The reality of the Kansas tax cuts
The standard Republican spin is that in order to spur economic growth we need to cut taxes on the so-called "job creators." In this video Seth Myers examines what a ginormous disaster this ideology was in Kansas. It's an ideology that has never worked for anyone but the super rich. Hence our current level of inequality and poverty not seen since the great depression. And yet these ideologues continue with their spin completely devoid of any facts. So instead of raising taxes on those who can afford it, what did the Governor do? Cut programs for children and education, among other social programs. WTF!
