Kansas a bad tax-cut model

taxcutsA new study by the left-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities in Washington, D.C., warns other states not to follow Kansas’ tax-cut model. “As other states recover from the recent recession and turn toward the future, Kansas’ huge tax cuts have left that state’s schools and other public services stuck in the recession, and declining further – a serious threat to the state’s long-term economic vitality,” the report said. “Meanwhile, promises of immediate economic improvement have utterly failed to materialize.” It noted that job growth in Kansas is lagging the national average and that “business growth has been unimpressive.”
