Stadium Tax Reality Check

Buried (as usual) near the bottom of the article is the following nugget:

In order to retire the sales tax in 2014, the district needs sales tax growth to average 5.5% a year. In addition, district investments must grow 3.5% a year, according to Jay Williams, board chairman.

That's a LOT of growth. Essentially, they're hoping that the SE Wisconsin economy outgrows the national economy by a significant margin every year until 2014.

Yah, well. Another Tommy Thompson sales job gets its makeup removed...
