Doyle Carpet-Bombs State's Finances--Then Leaves

Tell me again why James Earl Doyle, Thief-in-Chief of Wisconsin, is entitled to a taxpayer-funded pension.

In spite of a recent round of cost cutting, the potential shortfall in the state's health-care programs for the poor, elderly and disabled has grown to as much as $850 million in state and federal money, threatening to throw the entire state budget out of balance...

There was the usual lying:

The shortfall figures that came Wednesday showed the full extent of the problems in Medicaid programs to be much larger than was publicly announced as recently as December 2009

....because, after all, Who Coulda Knowed?

Waitaminit.....I thought Rusty said on his TV ad (not the one that lies about Johnson and drilling in the Great Lakes) that here in Wisconsin, we live within our means?

Rusty's full of crap too.

Speaking of Rusty, isn't it a major part of PlaceboCare (which he voted for) to vastly expand Medicaid without the means to pay for it?

Yes, Steve.

So if Wisconsin 'lives within its means' over the next 5 years, it's likely that taxes will rise here by 100% or so.

OR we could simply burn down the Capitol and dismiss all the State employees.

You decide!

I'm for Plan B...!

Of course that will probably get me on some 'terrorist' list. Time to visit Fletcher's again...
