Americans for Prosperity model budget to be presented

This Friday Derrick Sontag, Kansas State Director for Americans for Prosperity, will address members and guests of the Wichita Pachyderm Club. His topic is “An update on the budget shortfall in Kansas, how we got there through excessive spending, and how our state’s tax burden compares with neighboring states.”

AFP’s model budget for Kansas is titled Commonsense Budget Proposal. It contains “a roadmap for legislators seeking to make Kansas government more efficient — and less costly — without turning to Kansas taxpayers,” according to Sontag.

All are welcome to attend Pachyderm club meetings. The program costs $10, which includes a delicious buffet lunch including salad, soup, two main dishes, and ice tea and coffee. The meeting starts at noon, although it’s recommended to arrive fifteen minutes early to get your lunch before the program starts.

The Wichita Petroleum Club is on the ninth floor of the Bank of America Building at 100 N. Broadway (north side of Douglas between Topeka and Broadway) in Wichita, Kansas (click for a map and directions). Park in the garage just across Broadway and use the sky walk to enter the Bank of America building. Bring your parking garage ticket to be stamped and your parking fee will be only $1.00. There is usually some metered and free street parking nearby.


  • blah .. blah …
    cut our taxes ..
    blah … blah … blah
    cut our taxes …
    reduce corporate and individual income taxes
    blah …
    what a surprise

    And certainly cut any help to wind manufacturers – not that Koch, Boeing or Cessna ever got any stimulus.

    I am surprised they don’t recommend reducing the number of counties to 4 and the number of cities to 10 to reduce those expenses as well.

  • You folks over at AFP who keep talking about dropping tax rates – in the interest of full disclosure – would you share your numbers with us so we can see how you would be impacted ?

    If you are going to suggest modifications I want to see how you would fair both under current financial regulations and under those that you are suggesting we adopt.

    That is only after all fair – right.
