Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach running for governor

A Kansas tax cuts rollback was pushed through by the state legislature despite Gov. Sam Brownback's veto, signaling another salvo in the fight between the GOP governor and his fellow Republican lawmakers over state finances.

Legislators repudiated past income tax cuts championed by Brownback in passing a measure that is expected to raise $1.2 billion over two years. The Reagan administration itself admitted that this policy was hugely costly in the fiscal year 1990 budget that it released in its closing days.

As other states began to recover from the recession in 2014, Kansas's historic tax cut left schools and other public services mired in the recession, and declining further, according to an analysis at the time by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

But even Burr, who helped advise the Trump transition team, admonished the panel that they can't simply avoid answering at all. The hearing was often contentious, particularly when Democratic senators questioned the intelligence officials.

Supply-side tax cuts did not revive the Kansas economy either.

"We're going to have long-term negative consequences for the economy of this state, for the people of Kansas", Brownback told reporters.

In his short veto message Tuesday afternoon, Brownback said: "We can and we must balance our budget without negatively harming Kansas families". Trump's budget now calls for major increases in spending on defense and homeland security, but $4.3 trillion of cuts in domestic discretionary and mandatory spending over 10 years to tame the deficit.

Amid a gathering of supporters and media, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach announced his run for governor on Thursday in Johnson County, the wealthiest and one of the most populous counties in the state.

The return to more centrist policies could foreshadow trouble for Trump's tax plan, which is based on the same concepts that guided Brownback's overhaul beginning in 2012. It may not come as a big surprise that the beleaguered governor is reportedly in talks with the Trump administration about a new job.

Among Kansas's middle class, the share the typical household pays in state taxes will increase by 0.3 percentage points, or an average of $160 more annually. The state is repealing a "march to zero" law mandating further cuts if revenues grow. Fed up with gaping budget shortfalls, inadequate education funding and insufficient revenue, the Republican-controlled Legislature capped months of turmoil by overriding the governor's veto of a bill that would undo some of his tax cuts and raise $1.2 billion over two years. He also created a new break to foster small business, but analysts say rich residents of the state have been able to pretend to be small businesses to shelter their incomes from taxes, turning that break into a loophole. Trump's tax proposal would have a similar dynamic, Gale says, with a 15 percent business tax compared with a 33 percent top individual rate. Nearly half the state budget goes to education.
