Yes, Kansas is getting laughed at yet more in the media today and sadly but rightly so:
From the article:
A Republican state lawmaker in Kansas says that he opposes cutting the taxes on groceries because it would be a form of "social engineering" that encourages people to buy food over other items.Here are just two of the comments I saw this morning, in response to Senator Melcher's comments:
They have their own special kind of crazy going on in Kansas.
Kansans, you voted 'em in. It's up to you to vote them out.
Next time, vote in some smarter ones.
Maybe some that care more about the entire state and the middle- and lower-classes instead of the wealthy, the corporations and, oh yeah, the Koch brothers.
