Kansas wants federal money to promote marriage

  • Sam Brownback wants more people to get hitched.

Just a week after telling the federal government to take its $31 million to implement parts of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and shove it, Kansas is now asking for federal money. But it’s to promote marriage, not health care, so it’s cool, guys.

When the state rejected the health-care cash, Gov. Sam Brownback distributed a press release in which he said, “There is much uncertainty surrounding the ability of the federal government to meet its already budgeted future spending obligations. Every state should be preparing for fewer federal resources, not more.”
