Tonight Governor Doyle proposed doing what politicians in Washington have refused to do -- raise taxes in the midst of a recession. While I am willing to work with anyone to help solve our state's budget mess, I simply cannot support the Governor in his effort to place a higher tax burden on the people of this state.
Combined with the budget bailout bill being fast-tracked through the legislature tomorrow, the Governor has proposed raising taxes on income, capital gains, hospital care, tobacco, internet purchases, and gasoline.
....displaying a singular lack of imagination; Doylie COULD have tried taxing toilet-flushes, food, ATM transactions, and keystrokes.
Maybe next year.
