In 2012, Governor Sam Brownback launched a tax experiment that devastated Kansans in all walks of life. It resulted in nine rounds of budget cuts, three statewide credit rating downgrades, record high debt, anemic job growth, and there appears to be no end in sight.
Kansans can’t afford to keep living in this senseless era of crisis.
Rise Up, Kansas is a coalition of organizations and advocates who are committed to enacting comprehensive, commonsense tax reform in 2017. Our plan will end the irresponsible deficit spending embraced by some policymakers since 2012. It restores fairness to our state, ensuring all Kansans equally support our communities so we can all thrive together. And, most importantly, it finally puts Kansas on the path to recovery while preserving current income tax rates for 70% of earners.
Every Kansan deserves the opportunity to realize the great promise of this state.
