What if tax experiment doesn’t work?

A group of former GOP lawmakers called on Gov. Sam Brownback to explain comments he made this week on the MSNBC talk show “Morning Joe.” After describing his tax-cut plan, Brownback said: “We’ll see how it works. We’ll have a real live experiment” – noting analysts will be able to compare how Kansas performs economically to area states that didn’t cut taxes. Rochelle Chronister, spokeswoman for Traditional Republicans for Common Sense, applauded Brownback for admitting the experimental nature of his tax plan. “Unfortunately,” she said, “this ‘experiment’ will bankrupt our state.” Chronister said the question that Brownback still needs to answer is: “How are we going to pay for this plan?”
