Kansas Governor Defends Tax Increase

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback is defending the state’s tax policies with renewed vigor, just a week after lawmakers raised sales and cigarette taxes to help fix a budget deficit. Critics, including many Democrats, say the take hikes will hurt those with low-incomes.  But Brownback argues that even with these recent tax hikes… Kansas residents are paying less in taxes than they did before 2012.

Asked if he fears increased sales taxes will drive Kansas consumers to Missouri… the governor admitted it will be “something to watch.”
