The school funding debate in the House chamber got heated on Thursday. Republican John Whitmer criticized Democrats who were opposing the plan. He said they had not offered a proposal of their own. Whitmer said Democrats have wanted additional funding for schools, but haven’t suggested where to get that money.
That prompted this response from Democrat Tom Burroughs.
“We value Kansas schools, we value Kansas teachers and we value legislators who are willing to work on part of that. You, sir, are an ideologist, a politician,” Burroughs says.
