What’s the Matter with Brownback?

You really have to hand it to the tax-cutters for doggedness; no matter how many times it fails, they never waver from their chosen strategy. Why should they, when it brings in so much cash?

Perhaps you read about Sam Brownback’s brilliant idea to get people to move to the rural parts of Kansas. If not, it’s a hoot, so check it out. Basically the rural counties in the state have been losing population, some rapidly. Now that he’s governor, Sam figures to bolster the count by offering tax breaks to people who move there. This is only state tax, of course, which averages about $1,800 per Kansan. But if $1,800 for five years isn’t quite enough to move you to the Kansas outback, wait, there’s more! How about if we pay up to 20% of your student loan, maxing out at $15,000? Then what would you say to living in Colby, which seems to be the largest settlement in the specified 50 counties? After all, jobs may be hard to find, but housing is cheap! The weather is less than optimal, but you won’t pay state taxes for the first five years. Think of everything you could do with that $9K — trips to New York, San Francisco, Hawaii, anywhere…

And the beauty part is you get to have Brownback as your senator!
