In February, some members of the Kansas Legislature were so upset with the judiciary that they introduced to bill to impeach judges who "usurp the authority of the legislature"; but then this month, the legislature gave away their precious authority to make a budget. They had the Governor make the decisions how to cut $97 Million. More cuts to services, following cuts made in previous years. Cuts that were necessary despite increases in sales taxes, property taxes, license fees. Some have likened the state of the Kansas economy to a "rolling dumpster fire", I prefer the more traditional "train wreck".
Before the upcoming election we need to ask incumbent legislators, "Were you complicit in the train wreck or were you too weak or just unwilling to stop it? Either way, why don't you give someone else a chance to do the right thing?"
