"Tax-Reducing" Doyle? Depends on the Meaning of "Is"

Our Thief-in-Chief, James E. Doyle, rattles on about how 'Wisconsin's tax burden has decreased' since he took office.

He's very, very careful not to mention INDIRECT taxation, which is what occurs when legislators impose costs on utilities, which then pass those costs along to consumers.

That is, he's lying, but it's hard to see his lips move.

And there's a good reason for that strategic silence.

Tuesday, Democrat Leaders in the state Assembly came up with a brand new version of a 140 page global warming bill forcing a $700 million energy tax and over $15 billion in unnecessary energy costs on Wisconsin consumers and businesses. They called a meeting to pass the bill with barely 24-hours notice

What do we know about this bill?
- It will cost 43,000 more Wisconsin residents their jobs.
- Utilities warn it will force utility rates to rise from now until 2025.
- Utility rates will rise faster than the incomes of many Senior Citizens

Likely this nightmare will be passed.

Then it will be necessary to REPEAL IT.
