Something good is happening in Kansas

The tone of this article isn't positive--after all it comes from the Washington Post.
In the past year, three state agencies [in Kansas] have been abolished and 2,050 jobs have been cut. Funding for schools, social services and the arts have been slashed. The new Republican governor [Sam Brownback] rejected a $31.5 million federal grant for a new health-insurance exchange because he opposes President Obama’s health-care law. And that’s just the small stuff. . .

The governor has said his main concerns are creating jobs, cutting taxes and bringing new businesses to the state, which has been losing population to domestic migration over the past decade and ranks near the bottom in private-sector job creation.

“We cannot continue on this path and hope we can move forward and win the future,” he said in the Wichita speech . “It won’t work. We have to change course, and we’re going to have to be aggressive about it or we are doomed to a slow decline.”

I don't know very much about American politics. The only thing I know is that Bush who is republican put you in this mess over his 8 years, and poor Obama should get rid of the mess. Not an easy job. I like him very much and his ideas are good ! At least he stopped this senseless war in Irak also a gift from dear Bush.

Gattina, Bush didnt get us into a mess.The Democrats who ran congress during Bush's last 2 years helped get us into that mess. Obama made the mess worse. He is one and done. Do some research on American politics. Obama is the worst president we have ever had. That is now a fact.
