I live in Kansas City, Missouri and for the past two years, I’ve seen ALL of the good jobs move to Kansas City, Kansas (Olathe and Lenexa). Kansas’s unemployment rate is a full 2% lower than Missouri’s. This year, Kansas will have a huge budget surplus. While Missouri is still trying to find areas to cut.
If The Brookings Institution is going to peddle a lie, why use Kansas? It’s so easily disprovable.
Every economic indicator shows Kansas leading the country today. Yes, there was a bit of pain when this all rolled out, but today things are looking very good for Kansas.
