"Saturday High Noon" Program Summary: Feb. 21, 2015

Dorothy and other Kansas expats can still hear the latest on Radio Free Kansas.

To listen today, or anytime click here.

What's the matter with Kansas? "The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy recently reported that Kansas has the ninth-most unfair tax system in the county. A Kansan earning $47,700 a year pays 9.5 percent of income in state and local taxes; but someone earning $1,191,700 pays an effective rate of just 3.6 percent."

So much for the 'trickle down' libertarian economic theories masterminded by: the Wichita plutocrats Charles & David Koch; and implemented by Gov. Sam Brownback and his super-majority in the state legislature.

Program Summary: 21 Feb. 2015

Kansas legislative news shorts provided by the Kansas National Organization of Women, the Kansas Democratic Party, Kansas Farmers Union, local news media, etc.

Hear what committee chief is holding up Medicaid expansion in Kansas, and why. Also the latest last ditch attempt to keep irrigating federally subsidized crops in the Kansas southwestern desert.

Then we jump into Talk Radio Europe on Syriza facing off with the European central bankers and the European Union.

2nd Hour - Hear the latest (released for distribution 20 Feb. 2015) from investigative reporter, Tony Gosling & "Old Labour" Martin Summer as they host from Bristol's community radio station the "Friday Drivetime" show.

All that and more on today's Radio Free Kansas.
