Laura Kelly: Experiment of no taxes on businesses drained our budget

Kelly slammed former Gov. Sam Brownback for his "experiment" of lower taxes and no taxes for certain types of businesses. That approach drained the state budget and shortchanged Kansas schools, Kelly said.

She asked the friendly crowd to "join me in slamming the door shut tight and throw away the key on the Brownback years." Kelly said Kobach would "double down" on that approach if he's elected governor.

"If you thought Brownback was bad, Kris Kobach is Brownback on steroids," she said. That phrase has become a rallying cry among state Democrats, and many of the audience shouted "steroids" with Kelly.
