Colyer Touts Failed Brownback Budget Principles In First Speech
Topeka, KS – Today, Brownback clone Jeff Colyer outlined his agenda in a joint speech. And just like his predecessor, his policies were filled with promises, but short on fiscal reality.
Kansas Democratic Party Executive Director Ethan Corson released the following statement on the speech:
“Today, Jeff Colyer gave Kansans more of the same empty talk that we heard from Brownback administration. Colyer made lofty promises about fixing the state’s education, transportation, and Medicaid systems – all of which he ran into the ground. But just like Brownback, he used the same phony math to back it all up. Kansans deserve a governor who will get real about the fiscal issues facing Kansas, but it looks like we are stuck with another phony math Brownback clone.”
