    How has Kansas economy affected you and your family? That seems to be the problem with liberals they are experts on everyone else but not their own community and community politics.

    I think it’s too early to tell if the Kansas experiment was a failure. It may be that the tax cuts have not been given enough time, because tax changes rarely have immediate consequences at the state level. I have often pointed out that tax increases almost never harm the economy in the short run. Neither businesses nor people move immediately after a tax increase. Corporations don’t sell their plants and equipment and move their workforce on short notice. And people don’t sell their houses, quit their country clubs, or take their kids out of school because the income tax rate goes up. I believe that increasing tax burdens harms economic development in the long run — it doesn’t happen overnight.

    The OP opens a discussion on president Obama's decision to go to war with congress. to address that, Obama's losers change the subject to one about Kansas and "red states."

    Now, unless the state legislature of Kansas is at war with the governor and decades old problems are not being addressed, how in the name of deliberate obfuscation is this even ****ing relevant?

    Obama's decision to go to war with congress is no surprise if one remembers the fact that the congressional majority has been at war with Obama for about 7 years.

    So we have a Constitutional Scholar who doesn't understand that he isn't king? Congress makes the laws, not the executive Branch. Can you imagine the outrage if GW Bush took this attitude and was as arrogant as to not meet with Congress or to dictate to Congress? Just goes to show how poor of an executive he is and just how incompetent throwing a tantrum when he doesn't get his way. So much for negotiation


    Oh, this is why I love American politics. The **** here is boring by comparison, there is so little drama...,

    The American people went to the polls just two-and-a-half months ago and collectively rejected Obama's policies and actions. They looked at the on going blame game and sided with Republicans as the good guys, and Obama the one who is holding things up.

    Instead of what would be obvious to a college student, Obama vows more war.

    That doesn't happen anywhere else. Hell even the Italian and Greek parliaments figured out a way to work together....and in Canada, when a party gets rejected, they have the humility to stfu for awhile and get along.

    But not Washington. While 41,600 Mexicans illegally flood into the US per month, Obama figures more fighting is best for the country. While he actively embraced and promised fast-tracking of the finalization of Keystone phase three, across some of the most endangered wet lands, he is now holding up phase 4 for environmental reasons...and on and on and on as the US citizenry wage their own, propaganda based war of words, the same positions being taken on the same topics over and over and over.

    And, sadly, the progressives never alter from the White House meme, no matter how much it may do the 180 dance, while the right at least sees the problem, but sadly too often apply the wrong solutions.

    Now, what happens when you erase the wrong solutions thingy, and compromise based on reality, not Obama's phantasy world. I guess that's what they call progress, something American "progressives" fear and loath......

    It's like this massive and costly day time soap opera, where nothing is real except deception, nothing is reliable except dishonesty, and nothing ever moves into day two.

    What country do you live in? Do you not get the news? Democrats were in control of Congress from 2007-2011 and the Senate from 2007-2014 so are you telling us Obama has been in war with his own party?

    And republicans now have control of both house and senate, as well the majority of state legeslatures. So if anything fails, who should hold responsible.

    That's the way it normally works except in your world where it was always someone else's fault but not the real world. What happens on the national scale affects us all, what happens in the states is the responsibility of those in that state. I live in TX and have been very happy with the economy here and Republicans have controlled the legislature and state house now for 20 years
