In 2012, Kansas enacted severe tax cuts. They could have been the shining demonstration of the success of a the Republican low-tax utopia. But instead of the wet dream, low-tax Kansas became a nightmare. Schools are poorly funded. The damage by the Great Recession to public services has been deepened and extended rather than alleviated. There was no improvement to the Kansas economy. New jobs and earnings have lagged behind the rest of the country. And the situation is projected to continue to be worse than the rest of the nation. But it was good for the wealthy.
Do we need any more evidence that those calling for lower taxes are only interested in lining their pockets at the expense of society as a whole?
