Sam Brownback is locked in an unexpectedly tough re-election battle for doing exactly what he said he would do — cut taxes.<p>Citing mounting evidence that those tax cuts are creating a budget crisis – not stimulating the Kansas economy as promised — some in the state's moderate Republican establishment recently did the unthinkable: endorse a Democrat for governor.<p>That's not only endangering Brownback's re-election hopes, it's also tarnishing his plans to turn one of the reddest of red states into a national model.<p>Sam Brownback left the U.S. Thu, 24 Jul 2014 10:13:00 +0000 editor 37203 at http://ripr.org A Strange Political Dustup Clouds Kansas Governor's Future Videographer's 'Happy' View Of Gaza Turns Tragic http://ripr.org/post/videographers-happy-view-gaza-turns-tragic <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2014 NPR.

Abudayyah says Skype is the only way they can see the family members they have left behind.<p>He is a Western-educated budget expert who is working with the Palestinian Authority on finance reform, a post that makes it easier for him to obtain an Israeli permit to come and go from Gaza. But even for Abudayyah, getting permission is tough these days.
