Buechel Advocates OTHER People's Tax Increase

Fond du Lac County Executive Allen Buechel:

...counties are already struggling with increasing demands for services from those who've lost jobs in the ongoing economic downturn, and are making cuts to other, less-essential services, such as road paving, said Fond du Lac County Executive Allen Buechel at a Capitol news conference.

Any deep cuts in aid to local government will have "cascading effect," he said.

"The Legislature and Gov. Doyle cannot find an additional $6.6 billion to balance the budget through cuts alone, the cuts would hurt too many hard-working Wisconsin families and communities trying to recover from this recession," Buechel said. "There has to be a mix of spending cuts and responsible revenue increases."

I have an idea for you, Al, old boy!

Raise taxes in Fond du Lac County! Put your constituents' money where YOUR mouth is!
