How can anyone that owns property in Montgomery County KS afford to get out of KS? Really I want to know because if there was anyone out there actually naive enough to buy property at this time in Montgomery County KS maybe those of us that have been here for life could get out, and believe me we would. Montgomery County is trying to tax their property owners out and I would love to go along with their plan, but they have it so bad here no one will buy here so we can get out. You are far better off just renting in this county. They seem to hate property owners.

In a shocking turn of events yesterday, Brownback’s top crusader against workers’ rights mysteriously left the agency. Kansas Department of Labor Secretary Karin Brownlee is no longer in charge. The announcement came buried in the third line of a press release about the appointment of two deputy secretaries, Olathe Mayor Mike Copeland and outgoing Republican Rep. Lana Gordon. The same release names Rep. Gordon as the interm Secretary until Brownback can name a replacement.
According to sources within the Department of Labor, who wish to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of a personnel matter and the fear if retribution from the blood thirsty Brownback administration, tensions between Brownback and Brownlee had been escalating throughout the 2012 legislative session. Brownback was upset with Brownlee’s performance, because she was not able to shepherd through several anti-labor bills (which you can read about on our site) and thought that she was no longer able to be trusted as a point person for an even larger assault on Labor to come next year.
We knew that next we we would see a larger and move aggressive attack on workers rights but we never thought Brownback would attempt to purify his ranks to help ensure he’d get his way. But then again it’s exactly what he’s done with the Senate by targeting moderate legislators in order to buy the Senate he wants and knows will rubber stamp his extremist idea.

Last Tuesday afternoon, while a distracted public awaited the day’s election results, a group of Kansas officials announced that the state was about to fall into a deep financial hole.
The numbers announced by the Consensus Estimating Group, while not unexpected, are shockingly bad. The state is projected to receive $707 million less in revenues next year than it is currently spending.
Part of that hole could be filled by spending down a reserve fund of $470 million, although extinguishing the reserve balance to meet routine expenses is a sure sign of a fiscally ill state. Even with that contingency, after factoring in some new budget assumptions, analysts anticipate the state’s leaders will have to find about $328 million in either cuts or new revenues to come up with a balanced spending plan for the fiscal year beginning July 1.
That number strikes fear in the hearts of school superintendents, university leaders, state workers and the people who care for the state’s disabled and vulnerable citizens. They have weathered cuts and shortages for years and face the prospect of more.
But not everyone was dismayed by the findings of the economists and state officials who analyze state finances. Giddy with election night victories, some conservative Republicans told reporters they’d like to cut taxes — and thus revenues — even more.
Talk about a state of denial.
Kansas’ financial wound is self-inflicted. Gov. Sam Brownback and conservatives in the Legislature this year sharply cut income tax rates, despite warnings that expected business growth could not make up for the lost revenue.
The income tax cuts will cost the state about $400 million in next year’s budget, and $4.5 billion over the next six years.

Look, if people in Montgomery County, especially property owners, could move out of here don't you think we would already be gone?
It is beyond imagination how stupid these people running this county and this state must be.
Not only do they do nothing to attract business but they chase out the ones they have here along with all property owners that can manage to find someone naive enough to buy here, and that is not easy.
I wonder if they have figured out where the revenue will come from after they chase us all out?
