“I believe in the Kansas way, not the Obama way,” GOP gubernatorial candidate Sam Brownback said, vowing to fight federal health care reform, which he called “an abomination.” Well, what exactly is the “Kansas way”? An estimated 350,000 Kansans lack health insurance, according to new census estimates. And during his 16 years in Congress, Brownback hasn’t done much to help them or to curb rising health care costs. Meanwhile, thanks to the reform law, more than 260,000 Kansans will get a tax credit beginning in 2014 to help reduce the cost of private health insurance, according to a new report from Families USA.
