Zipperer Gets It Right

Now that Doylie has released his confiscation plan budget plan, we note happily that Rich Zipperer understands the problem.

Tonight Governor Doyle proposed doing what politicians in Washington have refused to do -- raise taxes in the midst of a recession. While I am willing to work with anyone to help solve our state's budget mess, I simply cannot support the Governor in his effort to place a higher tax burden on the people of this state.

Combined with the budget bailout bill being fast-tracked through the legislature tomorrow, the Governor has proposed raising taxes on income, capital gains, hospital care, tobacco, internet purchases, and gasoline.

....displaying a singular lack of imagination; Doylie COULD have tried taxing toilet-flushes, food, ATM transactions, and keystrokes.

Maybe next year.

Good luck to the man on finding any capital gains out there.
