You know things are about to get interesting when the Democrats start whining about a government entity spending too much money.
Take for example this guy: @JasonPerkey He is desperately upset that the Legislature spent $45,000 in salaries today for 11 minutes of work. And then he tweeted a picture about how poor, poor Kansas teachers can barely survive.
I think he meant to say the Legislature hates children. Otherwise, why on earth would the members of the Kansas House and Senate stand their ground on issues of great importance like taxes and the budget?
Here's the 4-1-1: The Kansas Senate and the Kansas House are still a ways apart on a tax plan. The 90-day session has dragged on an extra week with no end in sight. The Senate is insistent on a budget that raises taxes. The House is insistent on one that won't.
They've had some squabbles about meeting somewhere in the middle, which I will note, means a tax increase albeit a smaller one.
In my not-so humble opinion, the House is negotiating from a position of strength. (And probably fear. They will face voters sooner than the Senate.)
From my vantage point, it doesn't look like the House is any closer to budging. It might be time for the Senate to think about compromise.
Oh, and if you want a laugh, parse through the liberal tweeters losing their minds about the state spending money. What a bunch of hypocrites. (Also, not to put too fine a point on it, but Andy Marso is supposed to be an impartial observer. His tweets suggest otherwise.)
