Kansas has a poverty problem. Kansas has a jobs problem. Kansas has an infant mortality problem.
Nothing, NOTHING the legislature has done this session addresses any of these things and in many cases actually exacerbates them.
How exactly does defunding Planned Parenthood help create jobs? How does creating arbitrary abortion clinic regulations help with our infant mortality rates?
The most heinous part - is that while the state government is slashing and burning the arts, education and a host of other things, they can seem to find the funds to hire a high priced law firm to do the job of the State Attorney General. By most estimates that I could find - Foulston Siefkin generally bills somewhere in the $200 per hour range...not exactly chump change. I will be very interested to see how much this ends up costing the state. Oh and by the way - I hope the Brownback administration gets their asses handed to them by a bunch of pro-bono attorneys for Planned Parenthood.
