The fight over tax reform in Kansas has made headlines across the nation, and it hasn’t all been good press. But Kansas’ messy tax reform isn’t the only big news coming out of the Sunflower State.
Kansas has recently enacted successful welfare reforms that are a model for nationwide success. Kansas governor Sam Brownback’s policies on Medicaid expansion and food stamp reform have helped thousands of Kansans climb out of dependency while preserving taxpayer dollars for the truly needy and for other key investments in education and infrastructure.
And Brownback’s veto of Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion earlier this year signaled that he remains committed to preserving welfare for the truly needy while expanding job creation throughout the state.
