Republican Tax Cut Disaster: Kansas’ Economy Continues to Sink After Governor Promised Growth

It’s no secret that the Republican party’s economic ideology is based on tax cuts, commonly referred to as “trickle-down economics.” It’s generally the belief that the more the rich have, the better off the rest of us will be via more jobs, higher wages and a stimulated economy.
