Wall Street Journal: A Wichita Shocker
Last week, Wichita residents voted against big government, defeating a guest tax subsidy which would have amounted to roughly $2.25 million in guest tax revenues over the next 15 years. This success was due in large part to the work of Americans for Prosperity.
The Wall Street Journal published an article on March 6, “A Wichita Shocker: You can beat city hall.”
“The elites are stunned, but they shouldn’t be. The core issue is fairnessand not of the soak-the-rich kind that President Obama practices. One of the leaders of the opposition, Derrick Sontag, director of Americans for Prosperity in Kansas, says that what infuriated voters was the veneer of “political cronyism,” WSJ said.
