The governor's administration contends that many homeowners would actually gain hundreds of dollars a year when the rate cuts are fully phased in. And that the state's surging economic activity will make up the revenue from the rate cuts long term.
Laffer, who has been a consultant for Brownback's administration, says the bountiful economic results of Brownback's plan, along with others favored by Republican Govs. Bobby Jindal in Louisiana, Mike Pence in Indiana and Pat McCrory in North Carolina, will be evident after the new system is in place and working.
"We have huge amounts of experimentation going on at the state level that will make a huge difference with the federal government," said Laffer.
