  •  I can attest to that (5+ / 0-)

    Living in Kansas, with a radical Republican majority that passed massive business tax cuts last year, and tax cuts for the wealthy.
    Then they realized if they didn't slash the budget, we would be a billion dollars in the hole in 2014.
    So what do they do?
    Ended tax credits for working poor.
    Ended child care deductions and mortgage interest deductions.
    Raised the sales tax (which is also on food), making Kansas the state with the highest sales taxes in the region.
    Slashed K-12 education and support for state universities.
    Passed draconian abortion laws and stupid anti-gun control laws.
    That's just the tip of the iceberg.

      Far too many are not paying attention to what is happening on the State level and making the connection.
