I want to know why on earth you endorsed Greg Orman instead of Chad Taylor.

These are things that give me pause with Greg Orman.

On taxes Orman says:

“By eliminating loopholes, credits, and deductions and lowering the overall corporate tax rate…”

From Robert Reich:

“Last year, the Government Accountability Office, examined corporate tax returns in detail and found that in 2010, profitable corporations headquartered in the United States paid an effective federal tax rate of 13 percent on their worldwide income, 17 percent including state and local taxes. Some pay no taxes at all.”

IF the corporations would ACTUALLY pay a reduced rate which would be more than they are paying now.


“We should also move to a territorial tax system…”

Google ‘territorial tax system". This is a Koch baby. I’m finding it associated with Fix the Debt also…

The Fiscal and Economic Risks of Territorial Taxation

Orman on healthcare:

“We had a national crisis in health care before the Affordable Care Act passed, and that crisis still exists today. But instead of playing political games with this issue as Republicans and Democrats in Congress have done, I believe we need to focus on what Washington can actually do to ensure that healthcare is affordable for all Americans.

It’s clear that with the Affordable Care Act the Congress simply expanded a broken system, one that rewards providers for more tests and procedures rather than for better outcomes for individuals. We have to change that way of thinking, alter the incentives to providers to reward quality not quantity of care, and ensure that our government as the largest purchaser of healthcare in the country is prudent with the dollars it spends."

This certainly does NOT sound like he’s supportive of the ACA.

Orman on jobs and the economy:

“I’m the only candidate in this race who has a real record of private sector job creation. And as a businessman, I’ve had to deal with many of the problems that most of the folks in Washington only talk about. I’ve had to deal with rising healthcare costs, balancing budgets, and the impact of new regulations. Running a business is about solving problems every day.”

The United States government is NOT a business. It is run NOTHING LIKE a business. No business can decide to do a project, get it all approved and lined up THEN create taxes or tariffs or fees to cover it. Government is not suppose to make a profit, it creates no product, sells no service. It is NOT a business and businessmen screw it up.

Orman on government spending:

“As a country, we need to live within our means. I believe it’s immoral to pass along large debts to the next generation. The only way we get spending under control is by making hard choices that Congress today seems unwilling to make. With each party fighting for their own pet projects and political power, there is no accountability to the American people.”

This is MORE rightwing BS. We are NOT living above our means, they keep cutting the revenue for the 1%. WWII saw the debt go as high GDP% as we are and it was paid down under 20 years. The debt wasn’t the focus THEN and it shouldn’t be NOW.

Orman was asked, With Which Party Will You Caucus?

“… if one party is clearly in the majority, I will seek to caucus with the party that was in the majority as that would be in the best interest for the state of Kansas.”

I have NEVER thought that because there was a majority response that their response would necessarily be what was good for everyone.

Mr. Mayor,

I’m a fellow Manhattanite, whose commitment to date, I’m afraid, is of the “Anyone-But-Huelskamp” variety. I’ve read your Resource Management paragraph, but how would you speak more specifically to:

1) climate change

2) a permit for the Keystone XL pipeline

3) supporting the new EPA carbon regulations for Kansas

4) the status of the First District’s Ogallala aquifer?

Thank you, and good luck in November.

September parade info-

City of Clay Center, Clay Center, KS

The Piotique Festival is always the last Saturday in September. It began in 1936 to celebrate the opening of Highway 24 west of Clay Center and the bridge over the Republican River at Wakefield that opened the doors for commerce. Needing a special name for this celebration, a contest was held and Mrs. Ed Cody won first prize for the unique name of “Piotique” (Pi-o-teek), a combination of Pioneer and Antique. 5,000 attendees expected

My name is Walter Bishop, the Political Assistant at the Truman National Security Project in D.C ( I wanted to reach out to discuss the ways Truman can be helpful to you and the campaign moving forward.

I would love to setup a time to chat over the next week or two to discuss how Truman can help play a pivotal role on the campaign. Please let me know what works best for you and we can get it on the books. I look forward to chatting soon.

Best Wishes,

I don’t think you’ll find many Kansans that don’t agree that Huelskamp has to go, but where exactly do you stand on the issues?

Around the end of July, my wife (Patsy Whiteford) and I will be hosting a house party for Paul Davis, in support of his effort to become the new Governor of Kansas. We do not have an exact date as of yet, but are in contact with his campaign staff working on a date. We would like you to attend this party to meet residents of Hutchinson. Please contact me by email so I may keep you updated if this is something you would like to do.

Here’s what I sent to Jenkins, Roberts, and Moran: For the life of me, I cannot understand why Republicans are so desperate to take away health insurance from over 8 million of their constituents. Will doing this get them more votes in November from Obama-haters? Possibly, but Democrats have a wonderful wedge issue to use in getting those 8 million voters to the polls in order to protect their healthcare.

Do you really want the people who voted you into office to have to seek health care in the Emergency Room—often too late to save their lives, and raising the price the rest of us must pay to cover these high costs? That seems to me to be cruel and unusual punishment, prohibited by the 8th Amendment to the Constitution, ratified 12/15/1791—especially when the “crime” has been to be unable to afford insurance, or to have reached one’s maximum, or to have had a pre-existing condition.

My wife and I are covered by Medicare and, at our age, probably will be for the rest of our lives—unless Congressman Ryan succeeds in making it a voucher system, under which I especially would have no chance, with my many health problems, of finding care at an affordable price, if I could find any at all. We’d might have to emigrate to Canada, where all residents are covered at much lower cost than we Americans pay. The USA and the State of Kansas would lose two more taxpayers if the Ryan plan succeeds.

Please do your best for your constituents’ needs. America needs affordable health care now.

Check out This belies what Jenkins and (especially) Huelskamp have been saying—irresponsible lies that fewer are insured now than before the ACA took effect.

We met at Washington Days. I know what it costs to run campaign as I am challenging Jan Pauls in the Democratic Primary. My wife Anne Lauer and I would like to offer you our guest room when you are campaigning in the Hutchinson area. Several years ago we renovated and now live in the Emerson Carey Building. Some photos of this can be found here

We look forward to hearing from your campaign regarding this. This would include breakfast. I (Brian) makes a terrific omelette and you can dine al fresco on our deck if it’s nice weather.

Let us know.

I’ve just watched a CNN report on fracking and it has me more than concerned. Do you have contact folks at the University in geology, etc. who are up to date on this? The CNN item is located on YouTube: ExplainItToMe/fracking. I believe it’s Ohio that is the first State to recognize how badly needed State (and hopefully Federal as well) regulations are needed. Starting this next week, if I heard it correctly, all fracking operations will be under close scrutiny. If there’s a certain level of quake activity/intensity then it will be looked into and if the quake goes above a certain level, the site will be shut down permanently.

Under our current governor’s attraction to and probably paid by you know who, I doubt Kansas will be able to be as proactive (and smart, for heaven’s sake) as Ohio. One can always pray for immediate intervention by an Angry God!

I’ll look forward to any information you might have for my additional research. One of the other women attending our meeting with you is a farm woman who is being romanced by some Big Oil corp to allow them to frack on her land…and her land borders right up against my younger daughter’s family’s home in which two of my young grandkids (ages 7 and 14) are still at home. The concern CNN brings up (as well as the now-documented increase in fault-line earthquake activity) is what types of chemicals are leaching into our groundwater and our wells. My daughter and her family use well water – and I’m going to take my own supply of water to Easter celebration at their home after listening to that very well-presented documentary.

NOW I’m going to bed so I can get to church on time!

Jim – I have a cousin who is in the Cheyenne Co. Hospital and I’m sending her my only business card of yours I have. Could you please send me about 100 of them so I can pass them out to western-Kansas family and friends who are as sick of the current District #1 House Rep as I am – and to other “standing in the middle of the room trying to decide” whether they even SHOULD vote? These are all target people I will be spreading the great news that there is a candidate worth voting for and who will represent our district with integrity. You are an unexpected breath of fresh air! Please don’t get yourself scripted into too long of an introduction but get on to your audience’s particular questions ASAP just as you did when you met with us here in Morris County. The room was lit up with energy as you talked and after you left! If every county in The Big One starts out and continues with the energy Shelley has us in already, you’re a shoo-in! Please know that my prayers are with you constantly…we HAVE to rid ourselves of a lousy governor and our current district House Rep…and all the other Republican junk that lurks in our poor State. I want to keep Tom Moxley in as he is the only moderate Republican I can locate and he and his family attend my church. We have some VERY interesting conversations – all of them good and insightful. I hope he’s in the “No Label” group you mentioned – and that in the next Legislative Session YOU are right there with him making all of us able to once more be proud of Kansas and not embarrassed. No offense to your wife, but I really would prefer not to emigrate to Canada (my other choice is Italy but that’s a bit drastic!). A thought for your items for those of us on Medicare, Medicaid and Disability: There is all sorts of financial help for those of us who need cataract surgery and the blessing of Medicare Part B paying for nearly all of the life-giving help of nebulizers and the medications required for them. We have decent visual coverage for glasses, too. However, and this frosts me personally because I have extremely poor teeth, we have virtually NO coverage for even minor dental care. I’ve been in the medical field in one form or another most of my adult life and dental abscessed and loss of teeth is rampant in our adult population. Please pay special attention to your audiences as you speak with them. See if you feel anyone who is in my age range (71) has any missing teeth or NO teeth at all. An infection in the teeth can lead to an infection that affects the heart and is actually, in my humble opinion, of more influence on our overall health than all the other services combined. If I can’t afford (and I can’t) private insurance to see a dentist regularly and, beyond that, can’t afford to have my ancient, genetically soft and fluoride denied in the drinking water in Goodland, KS while I was in the age range where having that simple addition to my water intake would have prevented a large amount of expense over the years of just patch/patch/patch and I wouldn’t have a set of teeth that simply need to be fully extracted (and given a decent burial) and then replaced with dentures so I can maintain a good nutritional base and live to the age of 97 that is my predicted age of heading pleasantly under the care of a hospice group here in my own home after a full and productive life as a hard-working Kansan. Right now each year there is a dental treatment plan that has (from around age 55 to present) been approximately $2,500 per year…each year…Right now the coverage I have pays $1,500/year for repair and my responsibility is the remainder. All preventive care is free. My dental plan through my current employer lets me see a fine dentist in Manhattan, but I am frankly AT the Gorilla Glue and duct tape point in my life and I’m going to be insisting at my next visit with my dentist that we go the full extraction and dentures route. Just casually observe your potential constituents if you will, and you might have your campaign staff also sound them out as to what they feel Medicare coverage is lacking for us. And, of course, those of us who are “veterans” of the hard-working workforce since age 14 in my case hope that a high priority of your time at the national level (and I’ll vote for you for President, too!) will be to no longer allow the drain of those Medicare funds that were supposed to be JUST for helping those of us of retirement age keep our noses above water. I get extremely irate when I check in on where those funds get siphoned off to rescue another program. I sometimes worked three jobs at the same time in order to raise my family by myself after divorcing and getting no child support at all. I got my Bachelor’s from KU by finishing my last semester by correspondence in the same year I got my Master’s from The Univ. of Iowa. I have followed my family’s deep work ethic and have contributed a lot to Medicare – I have no portfolio to fall back on…only the Medicare check that covers most of my basic needs but I still have to work in order to fill in the “extras” such as medicines which average about $1,000/year. We earned that payback…and if it stops the country is going to see a rebellion than any ever seen in the US before. A large portion of our population exists BELOW the poverty line and that simply is not fair.

Thus ends this evening’s stream-of-consciousness chat with you, Sir. I hope my occasional contacts with you won’t irritate. You could archive them and have your staff riffle through them for the “gems” I hope to send on.

May God go with you on this journey of yours that is so important to all Kansans! My prayers will be with you from here on out. Jean Bowans Chappell – formerly from Goodland, KS

Good Afternoon,

My name is Joshua Sellards. I am sending you this email to explain my situation with Kansas State University. I was stationed in Camp Pendleton California for my 4 year enlistment. Upon reaching the end of my contract I decided to EAS and attend college. The college that accepted me was Kansas State University. On August 16, 2011, I left Camp Pendleton for Salina KS to start class on August 22, 2011. My active duty did not end until September 11, 2011. Therefore, I was still active duty when classes started. I was told by the register that me being on active duty did not count for anything and that I had to live in the state for one year before I could gain in-state tuition. After living in the state for the year I applied for in-state tuition. For the second time, I was told that I have to buy a house and then I could gain in-state tuition because I showed them that I did not come to the state just for college. On march, 22 2013, I bought my first house at 815 state St in Salina ks. After I was moved in, I contacted the University again for in-state tuition and again I was denied. I then set up an appeal. On that appeal I was told that I had to be stationed in Kansas to gain in-state tuition. I am in my third year at Kansas State University. I have over $40,000 in student loans due to out-of-state tuition fees. I looking to change the law that would make it clear to all veterans that their GI bill will cover their tuition and fees. I also want to change my tuition rate for this next year so I don’t have to gain more student loan debt. Thank you for reading this email.

Joshua Sellards,

USMC Veteran
