Over 10,000 people have left Kansas since Governor Brownback was elected. Would you want to move from a state if a radical conservative or liberal negatively impacted your state's quality of life?
Per-capita disposable income has increased by 10% under Brownback.
What is your source? He has cut government jobs; cut education, which has cost many jobs; Boing, our largest employer has left; and the new jobs he has assured us will flock to KS due to tax cuts, have not materialized.
Just Googled your quote. It appears to come from Brownback's campaign site. The guy is a compulsive liar and is destroying my state because he only works for the Koch Bros, not the people of Kansas.
Are the Koch brothers really that evil?
He has cut governmental jobs? If he was my governor, I would be proud of him.
Is a governor's job to serve the people of their state, or to sell themselves to the highest bidder? And yes, evil is the perfect descriptor for the Kochs.
Serve the people. How did he sell the people to the highest bidder? What does the Koch brothers have to do with anything?
And, Political, it was dishonest of you to quote a politician's own site as a source of "information". His site also told how much he's funded education, when he actually made the largest cut to it in state history.
I will say cutting education is not inherently bad. Of course, I do know the specific cuts. If the 10% number was inaccurate, please provide a source that claims otherwise.
He is implementing Koch policies that they've been pushing for decades. These are policies that simply benefit them in their billionaire buddies. They want to eliminate taxes privatize education and aluminate all public services.
I am a teacher, so I know first hand that these cuts actually are inherently bad. Public education has suffered immensely in the past several years due to these draconian cuts. Goal is to destroy educational quality, then privatize.
Yay for privatization!!! School choice! I have heard that he is for cutting taxes, not eliminating taxes. I don't see how that is linked to the Koch brothers. Sounds like every liberal wants to talk about the Koch Brothers.
That's because they are personally undermining our democracy by donating nearly unlimited funds and spreading lies and half-truths. They are a master manipulators and look out only for their own interests.
They? They being all politicians?
I was responding to your question about the Koch brothers.
Okay...so it's unconstitutional for them to donate money?
If you're really this innocent about the Koch brothers aims for America, I'd suggest doing some research. And I would focus on impartial sites.
I didn't say it was unconstitutional. You know fully well what the Supreme Court has ruled. If you're just going to "conservative talking points, I'm finished with this conversation.
I at first said yes but Tom Corbett blows and I'm still here.
Brownback is awful, but I still live in Kansas :)
If I had kids in a state where education funding had been slashed dramatically then yes, we are definitely moving.
This is something my wife & I have been thinking about for a while. We'd just like to experience life in a state where we could assume we share values with many of our neighbors and the quality of life those values would foster.
KS has been feeling really oppressive lately.
Where would you want to move?
We've looked at Washington, Oregon and Vermont. No decisions so far. There's also nearby Lawrence, KS, a blue island in a sea of red.
We visited Vermont this August and it was beautiful. It's one of the states we would consider moving to.
Yes, it's supposed to get very cold though. But, since you live in Michigan, I guess that's not an issue for you.
I don't have the numbers, but this is a huge increase from the previous rate.
Are you sure it's the governor? Kansas wouldn't be in my top ten places to live. I'm from the mid west and many of my old friends from there leave to states with better weather and scenery.
Yes. That is why the federal government has limited powers ( not supposed to do the duties of the state). If you don't like how your state does things, people will move to the states that do. Free market baby
No. I'd be moving constantly.
