Kansas lab rats

Where’s my cheese? I never planned or wanted to be a lab rat, but I guess I am one … along with every other Kansas citizen.
Recently on “Morning Joe” on M-S-N-B-C, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback explained the huge tax cuts he pushed through the state legislature. Brownback said: “We’ll see how it works. We’ll have a real live experiment”.
I thought social experimentation was the domain of Liberals. Sam Brownback’s not a Liberal … is he?
What happens to us lab rats if this great experiment fails? We’re going to have to fill some mighty big gaps in the state budget. How will we do that? Reduce spending? Many Kansans believe we’ve cut spending about as much as we can … or should.
No … we’ll have to raise taxes. Income, sales, property … all three?
Hey … I’m not the scientist here … I’m the lab rat.
Our thought for today is from Herbert Hoover:
“America – a great social and economic experiment, noble in motive and far-reaching in purpose.”
