We hope you will join us in Topeka on Thursday, April 30th to flood the halls of the Statehouse as grassroots activists by telling our state legislators not to force the taxpayers to bail them out of a budget situation they created by spending too much of our taxpayer dollars. State government spending increased 48% between 2004 and 2008 alone. That is a staggering clip that AFP warned could not be sustained. Now the legislature must do the right thing and reduce government spending, and not raise taxes on Kansas families and businesses. Our legislature shouldn’t be allowed to tax their way out of a budget problem they created. Please join us on Thursday, April 30, 2009 for AFP Flood the Statehouse in Topeka.

  • he Senate Finance Committee ended up voting 15-8 in favor of Sebelius, with the vote now heading to the full Senate. Senators Olympia J. Snowe (R-ME) and Pat Roberts (R-KS) were the lone Republican supporters, as the other eight Republicans voted against Sebelius. Prior to the committee’s two-week recess, the Republican senators of the committee had remained relatively quiet about this confirmation.

    Look who voted for Sebelius for HHS Secretary!
