Kansas GOP Refuses to Stand Up for Kansans
Topeka, KS – This weekend’s news was astonishing. President Trump is hurtling the U.S. further into a petty and destructive trade war with our strongest allies, and Kansas Republicans continue to do nothing to stand up for Kansas farmers.
Let’s be clear about this: Kansas Republicans refuse to lift a finger to protect everyday Kansans because a Republican is in the White House.
The D.C. Republicans claiming to represent everyday Kansans worked as hard as they could to take away our health insurance and medical protections and then turned around and gave massive tax breaks to wealthy corporations and their rich party donors.
Now the very livelihoods of the ordinary Americans that Kansas Republicans are supposed to advocate for are under attack. And what have Kansas Republicans done? Nothing.
Kansas farmers are already hurting. Whether it’s low commodity prices or the increasingly harsh droughts and severe weather, we already have enough on our plate. We can’t afford self-inflicted pain.
Kansas Democrats will fight and stand up for everyday Kansans in both Topeka and Washington, because we believe Kansans deserve better. This November, let’s take back Kansas.
