House Democratic Leader Tom Burroughs, D-33rd Dist., said in a statement that the governor’s tax policy plan announced Saturday is “merely a continuation of a problem.”

Burroughs’ statement:

“The plan the governor has put forth is not a solution, but merely a continuation of a problem. Rather than admitting the root cause of the problem, his failed 2012 tax plan, Brownback is attempting to balance the budget on the backs of middle class and working families. Not only is this plan irresponsible and unsustainable, but I find it unconscionable that Republicans are asking individual Kansans to pay more in taxes while wealthy big businesses pay none.”
