KANSANS ARE ALREADY HURTING FROM HIGH INFLATION

Kansans are spending $730 more each month on their bills because of inflation, and we’re also paying higher taxes. If you get a pay increase, the state will collect more income tax from you, and local property taxes are going up faster than inflation for many Kansans. Meanwhile, state and local governments are spending Kansas into oblivion when they should reduce the tax burden, especially on the most vulnerable.

THE TAX-AND-SPEND MENTALITY IN KANSAS IS HURTING FAMILIES

Like runaway spending at the federal level, the bad spending habits of the Kansas legislature is creating a bigger financial burden for families.

LAWMAKER SPENDING IS A PROBLEM FOR ALL KANSANS

Lawmakers are spending Kansans into oblivion, when they should be reducing the tax burden on the most vulnerable.

Their strategy is failing. Kansans are leaving in droves, and taking their businesses with them. When businesses leave, so do jobs.

To add insult to injury, Kansas is ranked the third-worst state for retirees, meaning that Kansans at every age are feeling the impacts of lawmaker decisions.

WHAT IS THE SOLUTION FOR KANSAS?

  1. Families in Kansas need lower state and local taxes, which can be paid for by reducing the cost of government.
  2. Streamlining the regulatory burden should create growth for businesses and individuals in Kansas.
  3. The Responsible Kanas Budget ensures financial stability and reduces future tax burdens on hard-working Kansans.
  4. Kansas families have to live within their means, so should the state government.

INFLATION STINGS ENOUGH WITHOUT LAWMAKERS TAKING MORE INCOME TAX AND MORE REVENUE THAN THEY NEED.
