This week, the New York Times explained how Brownback and other politicians have acted as Robin Hoods in reverse, citing Kansas' lavishing millions in incentives on AMC, a theatre chain now owned by billionaire Chinese mogul Wang Jianlin, founder of Dalian Wanda Group Corporation Limited.
Billionaire Wang Jianlin is one of China's richest men.
Soon after Kansas recruited AMC Entertainment with a $36 million award last year, the state cut its education budget by $104 million. AMC was moving only a few miles, across the border from Missouri. Workers saw little change other than in commuting times and office décor.
