Another math challenged politician

Sam Brownback, governor of Kansas, says you can cut your state's income by 40% and still protect vital services. Who really thinks that will work? It reminds me of my issues with Reagan's promises about cutting taxes, increasing defense spending and still cutting the deficit. None of that worked then and I don't see anything that convinces me that Brownback and his fellow GOP governors who talk about eliminating income taxes can make their math work now.
