Radio Free Kansas, Monday News Night, 30 Jan. 2012

Local News Notes:

Kansas Sierra Club has announced, along with other grassroot Kansas organizations, a three-day "Occupy Koch Town" for Feb. 13 - 15 in Wichita, Ks.

Wichita Eagle Ed-Op Blog reports that a SurveyUSA poll indicates that Ks. Gov. Sam Brownback has less of an approval rating that Pres. Barack Obama.

The Kansas City Star Editorial Board calls the governor's new "reform" of the food stamp system for immigrant school children a "fiasco."

[Excerpt] "...Only Kansas and three other states follow the most punitive way of figuring household income. That policy ends up discriminating against children who are U.S. citizens but live in homes with illegal immigrants. As a result, Kansas purposely deprives some needy children of food...."

And the Lawrence Journal World discloses that Brownback's new tax "reform" policy is a giveaway to the wealthiest of business people according to a DC based think tank.
