Reading Dick Polman’s commentary on Saturday’s Opinion page about the disconnect between GOP governors and senators on the economic stimulus package, a Kansan might wonder whether Sen. Sam Brownback, for example, might feel differently about the measure if he were Gov. Brownback. The senator said last month: “There’s no doubt our economy needs a stimulus, but more government spending is not the right answer. We should be cutting taxes and we should give back to taxpayers more of their money.” But if Brownback were governor, facing a mammoth 2010 budget gap, he might sound more like Florida’s GOP Gov. Charlie Crist, who stood with President Barack Obama this week and urged passage of the stimulus, saying, “It is important that we do so to help education, to help our infrastructure and to help health care for those who need it most, the most vulnerable among us.”
