"Low-Tax" Wisconsin: Horsehockey

Just happened to open my telephone bill.

Wisconsin taxes added:

County 911 surcharge
WI State Sales Tax
Selig Playground Tax
Police Fire Protection Fee
Wisconsin PSC Remainder Assessment
Regulatory Assessment Fee

Altogether, around $9.00 for those--or $110.00/year.

But we're not done!!

Auto Insurance went up ~$120.00/year DESPITE increased deductibles AND despite a very clean driving record--with the very same cars, coverage limits, and drivers, that courtesy of being in the Doylet for Trial Lawyers.

$230.00 in hidden taxes, "fees", and costs.

Nothing to see here.
