A Wall Street Journal editorial Thursday praised Gov. Sam Brownback’s plan to cut income taxes. It didn’t mention that key elements of that plan, including eliminating several tax deductions and making permanent the state’s temporary sales-tax increase, were rejected out of hand by Kansas House Republicans. The editorial noted that Brownback’s Medicaid reform plan requires a waiver from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which is headed by former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. But it argued that Brownback is “ right to try to use his political capital and GOP majorities to press for the kind of major reforms that would make Kansas more fiscally sound and economically competitive.”
