DarthDoyle: Kiss My Taxes!

So far, I've seen two different figures estimating the total tax increases proposed by DarthDoyle, whose Madistan-Extreme-Left colors are flying high.

The first, $1 Billion, comes from the Republican Assembly Speaker. The second, a whopping

comes from another Assemblyman of the (R) stripe.
By the way, the "Madistan" reference is quite significant. A recent presentation indicates that the median family income in Dane County is around $64K--whereas the median family income in Milwaukee County is around $35K.
It should not surprise anyone that a Dane County Democrat, with Dane County pals, thinks that $1 Billion, or a $Billion-Seven, is no big deal.
But that's going to be imposed on Milwaukee County residents, too. Gasoline, hospital, and cigarette taxes are regressive by their very nature (as are drivers/auto registration "fee" increases), and property-tax increases will be painful, too.
There are not too many Counties in the State where the median-family income exceeds $64K--but that's where DarthDoyle's Cabinet, and most State workers live. No big deal to them....
Pitchforks at dawn, anyone?

Only if I can carry a pitch soaked torh. I've always wanted to carry both. I could even bring my Italian Bastard sword. It's real, and would be appropriate, don't you think?
