There are three candidates, so far, for Governor of Kentucky in the next cycle, Matt Bevin, Andy Beshear and Rocky Adkins.
Kentucky currently has a tax and revenue system that is cutting edge state of the art if you were living in 1948. None of the current candidates have a clue how to address the issue.
Bevin, is attempting to make Sam Brownback look good as a Governor. Beshear is recycling his Dad’s idea of legalizing gambling as a panacea for the problem. Adkins, well Adkins has been in the state legislature for 31 years, one would think if he had a clue what to do he would have already tried to do it.
The problem with Kentucky’s finances has been, and still is, a group effort, Governors and Legislatures for several decades have exhibited a monumental level of incompetence. This is not a Democrat or Republican problem. This is a professional politician problem. They will say or do anything to get elected.A candidate that comes up with a plan to term limit the legislature, tax the service industry, reduce the tax breaks that give away over fifty percent (billions of dollars) of the tax revenue to special interests, that will be a candidate I can support.
