Stadium Sales Tax: Your Grandchildren Will Pay

This goes on forever, just like many predicted.

A Miller Park stadium district financial consultant said Tuesday that because of recent and significant declines in sales-tax revenue, the stadium sales tax may have to be extended beyond 2014.

The 0.1% stadium sales tax was first enacted in 1996 and is paid by residents living in Racine, Ozaukee, Washington, Waukesha and Milwaukee counties.

The high-handed enactment, featuring Tommy Thompson's "Stick It To 'Em" screech, cost one Legislator his job, too...a well-deserved recall.

Next "projection": 2017. Twenty-one years.

Got to hand it to the Liberals in San Francisco, the taxpayers are not being abused this time.
