Kansas’ Terrible Economy

Until Sam Brownback became the governor of Kansas, the repressive, Chicago School of economics of unfettered capitalism had only been tried (by tried I mean forced) in place like Latin America, South Africa, Russia, Poland and countless other places around the globe.  Without fail these policies have not only had a ruinous effect on those economies but led directly to the deaths of millions of people.  While I don’t anticipate huge loss of life in Kansas, the effects of supply side economics is leading the state of Kansas down the road to financial ruin.

Hopefully Democrats are paying attention and in future campaigns when Republicans trot out the same tired old line that we must cut taxes on the “job creators” they will point to Kansas and simply say “show me the jobs!”
