I’d take a bad day in Kansas versus a good day in Illinois any time

Gene “The Genius” Robke’s blah, blah, blah, criticism about the state of Kansas’ attempt to lower taxes, state costs for welfare, and other items to spend money wisely was as usual. The Republicans and Tea Party people screwed up everything in Kansas, right Gene? I am surprised you are not touting the wonders of Illinois fiscal management under the Democrats. Lay it on us, Mr. Genius. As a parallel to the old fishing comment seen on bumper stickers, I would take a bad day in Kansas versus a good day in Illinois any time of the year. Maybe you get out of Carlyle once a decade, but driving west from Illinois you realize what a stagnant economy Illinois has versus the plains states and Missouri. Tell us all about it, Gene. You are the man!
