Kansas Governor Sam Brownback's plan to cut income and business taxes is getting both praise and criticism in Topeka.  Supporters and opponents of the plan sounded off today (WED) at a pair of Statehouse rallies. Terry Forsyth, head of the Working Kansas Alliance, says the governor should focus more on legislation designed to directly grow jobs and improve the economy. Forsyth says Brownback's tax proposal would actually increase taxes paid by low-wage workers.
