Crowson: We Saw The Light

Jun 14, 2017

I’m just going to borrow an old Hank Williams song here to celebrate how the 2017 Kansas Legislature converted our state with a good old-fashioned born-again experience!

The whole nation wondered, they pointed and gasped
“What’s the matter with Kansas?” that question they asked
Our state was in trouble, our budget was a fright
Raise the revenue! We saw the light!

The governor had promised it would not take long
Kansans were lab rats he experimented on
He shot us with poison and called it adrenalin
He might near killed us, but we’re back again!

We saw the light, we saw the light
No more supply-side delusions in sight
We’ve gotten rid of that trickle-down fright
Raise the revenue! We saw the light!

Now in the White House, there’s a big orange guy
He wants to give our failed experiment a try
He wants America to experience our night (mare)
Raise the resistance! Let’s all see the light!

We saw the light, we saw the light
No more supply – side delusions in sight
We’ve gotten rid of that trickle-down fright
Raise the revenue! We saw the light!
