Brownback’s tax cuts fail again: Kansas job growth in 2014 lagged region and nation

Sam Brownback’s tax cuts fail again: Kansas job growth in 2014 lagged region and nation

A new jobs report released Tuesday shows that Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s tax cuts failed to propel the state ahead of others in the region in creating employment in all of 2014.

Missouri — which did not slash income taxes as Kansas did — beat the Sunflower State in gaining jobs in the last year.

Kansas also was far behind the U.S. average job growth over that time.

That pretty much destroys Brownback’s constant whining that President Barack Obama’s policies have held back employment in Kansas. Many other states are doing just fine in padding their jobs rolls.

Here are the numbers, all culled from official U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data.

2. Just wait, that wealth will trickle down any day now.

Maybe they just need to eliminate taxes for rich bitches and corporations all together. That'll do it.

5. Jobs don't need to grow much when unemployment is already low

6. Unemployment is low because people are leaving the Kansas for a job in Missouri or elsewhere.

8. Easy to say but not the least bit in evidence on the ground

Fact is that of the growing population of Kansans of those age 16 and over 66.5%are in the work force and only 4.2% are unemployed.

You mentioned Missouri-of those age 16 and 64.5% are in the work force and 5.6% are unemployed. Given those numbers its kinda unlikely the Joads are headed there because of tough times around Wichita. But hey you are entitled to a wrong opinion.

Or lets take New York- the prog flagship State-of those age 16 and only 60.0% are in the work force and 5.7% of those are unemployed.

Cherry pick stats as you will the reality is still that Kansas is a good place under Sam Brownback- far better than New York, Illinois, Cali the liberal/prog heartlands. You all stay there and we will stay in places like Kansas. Everyone will do just fine once you all learn to mind your own affairs and cease trying to mind other folks business.
