  •  My sister is a teacher in Kansas. (5+ / 0-)

    Brownback's cut-backs eliminated one of her streams of income for teaching the arts (theater) in a low-income area of their city.  She is due back pay for six months'work.  The state keeps promising "next month, next month", but they won't issue the damn check.

    How the hell are people supposed to survive when they are missing SIX MONTHS worth of pay????

    F**K YOU, Brownback, you scum bag.

    •  Brownback demonstrated his hatred for the arts (4+ / 0-)

      by eliminating all funding for the Kansas Arts Commission via a line-item veto, even though his original veto was overridden by the Republican-dominated legislature.  I suggest that your sister write letters to all the major newspapers in Kansas about being owed back pay.  Perhaps that will shame the state into paying her.  (Brownback has no shame, so public criticism won't change his actions in the least.)
