Tax Freedom Day

Americans worked from Jan. 1st to April 9th of this year just to pay federal, state, and local taxes. That's 27 percent of the year! If we were required to pay for the government spending that has added to the deficit, we'd be working until May 17th.

GOP frontrunner Yoder continues momentum, raises over 500K in congressional bid

Last quarter, Rep. Kevin Yoder sent shockwaves through the political establishment in Kansas by raising 233K in less than a month. Now, Yoder has surpassed that incredible fundraising benchmark by raising nearly $267,000 during this 1st quarter--bringing his total fundraising to over $500,000. And this was all done without personal loans to his campaign.

To put that in perspective: Kevin's fundraising prowess surpasses that of leading candidates for statewide office, clearly demonstrating the excitement and energy here in the 3rd District to replace Dennis Moore with a real fiscal conservative.

Kevin Yoder has decisively maintained momentum as the clear frontrunner for the Republican nomination and the overall favorite to win the GOP primary and beat Stephene Moore in November.

The 3rd District is clearly responding to Kevin Yoder's message of fiscal restraint, accountability, and reigning in Washington spending and regulation. Yoder will cast his first vote against Nancy Pelosi for speaker, unlike Congressman Moore's wife, who has already pledged to be a party-line vote for government healthcare, cap-and-tax, expensive and economically counter-productive stimulus bills, and abortion-on-demand.
