The Embarrassing States Of Missouri and Kansas State Legislators and Legislatures


It's difficult to see which is worse, frequently.

First, from Missouri, rather famously:


Kansas legislators, after slashing taxes for the wealthy and corporations and increasing them for the middle-, lower- and working-classes, hurting the state's credit rating and wiping out their budget, tries to raise some money. Once again, it would be on the backs, largely, of the lower, middle and upper classes but that should be no surprise. And even that failed.





Kansas needs to take care of its fiscal house and isn't, can't, it seems. 

Missouri needs to do all kinds of things, not least of which is work to get a fix for the infrastructure of the state. The highways, bridges and roads and the budgets for them need attention and fixing. The legislature is nowhere close to addressing and fixing that problem alone.

Shameful.
