    Using the playbook of the nearly bankrupt state of Kansas, Donald Trump's budget, complete with tax cuts for large corporations, leaves a shortfall of many billions of dollars, in the hope America will "grow it's way out of a budget shortfall" It didn't work in Kansas, and it won't work on a national scale either. It's amazing to me that, rather than simply doing the math, Republicans blindly follow this nonsense year after year.

    Oklahoma is a better example than Kansas.

    Of course there is Illinois as well, but that's the Obama end.
