Kansas Leadership Resolutions?


It’s New Year resolution time but, I suspect a lot of Kansas leadership is simply resolving not to change a single thing…


(Tune of Auld Lang Syne)

Should old positions be held to
And never ever changed
When evidence is just ignored
Isn’t that a bit deranged???


When evidence is everywhere
For Medicaid expansion now
Our legislators and governor
Cover up their ears and frown


Sam Brownback’s economic plan
Should be shown to the door
Statistical proof won’t change his mind
He just doubles down once more


They’ve privatized child services
Now children are suffering
Cut funds for schools, but still refuse
To correct a single thing


For all the evidence, I’ve seen
That many things should change
I fear the year 2016
Will just bring more of the same.
