Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is being lionized by the Republican right for seeking to eliminate his state's income tax and making his state a testing ground for conservative economic theories.

But his latest tax proposals are now stuck in the Legislature, where real estate brokers and residents are fighting his plan to end deductions claimed by 300,000 homeowners. Some of Brownback's allies worry that lawmakers could try to change his plan by slashing other deductions or by making drastic cuts to schools and other state programs.

The governor insists that all taxpayers will benefit if they allow the new tax system to go into effect. He says the tax revenue lost from the rate cuts will be made up by revenue generated by an expanding economy.
