A poll conducted recently by an organization called Public Policy Polling out of Raleigh, North Carolina shows that there are a significant number of Kansans who are uncomfortable with Governor Sam Brownback’s plan to phase out the state’s income tax.
The poll says 48% of voters are opposed to the plan. Included in that number, 68% of the moderates polled and 56% of the independent voters polled. The poll also indicates that 28% of the state’s Republicans are opposed to the income tax overhaul.
State Democratic Party Chair Joan Wagnon jumped on the numbers saying, “Kansans see through the fairy tale the Governor is spinning and understand his policies will hurt Kansas student, Kansas workers, and Kansas families.
Mitchell County Democratic Party Chair Matt Otte said Brownback’s predecessors left the state in pretty good financial shape despite a recession.
