they won't...im starting to realize- they just blame the "other", black people, immigrants, Chinese, etc.....and get distracted by wedge issues to vote these clowns in again who promise them that the reason they failed last time was b/c it wasn't "pure" enough, and was b/c of RINOs.

Lol..."decimated economy", "Yuge (with a Y lol) amount of people that are fleeing the state", lol....

Brownback has been a big turd but you and others here are clearly drinking some deep political koolaid, it's not that bad.

Like watching right wingers depict Chicago as a death trap to visit.

Or they just claim the problem was in the implementation or that budget cuts didn't occur fast enough, yada yada yada. Once the population starts to catch on, the GOP just whips out the shiny objects of abortion and gays to distract people from what is actually going on.

So PLEASE tell me how this is a fiscal crisis rather than a constitutional crisis, where the Kansas Supreme Court unconstitutionally interfered with the constitutional authority of the Kansas Congress to establish, set, raise and lower education funding as they see fit.
You can argue about that all you want. But you ignore a earlier question.

Bottom line. Simple question. Did Kansas have a higher or lower revenue.

Additionally Kansas spends below the nation's average on schools.....even after the supreme court forced them to spend more.

One of the issues that's left out by folks trying that argument is that in addition to lower then average spending, the primary reason they were sued was that they financed the wealthier districts just fine....but those poor folks don't really need a good education right?

Maybe now Republicans will finally admit that Trickle Down voodoo economics is a dismal failure. The whole idea that lowering tax rates automatically increases economic activity, which in turn causes tax revenue to rise, is once again proven false.

We in Missouri are getting ready to face trickle-down. Our new Republican governor is already cutting education funding and aid to the poor. Typical Republican. And the state was doing good financially until now.

California is not running a surplus. It was predicted in late 2016 that they would in 2017 but that hasn't materialized.

"California's nonpartisan legislative analyst said Wednesday he's forecasting a $2.8 billion budget surplus next year and says California should be able to weather a mild recession without major budget cuts or tax increases over the next four years."

In January the budget was set to loose 1.6 billion by the summer

"Less than four years after declaring California’s budget balanced for the foreseeable future, Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday said the state is projected to run a $1.6-billion deficit by next summer "

There is no such economic theory as trickle down. The media made it up. You and many others fell for it.
