  •  Sadder yet! (6+ / 0-)

       I recently read about KS in an article via Witchita.  I then looked at how the lower state income tax and the decreasing deductions on State Income are being slashed.
         Given the loss of tax deductions, it would seem that he is going to either bankrupt the average citizen or drive them out of the State.  

          I can't remember if taxes are paid on income from those who don't live their as a full time resident.   Although I did read that if you live in KS and work outside the State that the income from out of State is not taxable in KS.

          Does that mean that if you have permanent resident status in KS and work in another state - that you essentially don't pay taxes on any income?

          I live in TX - and it is amazing to see the rush to who can skrew the people of the State more.

    •  "Lower income tax" is somewhat misleading. (6+ / 0-)

      Taxes are lower for most people, yes.  Taxes fell the most for the richest, yes.  

      But taxes on people earning under $15,000 are going UP.  It is a perverse and stupid program that the teahaddists are pursuing.

      US Senator Jerry (coward) Moran is sponsoring a "Tea Party Coalition" in the Senate.  What a joke. He never had any interest in that crap until he became scared of them.

    •  I think that is aimed at KC suburbs (2+ / 0-)

      Kansas City's suburbs are largely in Kansas, so I think he's hoping to buy the votes of a lot of people who work in Missouri.  Well, a lot of moochers who work in Missouri.

      I used to live in Texas... I think a lot of the problem there is that people, especially conservatives, think they live in Texas™, not in Texas.  They've taken the Texas of marketing and myth and turned it into their reality.  Real reality doesn't care of course, and will bite them in the ass soon enough.

      I don't know what Kansas's excuse is, though.

      Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.
