Kan. suspends income tax refunds, may miss payroll

http://www.kansas.com/735/story/701750.html

By JOHN HANNA
Associated Press Writer

Kansas has suspended income tax refunds and may not be able to pay employees on time, the state's budget director said Monday.

The state doesn't have enough money in its main bank account to pay its bills, prompting Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to suggest transferring $225 million from other accounts throughout state government. But the move required approval from legislative leaders, and the GOP refused Monday.

Another reason to love living in Texas...no state income tax.

I wonder how soon until the federal government does this...  THAT may be the event that takes the sheople over the edge...  =-o

I am supposed to get mine from the Fed and State sometime soon. Don't you think I am holding my breath waiting. If I hear NC and the Fed will not pay me I will drive my a$$ to see my Senator and Congressman and demand my money. Or, maybe I should just go to a Obama conference and tell him my plight and then I will get whatever I want. I am not kidding. Go watch the latest Jon Stewart 'Daily Show' where he does just that with two people. Must be wonderful being the granter of wishes. Who knew we'd get a fairy godmother for a President.

the funny thing is that you can't just waltz into one of those and then just happen to get selected to ask a question. you are chosen by them to attend and speak.
i swear this b grade movie just keeps getting worse and worse.

as for kansas not being able to pay out the refunds, well guess what, more than likely i owe them (always do). i'm tight on cash too, does that mean i don't have to pay???
funny how that option only works one way.

First California, now Kansas. It is amazing, these people just can not reduce spending.

There is just one person I would trust to get the spending stopped and to get the country in order...

Ron Paul

I think it is too late to counter-act things now. Even if Ron Paul were running things I do not think we can turn this thing around so easily, however, things would be better over all.

Everyone knows the solution is more spending.  ;)

To CA an KS:


To the United States and the rest of us that live here:


God rest her soul...she was a fine country and will be sorely missed (in her original form)

(these wouldn't have been blue states, would they? ;))

I wonder. Now you have me thinking. Perhaps, if both CA and KS are Blue states, it proves that you can not spend your way out of trouble.

1 and 1.

But, you are correct....you CAN'T spend what you don't have.....no matter how much you print or color copy.

With printers ink going up in price, I wonder when the run will start on HP and Xerox color cartridges :)
