Taxing needy families' food while dishing out tax abatements to rich developers is obscene. We need economic development for the poor!

Why stop with Charlie Rose? Dig into some of KU's past chancellors, whose names now grace university buildings.

Do you know how many heath insurance companies operate in the U.S.? Wikipedia has a complete list. These companies are the middlemen, brokering health insurance and profiting enormously. Look up the compensation executives in the companies receive. Then think about who the pigs at the trough really are. Hint: it isn't the poor guys who cannot afford to buy health insurance without government assistance.

I believe that Medicare is the only force holding health care costs down. For example, for cataract surgery on one eye, my doctor billed $2,000. Medicare approved and paid 80% of $500. The hospital and anesthesiologist billed and were paid in a similar fashion.
This and other experiences lead me to believe that Medicare for all would be the best possible health care solution for this nation.

Don't forget his lying about the purpose of a building he constructed in Douglas County. As I recall, he claimed it was only for agricultural purposes when in fact it was constructed as a dwelling.

In Arizona the medical marijuana law also requires that all the marijuana sold must be grown in Arizona. Such a provision provision might help Kansas agriculture make a rebound.

Wait a minute, Mr. Brownback, please explain why retirees, teachers, policemen, and other salaried or hourly workers should go on bearing the burden of income taxes while lawyers, doctors, farmers, and business owners pay nothing. We are resentful and some of us are considering moving to a state where everyone pays their share to support schools, highways, and other amenities that we all enjoy.

Good lord, they're abolishing science support and opting instead to encourage a tourist attraction that is destined to fail.

Dorothy's comment is relevant to your statement. If our elected leader sets the example of stiffing contractors, that gives others license to do the same.
