet a month's pay on this- is that Kansas voters will probably re-elect many of these Republicrats.




If I were Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz- I'd be purposely seeking a tornado specifically to whisk me away from the Sunflower State!
