Happy Hour News

If you’ve been listening to the Coup Klux Klan’s messaging, you might be thinking that the $1.9T Amero Trump-Virus Relief Bill is a sneaky bill to bail out Blue States and those nefarious Anarchist Jurisdictions like Seattle.

So how are the Dawg-fearing, family-values Red States planning on spending those lovely federal dollars coming their way?

How do Kansas lawmakers plan to pay for a $500 million tax cut? With federal tax dollars

“Early Saturday morning, Kansas’ three Republican U.S. House members voted against the massive Biden administration pandemic relief package that will send an estimated $1.6 billion to the state.

“Rep. Jake LaTurner, who represents the Topeka area, ripped the measure earlier this month as a “liberal state bailout.” Freshman GOP Sen. Roger Marshall is one of the $1.9 trillion bill’s most outspoken critics in the Senate, which will now take it up.”

Fire-up the ol’ hypocrisy generator:

Their GOP counterparts in the Kansas Legislature? They’ve effectively spent much of it already.

¡GASP! You mean… a BAILOUT?!

“…Republican lawmakers are eyeing the relief dollars to fund $500 million in tax cuts, heavily targeted to multinational corporations and wealthy and retired Kansans. “

Because if there’s one thing Kansas figured out from Gov. Brownback: tax cuts pay for themselves.

    Yeah the old trickle down theory in action. Wondering if any Kansans will ever notice that they are being trickled upon? My guess is that they too far down the rabbit hole to notice…

        More like they’ve been brainwashed into thinking it’s rosewater; a steady diet of hateradio and foxnoise for the past 30-some years has left them with nothing but etch-a-sketch powder in their skulls, and they faithfully bleat whatever their latest OTA firmware update tells them to.

        Anyone with 2 or more functional neurons and the wherewithal to do so got out long ago. Outside of Topeka/Lawrence/KCKS, it’s pretty-much inbred blockhead christopath wingnut as far as one can see.

    FWIW, I’ve long felt that Kansas is one of the worst run states in the Nation.

      It definitely is, but given the Brownback disaster, it seems like they ought to know better by now.

        “know better by now?”

        Now you swear and kick and beg us that you’re not a gamblin’ man;
        Then you find you’re back in Vegas with a handle in your hand
        Your black cards can make you money so you hide them when you’re able
        In the land of milk and honey you must put them on the table

        You go back, Jack, do it again, wheels turinin’ ’round and ’round
        You go back, Jack, do it again.
