The Kansas Policy Institute took to Twitter this afternoon to shill for flat tax - and deceive Kansans. In their literal fake news headline KPI states "... claim flat tax creates deficits is not true..." without making any mention of the fact that the same research they cite shows the exact opposite - and that the flat tax plan would lead to a literal deficit of $308.4 million after 5 years.
Kansans know a bill of goods when they see one, so KPI's attempts to make the facts fit their story are unlikely to work. Still, it would be nice if they didn't try to trick us in the first place.
