One Wisconsin Now, a progressive liberal organization in Wisconsin has issued another fluffy press release which is nothing but fluff titling “Wisconsin GOP Leaders to Wisconsin: Yes We Can’t”.
Lets get to the facts of the press release. First, this press release attacks Scott Walker, Jeff and Scott Fitzgerald, and Rich Zipperer, but the press release only defends their attacks as right now Wisconsin taxpayers are getting more fed up about the stimulus in which every day is becoming more of a sham and a political con job.
What OWN doesn’t want to tell you in their fluffy press release that they are for making Wisconsin’s fiscal crisis worse by asking for at least $ 3.2 billion in stimulus aid. Wisconsin has had for way too long in both parties using one time buyouts to balance budget messes. What every taxpayer is dreading right now in Wisconsin is the State Budget. What One Wisconsin Now doesn’t want to tell you that they are for making Wisconsin’s Business Climate worse as now the State Senate of Wisconsin passed four new bills to make our business climate worse and drive jobs out of Wisconsin as the non-partisan Tax Foundation says we are near the ten worse states for business climate.
What OWN is doing that they are painting a pretty picture skirting around the reality of the sham of the stimulus package while at the same time Wisconsin taxpayers are dreading that the Democrats in control of the State Government will raise taxes across the board. Why will taxes go up in the State Budget is that the progressive left is not going to get enough stimulus aid to their satisfaction that the hard working people of Wisconsin will be hit with a higher tax bill. With Wisconsin only receiving over $3 billion in stimulus aid, expect the structural deficit to get worse, expect all people to have their income taxes go up, and expect the sick tax, the oil franchise tax, and also a load of other excise taxes that would make Governor David Paterson and New York’s State Budget that would put the Empire State in the Minor Leagues alone.
What I said about what One Wisconsin Now is not going to tell you is just an attempt to use political puffery to avoid the reality that its not just the economy, but its the fiscal mismanagement of the Doyle Administration that has put Wisconsin in this position.
Wisconsin needs to wake up and realize that we cannot bail out ourselves out of budget mess and add on more debt to Wisconsin’s growing fiscal crisis.
