After all the speeches on the Kansas House floor last year by conservative Republicans about how raising the statewide sales tax was irresponsible and would douse an economic recovery. After all the mailings and advertisements by Americans for Prosperity and the Kansas Chamber of Commerce condemning lawmakers who voted for the sales-tax increase. After all the campaign promises during the 2010 election about repealing the sales-tax increase. After all that, the House voted 80-39 last week not to repeal the 1 percentage point, three-year sales-tax increase. House lawmakers are still considering a plan to divert state revenue growth greater than the inflation rate toward reducing corporate and individual income taxes.
