Default GOP wrecked Kansas economy so bad they had to auction off dildos for cash


Looks like things are looking bad for residents of the state that the koch brother's bought.

<“In the last few years, Kansas has become somewhat of a laboratory for Conservative Gov. Sam Brownback who cut taxes for the wealthy and completely eliminated income taxes for small businesses.>

<“‘Real-live experiment’ is a terrible sales pitch for something,” Meyers said. “Those words usually only show up in shady classified ads.” Still, Brownback got his tax cuts and his fully implemented economic policy thanks to a Republican legislature.>

<He even told the Wall Street Journal in 2013, “My focus is to create a red-state model that allows the Republican ticket to say, ‘See we’ve got a different way, and it works.'”>

<The problem, we now know, is that it didn’t work. It failed so spectacularly that Kansas’s economy was downgraded by the S&P. Supporters claimed the plan would generate $323 million in new revenue but it actually produced a $688 million loss.>

this is the good part.

They’re so desperate for cash they even auctioned off pornography and sex toys from a company that owed back taxes and whose property they seized.

<“And now,” Meyers said with a smirk, “here are the jokes we made to make fun of the Kansas dildo auction: Nothing like selling fake d*cks to solve a problem created by a real one. Selling the dildos didn’t solve the whole problem. Just the tip. It’s hard to sell dildos to people who are already f*cked. And the worst one: Dildo, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore.>

And Republicans haven't learned a damn thing from the Kansas failure.

I figured it was a joke but

Ooh la la. How’s this for a badly timed event? An auction of sex toys to make up for nonpayment of taxes by their owner is about to occur in Kansas.

This is not the kind of event the Sam Brownback administration wants publicized as the Republican incumbent engages in a tough re-election campaign against Democrat Paul Davis.

Brownback is the straight-laced, tough-talking governor who won’t like his department officials being linked in any way to this sale.

On Wednesday, giddy Democrats pounced on the announcement.

“Brownback is so desperate to fill the massive hole in the state budget caused by his reckless income tax cuts that the state of Kansas is now in the porn business,” said Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley. “This is the same governor whose supporters spent this past week attacking his opponent for a strip club incident that happened 16 years ago.”

Oh, yeah, that non-story about Davis is going to be overshadowed now, as it should be.

Even Brownback administration officials recognize the interest the sale will generate.

“What is different is the titillation factor of what we’re selling,” said Jeannine Koranda, spokeswoman for the revenue agency. “This is an unusual lot of items.”

From The Topeka Capital-Journal: “The online site lists about 400 lots — individual lots contain can dozens of items — that include the Pipedream Fantasy Love Swing, books, hundreds of DVDs, sex and drinking games, a wide assortment of sexually oriented equipment, the carrying cases for devices, the Glass Pleasure Wand, bundles of lingerie and the Cyberskin Foot Stroker.”

To be clear, state revenue officials should be aggressive in recouping back taxes owed by all kinds of businesses.

And the state can’t always decide when it’s going to hold these kinds of online sales.

But all in all, this is another slightly embarrassing episode in the Brownback campaign for another term. It just helps remind people of the tax-cut fiasco over which he has presided.

Cutting out the attack the messenger approach because it's meaningless...

There are plenty of articles by non-comedians documenting Kansas's Republican f***up.

California is in good shape. And BTW a Republican is governor of Michigan. Anyway, you are deflecting. Republican policies ruined Kansas and Louisiana. Just admit it and let's not change the subject

ROFLMAO

Kansas is the perfect example of why Republican economic and tax policies don't work.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

Kansas explicitly had its leaders specify that they were adopting the Republican model in hopes to be able to tell others "See? It works!" afterwards.

Now, they can't.


I don't know what the hell you're referencing with the attempted derailment of California or Michigan references.

I think you may need to educate yourself on California.
California, Suffering With a $26 Billion Deficit Not Long Ago, Now Has an $8 Billion Surplus

As for Michigan:
* Rick Snyder - Republican
* Brian Calley - Republican
* Ruth Johnson - Republican
* Bill Schuette - Republican
* State Senate - 27 Repubs / 11 Dems
* State House - 63 Repub / 47 Dems
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politi...th_in_Michigan

Any other stupid allegations to throw out there for other Repubs to mindlessly thank you for?
