How would you like your Medicare managed by the state of Kansas? I, for one, shudder at the thought of that, given the way this state under Gov. Sam Brownback has suffered through several credit-rating downgrades.
The real voting fraud is not people trying to vote illegally in Kansas but the scare tactics perpetrated on Kansans by our Legislature and Secretary of State Kris Kobach, exaggerating the threat of illegal immigrants and others trying to vote.
The Pat Roberts of the 1980s and 1990s was kind, funny, thoughtful and bipartisan. He worked closely with former Democratic U.S. Rep. Dan Glickman to make certain the farm bills of that era benefited Kansas. In depressing contrast, the current Pat Roberts voted against the farm bill this year. As we saw in the Oct. 15 debate, he’s cranky and mean.
If Gov. Sam Brownback contends that record reductions in per-pupil funding are not a detriment to maintaining or advancing student achievement in Kansas, he has his blinders on. How can he tell if the sun is really shining in our state?
There are a lot of reasons why I will oppose Gov. Sam Brownback and vote for Democratic candidate Paul Davis. However, one of the most concerning to me is how the administration seems to make decisions based on political ideology rather than facts.
Kansas teachers work for and with children and their parents to give Kansas kids the best chance possible in life. When the Legislature passed Senate Substitute for House Bill 2506, many legislators let teachers know exactly how valuable they felt teachers are.
